CrossFit Mission Gorge's Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide the CrossFit Mission Gorge community with effective, efficient, and intelligent workouts utilizing CROSSFIT® methods. We strive to promote lifelong adherence to a health and fitness program through realistic goal setting and education, regardless of the individual’s current level of fitness.  Our goal is to provide each member of our community with superior coaching and in-depth information on the principles of strength training, flexibility, cardiovascular conditioning, injury prevention, rehabilitation, and nutrition.  We recognize that we have a social responsibility to encompass charity and increase our presence and impact beyond the walls of our gym, and into our surrounding community.

CrossFit Mission Gorge has been working on a few things behind the scenes for the last month in order to improve the way we coach, train, and serve our members.  One of the big changes we made was to revamp our mission statement.  Creating a mission statement is an important step in not only stating the purpose of our existence, but also outlining our values and goals, in a tangible way that will allow us to achieve more throughout our organization.

One important element we felt that we needed to add was the idea of encompassing charity.  To say that we have an amazing community at CrossFit Mission Gorge is an understatement.  We see members rally for each other on a daily basis, grinding through WODs, and supporting each other in training and achieving new PRs.  We have also seen this extend beyond just a group of people working out together.  We have seen members become immensely close, celebrating birthdays, weddings, babies, and showing support and compassion with another member who is sick or injured. We love watching a newer member become immediately embraced by our other members and community.  The community you have cultivated at CrossFit Mission Gorge is exemplary.  Most of us will agree that it takes a special type of person to be successful at CrossFit and embracing this lifestyle; a person who is full of heart, possesses physical toughness, exhibits self motivation, has a positive mental attitude, is encouraging to others, is open to new experiences, and has faith—in themself and others.

These same characteristics just so happen to translate directly over to charity, which is an altruistic goodwill and love towards humanity.  We already know how much of an impact we have on the small community we have formed at CFMG.  Why not expand our community and spread our love and positivity to those who need it outside of our gym?

We are calling all of you to help make a difference and help us carry out our goals in our mission statement.  It is the holiday season, a general time of the year where our hearts are warmed at the prospect of helping others.  We are going to kick off the season by presenting five opportunities (once a week until December 25th) to work together as a gym and do something with meaning, impacting others with the spirit we know and celebrate within the walls of CrossFit Mission Gorge.  Some of these opportunities ask for a donation of specific items, while others ask for a donation of your time.  We tried to come up with something that everyone could contribute to, big and small, and we would love it if you made the commitment to be a part of something bigger.  This is our big “kickoff,” but we intend on continuing to find ways to serve the community as a gym at various opportunities throughout year.

Please stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details on these opportunities.  We know this is something big, and we can’t to have you join us!
