“I think initially, people are not in love with it. But they fall in love with the community that comes together to support one another. We ask our clients to get uncomfortable—and no one really wants to get uncomfortable—but when they experience the results of getting uncomfortable, the reward is what keeps them coming back. They push themselves a little bit harder. They challenge not only their bodies but also their mental capacities to do one more rep or go a little bit harder or show up when they don’t want to. A lot of us don’t do that in other areas of our life.” - Crossfit Central’s Co-founders Jeremy Thiel and Carey Kepler, Best CrossFit Facility
