As I reflect on what community means to me, I can’t help but take a walk down memory lane and think of all the communities I have been a part of, there have been A LOT.
Each one has brought life-long friendships, opportunities, a sense of belonging and the best times in my life. Every community has in some way shaped who I am – I can almost pinpoint my character traits back to their community of origin.
Humans are social beings – we thrive in social interactions. Whether an introvert, or extrovert, or somewhere in the middle, we all possess a need to belong to some kind of community. This has been proven over and over again in studies – feelings of belonging and connection are crucial to a human’s sense of happiness and mental health.
Community is about growing with others.
For those who know, you know. For those of you who are new or have not yet joined – I will tell you a little, not so secret fact about All Day Fit. Our community is top shelf. The cream of the crop, if you will. We are supportive, accepting, caring, open-minded, motivating, encouraging and humorous.
Here are 5 ways we believe that being part of the All Day Fit community can enrich your life:
Inspiration & Motivation – we have some cool people doing some cool shit, both in and outside of the gym. Encouragement is ingrained in the DNA of our community. You will never leave an All Day Fit session feeling anything but inspired and motivated to CRUSH it…whatever your “it” may be.
A Network of Support – life happens and with that comes the good, the bad, the ugly and the unthinkable. When something happens, we rally behind you, whether it be congratulatory flowers, your playlist on loud during a workout, a bunch of crazy humans at your party or a shoulder to cry on. You will find support pouring in from every corner of our community.
Challenge – a community should challenge you to become a better human. All Day Fit is centered around bettering yourself. We will ask you some tough questions, we will encourage you to dig deep and we never judge. You are on your own journey and we (the entire community) is here to support you unconditionally.
Opportunity – as part of a community we get to learn from other human’s success and what they do with their day-to-day lives. We get to meet and interact with humans we never otherwise come across and that’s pretty damn cool. Your next job offer, best friend, partner or workout buddy may be waiting to meet you in our community!
Fun – hell yes, we will put you through a tough workout but guaranteed you are going to have a fun time doing it. Laughing at yourself is encouraged, dancing between sets is frequent, poking fun at Cassie’s quirky East coast language is a must and being your own ridiculous self is mandatory.
This community is so f**kin’ cool. I watch friendships form, members go through transformations (both mentally and physically), endless support in tough times, the recruitment of fellow humans who are inspired and quickly become part of the community and a shit ton of smiles & high fives.
