I have just been listening to the founder of CROSSFIT, Greg Glassman, speaking at Harvard Divinity School, about the purpose and vision of CROSSFIT. It has become a world wide phenomenon starting with one gym in 1995 to over 13,000 affiliates worldwide with a tribe of over 4,000,000 members!
I want to do the same with XTREMEPREPAREDNESS!
I want to build a tribe of people worldwide who make XTREMEPREPAREDNESS a major part of their lives! Instead of INDOOR “boxes” as CROSSFIT gyms are called I want to use Mother Nature as the gym!
I want to take XTREMEPREPAREDNESS beyond Preppers who only make up less than 2% of all Americans that have a lifestyle of Preparedness to a way larger percentage!
I have said over and over again that when not if we have a catastrophic natural or man made disaster happen in America that effects a large percentage of a city or even our nation, the expected first responders like police, fire and EMT personnel are possibly NOT going to be there to handle the situation! I have talked to numerous first responders who have told me that they will also be taking their families to their SAFE AREA!
So what are those LEFT BEHIND going to do?
The bad guys and gals are going to see an opportunity to take over! We do NOT want this happening!
So we that choose to stay behind have to BE PREPARED NOT SCARED!
A major part of being PREPARED so you are not scared is being mentally and physically fit!
Many of these people especially in the inner cities do not have the financial resources to workout in CROSSFIT boxes and other gyms. They do have the outdoors! We can build workout stations like we have in our greenway park here in Franklin NC, which very seldom do I see getting used!
We can offer them opportunities to come to the north Georgia and western North Carolina mountains where I live to begin to see what it is like to survive and live in nature. This same opportunity can be offered across the USA and even around the world!
We can teach people how to set up community gardens using the revolutionary Bioponica system developed by physician Dr. David Epstein that is discussed here on this web site. One large Bioponica unit could serve an entire neighborhood as David as done in Atlanta.
I am going to make XTREMEPREPAREDNESS as large as or larger than the CROSSFIT community!
