ATTITUDE: CrossFit Silverback (TX)

CrossFit Silverback in Texas puts it quite well in their mission statement.

To create a “Fitness Ministry”; a safe and professional environment that leads others to fully realize their potential through intensive and dedicated physical training with like minded athletes and personalized coaching.

We Believe:

  1. Health is not a relative term: Our creator gifted us three treasures; our bodies, minds and souls and to misuse, abuse, or neglect any one of these diminishes them all .
  2. We take responsibility for creating our own expectations and results: Society engineers all risk and challenge out of our lives and constantly markets a body and lifestyle image that only their latest pill or product can make possible. There is nothing a person can buy or eat that will replace a wasted life.
  3. Results are directly proportional to focused effort: Coaches and trainers will give every effort to create the opportunities of excellence; the athletes must apply themselves with equal dedication to fully realize their potential.
  4. All leadership is by example: We acknowledge all of our words and deeds impact others. Our actions must to empower or inspire others and never disappoint or discourage.
  5. Listening is the greatest skill: It is impossible to lead someone anywhere unless you understand where they have been and where they want to go.
  6. We are all athletes: no matter what our current physical condition:The human body is designed to run, hunt and fight and make more little hunter warriors. The training needs of an Olympian and grandparent differ by degree not kind.

I refuse to tiptoe through life, just to arrive safely at death.

Something we can all adopt in our attitude toward training.... and living.
