Thoughts

A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you-

Undoubtedly you have noticed some changes here over the past fortnight. Since day one we have been changing, this applies to your cute life story as well. Indeed many “things” in life change and if you could allow us a few moments of your precious time, we would like to share some questions we received recently via email. Each one hints at change and rather than writing a painfully, bloviated post?  Prolixity is not something you will find here …

*We are paraphrasing the emails for your reading pleasure.

Tom – From Seattle

… Great site! Could you tell me more about your early posts? You guys seem to have quite a distaste towards CrossFit, the purveying atmosphere around CrossFit and those who choose to engage in extreme fitness programs?

Tom, our story here is one of injury, pain and suffering. Almost all of our off-line members (many of you as well) have suffered life altering injuries participating in events they loved and CrossFit just so happens to one of them. The early posts were raw with emotion, hate and vitriol … Then something changed. The problem was not the event, sport or routine (CrossFit). It was us. Hate is a powerful emotion that has evaporated over time and the more closely you analyze the details relating to the injuries, trying to find causation … You realize that you yourself are the problem.

Trish – From Auckland

… I’m curious as to why you guys switched to a Creative Commons License?

Trish, from post number one CultFit has been uncopyrighted. In essence this means every post has been released in the public domain, and the copyright on these posts as well.

There is no need to email asking for our permission … Everyone reading this today is free to use our content, however you choose! Email it, Pin-It, Like It, Share It, Write a book with “IT”. Your credit is appreciated but not required.

What you see here is yours, to do as you please. Our mindset of Seva is to give and not to hold, to let go of ownership and free ourselves of the stress and pain of trying to protect ownership (writing a book – copyrights). It is from this humble mindset that we embrace uncopyright. We sincerely hope that in doing so, our community will be better for it and we will all have a smile on our faces.

Notes:

Valentines Day will be the last day we post here at WordPress. You will be able to find us at Cultfit.org from then on out. There will be no “Likes” or “Follows” but rest assured we will be kicking around these parts enjoying your thoughts, company and inspiring posts.

      Thanks mate! Expect the same hijinks, just in a simpler, no mucking about sort of way. Personally, it looks as though a full spring/summer schedule is starting to come together for some of the people I coach. Less time pontificating and more time out at the events, which is my home away from home. If I can figure out how to write and blog while riding the back roads? On second thought, that could be dangerous! Take care this week and be well!

        At first I thought, many wouldn’t that be cool if we could write as we rode – but then I stopped myself… When I’m on the road, the last thing I want to do is work – riding is the one thing that I do that I can’t work while doing… I don’t want to wreck that.

  3. Wow – did not know that your blog was moving. I’ll be sure to check out the new site! My friend, you stay very busy to say the least 🙂 I am inspired your blog and your sincerity!

    • CultFit says:

      I have been working on the new site for so long now, too long actually. Part of it was making/designing a new theme (with some help) as well as really simplifying my message, I’ll still be writing and doing the same thing … Minus all the distractions. 🙂
