How CrossFit is Creating Connections in an Era of Isolation- FNP Article

Strong Communities:
How CrossFit is creating connections in an era of isolation

By Wyatt Massey wmassey@newspost.com Nov 16, 2018


FNP Pic.jpg

When Jessica Burchick moved back to Frederick, she was bringing a new life with her and, she thought, leaving a life behind.

Along with boxes of belongings, the 32-year-old had a husband and two children. But the move in the summer of 2014 meant leaving behind a life in Annapolis and the community she had formed.

But Burchick made a new community by continuing a hobby — CrossFit.

On a Monday evening in East Frederick, Burchick was one of 15 people pushing and squatting dumbbells at Odin CrossFit. During the pumping rhythms of Outkast and Beyoncé, the group encouraged one another to complete the workouts.

“Most of the friends that I have made in the area, I made here,” Burchick said. “When I came to Odin, I felt like I was meeting cousins of friends I made before.”

At a time of increasing social isolation created by technology and the ever-increasing haste of modern living, people are finding new ways and spaces to form communities.

Odin CrossFit, and gyms like it across the country, are one of those spaces. CrossFit was founded in 2000 and has since risen to a company with $4 billion in annual revenue, according to Forbes. There are reportedly more than 13,000 CrossFit gyms in the United States, an industry with more American locations than Starbucks.

The descriptions of communities there and the ways in which those groups are created mirror those that had historically been ascribed to the church. Meanwhile, more and more Americans are moving away from religion. Churches are no longer holding their role as a central spot for community building. Burchick said she grew up attending church but has since moved away.

“These older religions’ rigid guidelines are not really relevant today for people my age,” she said.

The services that historically have been filled in by church members — people in times of need, people to provide daycare — Burchick said she can find at her gym.

“There are definitely people from here I’d call if I had an emergency,” she said.

Searching for deep community

Angela Thurston has become a leading voice in identifying 21st century communities in part because she knew she wasn’t the kind of “non-belonger” she thought she was. The former New York City playwright, like many of her friends, was searching for a spiritual community.

She is not an agnostic or atheist but she was not turning to a religion to fulfill her. She was part of a trend that she felt was incomplete.

“There was an assumption built into that when I saw it reported in the news, it just meant that everyone was becoming secular to the extent of atheistic or agnostic and that they were just not going anywhere,” she said.

Her inquiry in the early 2010s led Thurston to Harvard Divinity School and the How We Gather projectbetween the university, the Fetzer Institute and On Being. The group’s work shows where millennials are engaging and what similarities these groups have to each other — as well as to religious communities despite using secular language.

The work provides nuance to statistics showing an overall decline in religion in America.

According to the Pew Research Center, the number of religiously unaffiliated Americans has risen from 1 in 10 in the 1970s to almost 1 in 4 in 2016 with Christianity losing the largest amount of followers among American religions. Younger generations are driving this growth in not replacing more religious older generations — 85 percent and 78 percent of the Silent Generation and Baby Boomers identify as Christian, while just over half of Millennials say the same.

That population of religious “nones” has reached nearly 56 million, according to a separate Pew report. The majority of these unaffiliated individuals reported not finding the church relevant, questioning its teachings or not believing in God.

Many religious leaders and followers misread those statistics, Thurston said.

“There seemed to be an assumption, at least in some cases, that a given person is waking up on a Sunday and making a decision not to go to church,” she said. “That there’s an active rejection of it on a daily or weekly basis. What I’ve encountered, it’s not in the set of considerations at all.”

Instead, a growing number of young people are raised in households where religion is not emphasized or they are raised in a mixed-religion household so not belonging to a single religion is normal. Between 2012 and 2017, the percentage of Americans describing themselves as spiritual but not religious increased from 19 to 27 percent, according to Pew.

Religious politics, rigid rules or perceived hypocrisy of its leaders can be off-putting, Thurston said. People are seeking out community and spirituality in other places. Humans crave connection as deeply as air and water, Thurston said.

