To be eligible to win the CrossFit For Duty Contest people from the public safety community we're asked why they should be chosen for a FREE 3-month Pioneer Valley CrossFit membership. Applicants would then be chosen by the essays they submitted.
Here's what one applicant had to say...
"I am really out of shape. This would not bother me nearly as much if I had a career where fitness was not vitally important. I am paid to lead men and women into hazardous environments on a daily basis. I trust that they are able to do their jobs to the best of their ability, and that they are in the right shape to do it. Well that makes me a bit of a hypocrite. I am not in shape, and I have struggled with losing weight for as long as I can remember. How can I, as a supervisor, expect them to be at their very best when I myself am not? I have had gym memberships in the past, but I dropped back into old habits, and all that work went out the window. With exercise programs, boredom usually kills me. I need variety, and I need structure as well. Many of my co-workers are CrossFit members, and I have never heard the word "boring" when they are describing CrossFit. I have seen how the people that I work with have improved their fitness levels and their overall job performance with this program.
I need to get fit for myself."
