The training methodology of CrossFit is one reason why members continually join and stick with their regimen. But many athletes may also find that their best friends, and strongest bonds, are forged with those who workout right beside them.
The concept shines light onto CrossFits military ties but also to the community and camaraderie that surrounds the sport. When CrossFit ReVamped and 12 Labours Columbia opened their doors five years ago- they were neighboring businesses. Fast-forward to 2017 and the two gyms are no longer neighbors, but have managed to build up the Columbia, Maryland CrossFit community with impressively fit athletes with a loyal local and global following.
Both gyms have sent individual (ReVamped) and team (12 Labours) athletes to the CrossFit Games in the past. This year, both facilities are sending a team of six athletes to the CrossFit Games in Madison, WI.
To celebrate this feat, we have decided to join forces as a collective CrossFit community- the foundation of this sport.
