The Renatus Athletics Motto

Located in Hemet Ca, our facility is about fitness reborn. Our motto..

1. I will promise to do my best. My best will vary from day to day, from hour to hour, from minute to minute. But in that minute, I will do the very best that I can.

2. Lactic acid is my friend. The wind is my friend. Anything that opposes me is actually helping me to become stronger. If I had no opposition, I would be weak.

3. If I can run, I run. If I have to walk, I walk. When I am forced to crawl, I crawl. And then I rest and live to fight another day.

4. I fear no man but I fear my workout. If I don’t fear my workout, it isn’t hard enough.

5. I may puke. I may cry. But I will not quit. Ever.

6. I never cheat. There is no honor in cheating. What joy can there be in a victory I did not earn?

7. The workout missed is the opportunity missed. I will not cheat myself of the opportunity to become a better athlete and person.

8. I understand the value of the push-up, the pull-up, the sit-up, the squat, and the deadlift. Just as there are a million ways to make chicken, so too are there a million ways to squat, sit up, pull up, push up, and deadlift.

9. I will give everything I have. And then I will find more within myself.

10. I don’t complain. Complaining is for crybabies. There are 250 babies born every minute worldwide. I will leave the crying to them and I will soldier on.

11. I will bite off challenges, spit out results, and beg for more.

Combo 1

“I have been involved in the world of fitness since the age of 13. Prior to joining the USMC, I played high school football, wrestling, track, field, soccer, and trained in Muay Thai and boxing. After high school, I joined the USMC. During that time, I held the highest physical fitness awards for my infantry unit. It was not until 2011, when my high school friend, Neal Maddox, introduced me to the world of CrossFit. Neal invited me to the Home Depot Center to see him compete. At this time, I had no idea what this “CrossFit” thing was. All I knew was that my longtime friend is kicking ass and taking names. As soon as I walked into the Tennis Stadium and witnessed the Final Event, I finally understood what “CrossFit” was. I was immediately sold. I love CrossFit. I thank Neal for this life-changing experience. Anytime I see my buddy compete, I get emotional. I’ve seen where this guy came from when we were kids. To see CrossFit bring him where he is today…makes me very proud. I love CrossFit and the community that comes with. After getting into CrossFit, I introduced my wife and kids to the same experiences I was having. Now my wife loves CrossFit….sometimes more than me. I only have one regret….not starting CrossFit sooner.

I have everything I could ever ask for. My wife gives me the love and support I need to continue striving towards my goals. Without her, I would be lost. Now that my kids love CrossFit, I have it all (wife, 3 boys, house, and an awesome place to work everyday). I love changing lives. Neal once told me, “I get to do what I love. When I get to do what I love…it’s not work.”

Coach

“My name is Marcos Ortega. I’m an active duty marine, working as the assistant marine officer instructor at San Diego State University. My 15 years of service have taken me through a lot of training, which includes, combat conditioning, nutrition, and mental readiness. I started crossfitting to get away from the old treadmill, bi’s and tri’s training the marine corps pushes on us. I discovered CrossFit by watching videos and once I started at a real box, I was hooked.”
