Find Your Tribe

It’s been said that you become the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

Seth Godin says, “One of the most powerful of our survival mechanisms is to be part of a tribe, to contribute to (and take from) a group of like-minded people. We are drawn to leaders and to their ideas, and we can’t resist the rush of belonging and the thrill of the new.”

The quarantine and closing of our gyms in early 2020 was so tough. Not being able to hang out with friends and family was so lonely.

There’s a difference when you’re there in person. The buzz of energy. The sounds of controlled chaos. Your friends pushing you when you thought you couldn’t run faster or couldn’t do another rep. But then you did.

If you don’t go to class, you miss the camaraderie of that tribe of people pulling for you to succeed. Workouts at 5 a.m. don’t seem nearly as early when surrounded by your tribe. All the feels are not the same when you see your people through a computer screen.

There’s something incredibly special about a group of people that suffer and sweat together.

Tribes of all kinds are important because:

-Life will have its difficult times. You will fail. You will make mistakes. You’ll want the support of a tribe.

-There will be things that you don’t want to do (but you need to do). You’re going to need people to believe in you more than you believe in yourself at those moments.

-There are people that care about what you have to say. You need to find them.

We truly believe that at Iron Jungle CrossFit, our members are each other’s tribe. If you aren’t a member yet, we would love to be yours! Book your free No Sweat Intro to meet with a coach here.
