What Type of CFer Are You: The Mama / Papa Bear

We all know the mama / papa bear type!  When you see a newbie standing all alone before class, you’re the first one to go over and introduce yourself to make him / her feel welcome.  After some casual get-to-know-you exchanges, you’ll lead the newbie through each exercise on the floor, making sure to explain each in detail.  During the workout, you’re often seen shepherding newbies and experienced-yet-confused (due to exhaustion-induced delirium) CFers through the format, stations, runs, etc, sometimes at the expense of your own workout.  The mama / papa bear is always making sure nobody is left out to dry, lest we hear the dreaded command of “OUTSIDE!!” on your watch!

    Let’s hope we all can classify ourselves (at least if you are not a new person) as someone in this category!