“We are living at a time of crisis-level isolation and disconnection that we feel in terms of our polarized society and these record levels of anxiety and addiction and the like,” she said. “The result of that is that a lot of us just don’t know what deep community feels like.”

CrossFit boxes offer that kind of deep community in ways churches historically did, Thurston said. First, a participant’s success is connected to the progress of others. There is a sense that development is happening as a group and many boxes compete as teams against others. Second, the progress brings about a deep desire to share that experience with others, which promotes the evangelical elements of the industry. Third, the communities support one another — from when people are sick to philanthropic events to even watching each other’s children.

Finally, boxes attract a diverse group of individuals who are using the experience for a variety of reasons. The workout becomes a “flexible sacred space,” Thurston said.

“You have a blank canvas on which people can make meaning on their own terms,” she said. “That’s very appealing at this moment.”

‘The gym is not just a gym’

Rob Pugh stepped into Odin about two years ago looking for a hard workout. The 47-year-old did not want to think about designing an exercise or nutrition plan, so he was drawn to CrossFit.

The short workouts were a plus, too, he said, because he has a tight schedule with a wife, children and his work in commercial real estate.

Pugh found more than a workout. He found a group of people who cared about their health and wanted to see each other succeed.

“You’re touching everybody three, four, five times a week,” Pugh said. “You’re not meeting once a week, like church.”

Allison Jachowski, Odin CrossFit owner, said the box has always focused on people first.

Coaches invest in what she called a person’s emotional bank account. Little things — such as asking someone how their day is going and actually listening to the person’s response — become deposits. Each interaction builds the account and builds trust, shifting the workouts from a business interaction to one among friends.

“The bigger the bank account, the easier it is to coach someone,” she said. “It builds loyalty and now the gym is not just a gym.”

Jachowski said the Odin box hosts at least one event a month for its members that is not a workout. By taking away the exercise, the get-togethers offer people a chance to build personal relationships, she said.

Laura Smith said she had tried other gyms but usually felt out of place. Coming to Odin and getting into CrossFit helped her overcome an eating disorder, she said. Learning the movements and doing the intense workouts helped reframe the way she views food.

“I knew that if I did CrossFit, I needed to fuel my body for it,” Smith said. “It’s been a big confidence boost, personally.”

The community does not care about looks or how strong or fast a person is, she said.

Dinambi Butler said the humbling nature of the workouts creates a strong feeling of camaraderie. People are at different levels of fitness — or they may not share the same love the 26-year-old has for Olympic lifting — but everyone is in the workout together, he said.

“Even though we’re suffering in that moment, to have people cheering you on, yelling your name, that can be a big deal,” Butler said.

The CrossFit community is a welcoming place at a time when other groups isolate, he said.

“There are different rules that guard different groups, like religions or politics, and people are feeling isolated,” Butler said. “Individuals are starting to not feel a part of that, that they can’t grow with it. Then, there’s CrossFit where they can come.”

How did you get started at ODIN CrossFit?

Jessica Neumann told me I'd love it for about a year and I finally tried it out in Odin Unloaded. That was a gate way drug and within 2 months of doing that I signed a contract.

What was your first impression of ODIN CrossFit?

Very welcoming with friendly, like minded people. We're all goal orientated but like to have fun. Work hard, play hard!

 What changes have you seen in yourself since starting at ODIN?

I was a mess when I started Odin. I can run/bike/swim forever and I've got the mind of an "endurance" athlete but I neglected strength which was causing lots of recurring injuries. I have had 0 injuries in the last 2.5 years at Odin and I've gained so much strength. I don't even blink an eye if I have to lift or move anything anymore.

What keeps you committed and coming back to ODIN?

Odin constantly challenges me both physically and mentally. I don't think you can grow as a person if you don't challenge yourself with both CONSISTENTLY. There is no "I can't." at Odin. You just modify and keep moving and that's a good way to live your life.

