What are multi-colored, multi-patterned, and fly like the wind? FXB Columbus members’ socks on Wacky Sock Wednesdays!
Wacky socks have become a beloved tradition at FXB in Columbus, IN
, and just as any good tradition is handed down from generation to generation, the tradition of wacky socks is passed on from 10-week session to 10-week session. Some coaches spread wacky sock cheer by giving their team members their first pair of the 10-week challenge, while other teams coordinate their socks to match on any given Wednesday.
It is pretty common to see animal prints, neon colors, funky patterns, Jolly Rogers, stripes, and argyle on Wacky Sock Wednesday, but the creativity really shines with the personal embellishments the members add. The Columbus mat has seen FXB Cheerleader socks with pom-pom hair, “I Love Burpees” appliques, butterflies, and even the face of our very own Mr. Farrell included in the sock celebration.
And on days that the socks just aren’t wacky enough, the Columbus students are always willing to swap-a-sock for a little extra pizazz! Wacky socks are perfect for kickboxing day. It is always a great time gathering up for the group sock photo then seeing those wild colors fly through the air and rock the heavy bags.
What is it about the wacky socks that keep them coming back week after week, session after session? Some students say the socks make them kick harder and faster. Some say they raise the classes' spirits and increase the energy level. But the secret behind the wacky socks is no secret at all. It's community. It's sharing. It's one more tangible bond among people with a common goal of health, transformation, and high quality of life. It's teammates and friends encouraging one another, pushing one another, and reaching goals together. It's what Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping is all about.
We hope you'll visit FXB Columbus the next time you find yourself in Indiana. Bring your wackiest socks and be a welcomed part of our Columbus Farrell's family some Wednesday. If you forget your wacky socks, chances are there will be a smiling face happy to lend you a pair, and they might
even be clean!
