Thank you.

Thank you for coming. For trying. For dedicating your time.

Thank you for walking through the door, even when you’re tired, busy and stressed.

Thank you for being part of our community. The gym wouldn’t be what it is without you. You are what makes Recursive great.

When people drop in, they comment on how great the community is. How everyone is so inviting and makes them feel welcome. That is what makes Recursive great, and that is why we thank you for being part of our community.

Community is about sticking together, cheering on those who are still going, encouraging them and helping them feel proud of what they’ve accomplished. It’s easy to get sucked into the feeling of weakness, that everyone else is stronger, faster, better than you are. Maybe you finish last in the WOD, but the rest of class is cheering you on, doing extra reps so they can stick with you. This is what community is all about.

Without you, Recursive is just a boring gym. There are no high fives at the end of a WOD, no cheering as you finish. No ‘nice jobs’, ‘good work today’. There’s barely even a ‘hello’ or a ‘goodbye’. It’s just a gym.

You are what makes Recursive what it is, a great place to not only workout, but to feel included, be a part of something bigger.

So thank you.
