Visitors in ancient Greece seeking wisdom at the Oracle at Delphi encountered a two-word inscription on the temple wall: ΓΝΩΘΙ ΣΑΥΤΟΝ, an ancient Greek phrase meaning “Know Thyself.” We started CrossFit Mt Olympus to change our own lives through physical fitness. We knew that being stronger and faster would make other aspects of our lives better. Like Prometheus, we wanted to share the CrossFit fire with humanity. This is why we chose the name CrossFit Mt Olympus: we found the way to unleash our inner gods and goddesses.
As we have contemplated over the last four years why we do CrossFit, “Know Thyself” summed it up succinctly.
Change Your Life
Our goal is to help you be a better person outside the gym walls. We all have different goals and purposes for life. As coaches, we know you will be better parents, , spouses, teachers, whatever you choose to be, you will be better because you are stronger in body, mind and spirit.
Everyday you will face your inner fears and that lying voice that says, “You can’t do this, you’re not good enough.” Hopefully nothing in your day will approach the challenge of the Workout of the Day.
Join us on the journey. The quest to “know thyself” will change you. And you’re going to like who you become. I guarantee it.
