Recently, I attended a local football match at Hepburn Football Club. I’ve been to many Clubs around Australia, but I am new to the Hepburn Football Club. It was a great day!

What made it a really great, was the company I found around the ground. Fellow members of the gym, the old publicans from around town and old School mates.  Everyone is up for a laugh, maybe a few whinges about the freezing cold whether, but spirits are high.

You see, humans thrive on relationships. We form them regularly and with almost any kind of entity, living—like a friend, partner or pet—or not, such as a car or barbell. We can even form relationships with characters in books, TV shows and films.

While many of you reading this are, like myself, more than comfortable spending time alone, we almost always thrive when we’re in the company of those who want the best for us.

Daylesford CrossFit members will have heard the phrase “The Family Gym” in conversations with us. You can get a transactional relationship almost anywhere. At the supermarket, the petrol station or at the gym, where the guy behind the counter, is busy cruising the ‘gram, grunts as you swipe your card in.

This is all well and good, but those relationships rarely last, and your loyalty to that business changes as quickly as the price of bread or petrol.

Then there are the intimate relationships we form. With our spouse, family and close friends; maybe our doctor or other trusted professionals.

This is where Daylesford CrossFit thrives.

We don’t lead a sea of people following a choreographed routine on TV screen, so we don’t do mass-market relationships, either. We work on a one-to-one basis. As a potential new member, you’ll sit down with us for a chat about you, your goals and fears, your hopes and wants. We prescribe a structured approach, starting with your most important needs. This might be nutrition, mobility or even confidence.

Your fitness journey at Daylesford CrossFit will always begin with one-on-one coaching, either via a personal CrossFit class or with an individually designed personal-training session. This is how we earn your trust. We don’t sell you on cheap memberships and long-term contracts; we coach you with expertise and care.

Trust is a crucial part of this equation.

We’ll accept you immediately, but for you, the process might be harder.

You may have been burned by false promises and had unrealistic expectations. You may have been sold the dream by a nutrition program promising lifelong weight loss—as long as you’re starving yourself or buying their meal-replacement products.

These experiences take time to recover from, and intimate relationships are the most effective way to do so.
