We love when new friends connect us to even newer friends for events. That’s exactly how it happened with Pariah CrossFit in Oceanside, California. Before Friday evening’s event, we got a few hours to stare out into the Pacific Ocean and just breathe.
It had been a couple years since I had been out here and this was Sam’s first time seeing the Pacific. It’s amazing what a few minutes of the ocean can really do.
From there we made our way to Pariah CrossFit for a couple hours of classes. One of the things we love visiting gym after gym is seeing how each location is set up a bit different, how they all run things a bit different and how they make it work for them.
I loved the way Corey, the gym owner worded it when he said “it’s a bit rough around the edges but it’s a gem.”
Besides as we’ve mentioned time and time again, it’s all about the community and this is a community with athletes of all levels from beginners to competitors, including those who hang around a little longer to cheer on and support other athletes.
There’s no doubt in our minds, it’s a gem alright.
