Many times I have wondered why CrossFitters have such an unusual bond. After reading Dr. Allison Wenglin Belger’s book, “The Power of Community: CrossFit and The Force of Human Connection,” I now have a clear understanding.
Dr. Belger’s book explains through clear and concise text, the need of human beings to desire community to get them through many aspects of life. Considering that social media is quickly absorbing the world, the simple fact that people can physically share their struggles and victories through a community like CrossFit, has made an enormous difference in how several people continue to push through adversity and enhance their own lives.
Dr. Belger makes her point by drawing from her extensive education, her personal experience as an athlete, from professional studies and heartwarming stories that drive the point that we need “community” to better ourselves and others. Even though CrossFit is used to make this point, Dr. Belger’s vision can easily be translated to other communities, such as the military and religion. Therefore, making this book an easy read for everybody.
Overall, “The Power of Community: CrossFit and The Force of Human Connection,” is an inspirational and rewarding read. Though some of us may already feel or understand the “power,” it feels great to finally have perspective and know that you are not the only one that has had this phenomenal bond to a good community. Dr. Belger hit the nail on the head with her book. CrossFitter or not, get this book and prepare to be enlightened, educated, and shown “The Power of Community.”
