CrossFit Tehachapi an example of why CrossFit is so popular.

  • Font size: Larger Smaller

Community, family, and brotherhood are all concepts that have driven humanity for ages. The human urge to feel part of something greater, the need to belong, and to be accepted is something that is felt at a very early age.

CrossFit has capitalized on this human need with group workouts, group competitions, and even group outings. Each athlete feels that they belong; and this leads to success in their fitness endeavors.

A recipe for success. - A group setting, with built in motivation and accountability.

Call it drinking the “Juice”, or whatever you want, CrossFit gets people involved, and accepts everyone. That is their strength.

One affiliate that excels at community building is CrossFit Tehachapi. With a focus on a well a rounded athlete, they get people involved. Whether it be the charity events they run, the monthly athlete challenges or even getting teams into mud runs, they consistently hit the mark when it comes to getting people involved. They make getting fit fun. It’s never easy, but always rewarding.

This philosophy pays off daily, and shows in their consistent growth.

This is a short video of Melissa Finnegan owner of CrossFit Tehachapi explaining what sets CrossFit apart. Part way through Ryan Finnegan speaks during one of their many events (This event HotShot 19) that they host throughout the year.

Below are some photos taken at the 2013 Mammoth Mountain Mud run in which CrossFit Tehachapi had three teams competing.

* Andy Sherman an athlete at CrossFit Tehachapi was kind enough to use one of our cameras and shoot the teams as they closed in on the finish line, and afterward.

I’d like to Andy thank for all the hard work, and great photos.

Closing thoughts

Although CrossFit has many different aspects that make it popular, I believe it’s the focus on community that is it’s driving force. In short it’s the people that make it work.

See you in the hills, or shortly at the beach.
