Trust



Pronunciation:
\ˈtrəst\
Function:
noun
Etymology:
Middle English, probably of Scandinavian origin; akin to Old Norse traust trust; akin to Old English trēowe faithful — more at true
Date:
13th century

1 a: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something

Our community extends beyond the boundaries of loose social association. The collective "coerced zen" suffering (thanks Ross) assures us that there is no doubt as to the nature of the athlete next to you. Trust is forged. Friends become family.

You know trust in our fellow sufferers starts from the top.

I trust that Kelly, Adrian, Kevin and Angel, are going to help me get the most I can out of every workout. I trust that they are going to be looking out for me so I don't get injured. I trust that they are going to teach me the proper form for the exercises we are performing. As a testament to SFCF these trusts were evident after the first workout that I ever did. I knew then that I would be coming back.

Its through this trust that we have with the people that lead us, that we can also trust that we will hold up our fellow crossfitter when he is doing a HSPU. That our fellow crossfitter will make sure good form is followed, and at the end of the workout we will get a congratulations for kicking some ass.

I also trust Kelly would end this by saying: Pastry and Latte time!

I love my Crossfit family! San Francisco Crossfit is more than just a place to get a workout. I trust many of you will agree.

today's video on crossfit.com is a guy touring the new Lalanne Crossfit gym on Howard St.

don't know who this yahoo is, but I took it personally when he referred to Kelly "Star-Let".

Im with Kitty, I actually took offense to another crossfit being opened. We have the best crossfit.......period. No one has our amazing group of cfitters who bust ass daily, and are truly crossfit addicts, and no one has the view of the Golden Gate Bridge where we are protected by the Fist of Poseidon. I dont know about anyone else, but im so in for next years CF games. We need to rep our crossfit and our trainers and win the affiliate cup and ride off into the sunset. CFSF vs. Lalanne fitness......its a war on the shore. By the way trust rules. Id go into battle with any of you by my side. Especially michael if he uses a watermelon as a helmet.

I may be biased, but who cares. I love working out in total darkness in the winter. I love having the sun set during my workout in the Spring. I love that if I set up my work station in just the right spot, I can have the Golden Gate Bridge as my distant focal point. I love to empty 2 lbs of sand from my shoes after a beach workout. I love that the famous Crissy Field head wind smacks us right in the face on the way back from the 400 meter run (or if Angel is teaching for the last half mile of a timed mile run). I love that there is always parking. I love that if you've worked out so hard and puke, you get to kiss the snake. I love that Kelly won't let me wear gloves. I love that Adrian won't let us get away with no doing double unders even if it is one at a time. I love that we often have puppies and dogs attend our workouts. But most of all I love that this list could go on and on.

Lucas,

I would don my lederhosen armor and watermelon helmet and stand shoulder to shoulder with you in battle anytime. My faith and trust in you, as with all my fellow SFCF-ers, runs deep. Real deep.

That, said, in the spirit of full disclosure, I have to warn you, things are about to get a little weird....

Two dragons.

I swear, you guys, cut and paste all you've said and put it on Yelp.com. Your comments are amazing and I agree 1000%.

Everyone needs to know SFCF is The Best.

Ian, you rock for doing it already.

I trust that the coaches will deliver incredible work outs. I trust that every athlete will push their limits. I trust that if my form fails or I dog my performance that I will be called out. I trust that every day will make me better.



Zen coerced or not is still zen. The point of zen is to calm the mind to achieve enlightenment. The mind can be stilled by the koan. For example "what is the sound of one hand clapping?" The mind can be stilled by activity that focuses and allows the mind to achieve a higher level of consciousness. This activity can be calm or rigorous. Does this help explain why we all come back for more?
