Why the name “Battle CrossFit”?
Battle CrossFit means so many things to so many people and every single Battle (Member) is here for their own personal reasons. Exercising and challenging themselves every day for whatever “battle” they are facing in their lives. Whether it be for physical reasons, emotional reasons, social reasons, whatever it may be, we all have our reasons why we originally stepped into the gym, and why we step through those doors every day. Our logo represents the “fighter” in all of us. The warrior who is not afraid to continue to face whatever “battle” we may have even on days when we feel like we are failing. There is a famous quote by Theodore Roosevelt, “The Man in The Arena” that captures the essence of Battle CrossFit, our logo, and our members. We strive valiantly to be strong warriors and fight our “battles” by stepping into the arena each day, and most importantly, continuing to dare greatly!
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt
