One of the best parts of my job is all the interesting conversations that I get to have with CrossFit Empower members.
We have a diverse crew of folks working out with us at our Dunbar Street location and the topics can be similarly diverse.
And an educated bunch too! As Brawn once observed in his typically witty way “You aren’t all a bunch of meat heads like I expected!”
We have doctors, lawyers, dentists, surgeons, nurses, teachers, counselors, accountants and every other species of educated professional in Vancouver. Not to mention a whole mess of grad students plus professors from what seems like every faculty at UBC.
So while conversations can be funny, risque & ribald they can also be equally intellectual, informative and philosophical.
The level of comfort we enjoy with one another it seems no topic is taboo. Today the conversation turned to menopause, circumcision & vasectomy. An entertaining selection with all the levity you would expect tempered with some sober notes because these are topics which effect the health and wellness of our members.
At the end of the day it is not the subject matter which stands out as much as the relationships built. We are all traveling through life together navigating relationships, careers & the sometimes turbulent waters of parenthood. It is very rewarding to have such great friends to share the journey with:)
