Every now and then a stranger walks by the gym when the doors are all rolled up and the place is jumping with energy, and they usually look both bewildered and intrigued.  They gawk at a warehouse full of people working their asses off doing a bunch of odd looking movements... sweating, screaming at each other in support, and looking like they're one part suffering and one part partying. 

Often times these onlookers will ask me, "Dude, what the hell are y'all trainin' so damn hard for?!"  Sometimes it's followed-up with "is this some sort of co-ed football team or fighting practice?"

My answer is simple, and is usually the same every time.  "Nah, this isn't a sports team.  These are our members.  We're training hard not to suck at life."
