Maybe you’ve heard of it – Crossfit. To some, it’s a grueling varied workout that is completely exhausting yet, at the same time, rewarding and leaves the athlete wanting more. To others, it’s an insane cult-like group that speaks a foreign language (WOD, TABATA or AMRAP). Either way, it’s a phenomenon that has swept the nation the last several years and even hosts an international event, The Crossfit Games, to determine the fittest people on earth.
Crossfit has become a common place term in our house as well. Taking part in Crossfit helps make sure I don’t completely deteriorate sitting at a computer screen all day sandwiched between 3 hours of driving in the car. Which is why I was excited to help out our good friends with their growing Crossfit business, FitQuest. FitQuest delivers innovative and efficient solutions to modular gym set-ups (basically, they build equipment for Crossfit gyms – or boxes – as Crossfitters call them). And, even more recently, have begun a small gym of their own in Covington, Ohio utilizing FitQuest equipment. Keep an eye out for FitQuest, as the company continues to grow and have success you may see more of them in the Crossfit community.
It’s only a couple days away – a day to recognize fathers. The American culture’s portrait of a father, at least according to the media and Hallmark: an apathetic man, more interested in watching sports from his La-Z-Boy while completely disengaged from his wife and children and too ignorant or stupid to take on any significant responsibility. So, this is what we celebrate?
What about the man who completely gives himself up for his wife and children (Ephesians 5)? The man who tirelessly and humbly serves his family, their needs and their best interest is the one who is most celebrated by his wife and children. The responsibility of fatherhood, denying self and becoming a servant is not easy. If it were, more men would give up themselves because, in the end, the rewards are greater. Need some encouragement to battle through, deny yourself and take up the responsibility of being a good father? Visit Familyman Ministries for some encouragement this Father’s Day. Want to inspire a father in your life? These shirt designs are also available at www.familymanweb.com.