What advice would you give to anyone looking to start CrossFit?

Leave your ego at the door and get ready to meet some incredible, like minded people. It's also important to be open and give yourself GRACE. The likelihood that you are going to join and be efficient in every movement is slim but that's why there's always room to have a new excited goal to work towards.

The Magic of the OPEN

Every year the CrossFit OPEN challenges us and pushes us past our comfort zone. This is where the magic happens and we really saw that this week at ODIN! 

18.3 was a real challenge physically and mentally for most. This workout included so many high level skills that it required you to be good at everything. For most, there was at least one movement that you were saying "I can't do that". It would have been so easy for you to give up right there, BUT you didn't! You showed and gave it your all. And for so many of you you surprised yourself and accomplished way more than you thought you would. Whether it was your first pull up, muscle up, double under...or just making it farther in the workout than you thought; everyone proved to themselves that you are stronger and faster than you give yourself credit for. 

This is what I love so much about the OPEN. You push yourself and try things you normally wouldn't. And boy did we see some amazing performances this week!

Keep up all your hard work and stay consistent. Progress takes time and consistency. But with a little patience, image what you will accomplish next year!

Cheers to the 2018 OPEN!
- Coach Allison

2018 ODIN Partner OPEN!

Comment

2018 ODIN Partner OPEN!

Time to grab your partner and register for the 2018 ODIN Partner OPEN!

5 Workouts Over 5 Weeks
Earn Points & Win Prizes!

How It Works
1. Grab a partner and sign up at the front desk.
You can be a team of M/M, F/F, or M/F. All skill levels can participate. AND! You and your partner don't need to be at the same skill level. 

2. The Workout is...
Every Thursday start Febuary 22nd CrossFit Games will announce the World Wide OPEN workout online. This is the workout that you and your partner will complete, individually. You can do it RX, Scaled, or even scaling the scaled. 

3. Complete the Workout
Complete the OPEN workout with a judge (judges will be provided) at Friday Night Lights 4pm-7:30pm each week during the OPEN. During this time we will be running heats all evening instead of 1hr. classes. Heats will be posted in TRIIB for you to pre-register for. If you can not make it Friday evening to complete the workout then we will have a judge available Saturday mornings 8am-9am. 

4. Earn Points
Each week, you and your partner earn points by completing the OPEN workout with a judge (individually). Additional points will be awarded to the Top 5 Male RX, Female RX, Male Scaled and Female Scaled scores for that week. Each week will also have a theme that you and your partner can earn more points for participating in. 

Do I have to have a judge?
Yes, this is part of participating and upholding the standards of the OPEN workouts. 

Who is Judging?
Anyone can judge! If you are participating in the OPEN workout we ask that you also help judge your fellow CrossFitters. Each OPEN workout has very specific movement standards and a score card with the workout and standards listed. We will go over those standards before each heat on Friday evenings. Judging is so much fun! Most people come in early Friday to help judge or stay after their heat to help judge when they are done the workout. Either way, everyone pitches in to make it an awesome experience for all!

What if I am out of town for one of the workouts?
No worries! You don't have to do the workout at ODIN. You can do the workout at another CrossFit gym in the town you are visiting. CrossFit gyms all over the world are expecting drop-ins for people to complete the OPEN workouts. Be sure to email that gym to find out what times they are offering to complete the workout. 

Do my partner and I have to do the same division?
No, one of you can do it RX and the other Scaled. It comes down to participating the OPEN workout no matter the skill level. 

What if I can't make it Friday or Saturday?
Please email info@odincrossfit.com in advance and we will do our best to set up a time for you to do your OPEN workout with a judge.

Being truly committed to something takes a lot of work and is not easy some days. Being an ODIN athlete isn't just about coming to the gym. It is about making a change in your life for the better.

Chrissy, Laura, Karl, Caroline, Kathleen and  Gregg have all committed to working hard in and out of the gym to be the best version of themselves. We are so proud of you all and love having you as an ODIN athlete!
