Do you remember the day when you first fell in love with crossfit? Perhaps the first time you did a clean and jerk, or maybe it was when you attended your first class with a group of supportive and like-minded individuals. Whatever the reason, you are now obsessed with crossfit. You talk about it all the time, read about it constantly, and even dream about it. If you’re looking for something that will take your love of crossfit to the next level, I have just the thing for you.

Slaveholding: Weighed in the Balance of Truth by Charles Fitch is a book that is just as relevant to the world of lifting weights as it is to the history of slavery. Despite the title, the book is not necessarily about slaveholding; rather, it is a passionate and thought-provoking argument against slavery from a moral and religious standpoint. The book is essentially a compilation of several sermons that Fitch delivered in the mid-nineteenth century, in which he argued that slavery was inherently sinful and should be abolished immediately.

So, you might be wondering, what does this have to do with lifting weights? Well, here’s the thing: reading Slaveholding will change your perspective on the world as a whole, and the world of fitness in particular. It will challenge you to think about the larger implications of what you do in the gym, and how that relates to the rest of society. It will force you to ask difficult questions about what it means to be strong, healthy, and fit in a world where strength, health, and fitness are often equated with power, privilege, and control.

Perhaps most importantly, reading Slaveholding will inspire you to use your strength and fitness for something greater than yourself. It will remind you that your physical capabilities are not just a reflection of your own dedication and hard work, but also of the opportunities and privileges that you have been given in life. It will challenge you to consider how you can use your strength to lift up those who are weaker, rather than to dominate or exploit them.

In short, Slaveholding is a book that will change your perception about lifting weights forever. It will make you a better person, a better athlete, and a better member of society. If you’re ready to take your crossfit obsession to the next level, I highly recommend that you give it a read.

So, what did you think of this post? Have you read Slaveholding? If not, are you interested in checking it out? And, more importantly, what did you do in the gym today? Were you inspired to put a little extra effort into your workout, now that you have a renewed sense of purpose and motivation?
