Sunday School – “What’s the Difference…”

April 13th, 2014 | 1 Comment

We’ve been growing a lot lately!  And the question we get often from prospective teammates:  “What’s the difference between Prometheus and [local CrossFit box]?”  While I know the answer, it’s been hard to articulate.  Prometheus is a special place, and we’ve written about that before.  And because we have our own mojo, it’s definitely not for everyone.  So I always answer with something about culture and fit and finding the right box.  But what is a Promethean?  And what’s with this Prometheus Athletics? Instead of yammering about it, I’m going to give you examples of Prometheans.  Starting May 3rd, we will reintroduce the Prometheus Lecture Series.  On Saturdays (May 3, May 17, May 31), we will have two Prometheans tell you about what they do outside of the box.  These 20min-30min talks will showcase what your teammates do when they’re not sweating and swearing next to you.  The speakers will present between 5pm-6pm.  Then we’ll have a potluck reception following.

The theme of the first month will be the “Young Guns”.  Most of the  speakers in May have recently been awarded or  will soon be awarded their PhDs.

June already has committed speakers and we welcome anybody who’s interested in sharing their “brief spark of consciousness” with the Prometheus Community.  Let’s show everyone “what the difference is…”.
