We trust that they know when to make us do thing we are good at, and know when to test us to overcome things that we are less than great at. They push us mentally, they push us physically and they push us to be better them our current selves.
At CrossFit Eastern Shore, our one goal is to be the best coaches we can be. Coaching is the very root of what CrossFit great. Greg Gassman, the founder of CrossFit, called himself a coach. To him, trainer was someone who simply put you through the motions of a workout. A coach, however, is someone who puts their entire heart into pushing you through the last rep, and someone who will never settle for mediocrity.
As CrossFit begins to grow, so are the options in terms of how to run a facility. Some people get into CrossFit Affiliate ownership for monetary purposes; they see an investment opportunity and they want to seize it. Others, have a huge passion for fitness and wish to use the CrossFit model to help other people since it is readily available and popular at this moment. Finally, there is a small group of people that own CrossFit gyms, simply to coach. They coach when they want to coach, and they coach when they would rather be spending time with their friends and family. They coach elite level athletes, and they coach people that genuinely need help and guidance on their fitness journey. They coach when the class is filled with 30 energetic athletes, and they coach when a single dedicated soul is working hard in the gym.
This is the true nature of a coach.
At CrossFit Eastern Shore, we promise you one thing.
You may find our schedules change, you may find our membership structures change. You may find new faces is your next class, or you may find yourself surrounded by your best friends from the past 3 years. You may see changes for the good, and you may see changes made through hard decisions.
One thing is a promise, however. We will never stop coaching you. We will never give up trying to make a break through when we know you are close. We will never stop trying to push you to a new PR. We will never accept faults as adequate or defeats as success, and we will never stop reinforcing the fundamentals.
No matter how your day has been, no matter what life is throwing at you; we will never stop being the foundation for continual greatness in your life.
We will never stop being your COACH.
