For years I called myself a runner. I loved running and I still love running. However, miles of pounding pavement and 4 nights a week in the gym doing curls or bench pressing started to get a little boring. Joe (my husband) and I decided to try something new when we kept hearing about CrossFit and how it has changed peoples lives. I didn’t think I would like a class setting – I imagined it would be people standing around, gossiping, not really doing a whole lot of work. I sure was wrong about that! Once we started CrossFit, we never looked back. Our running mileage went down but our race times kept getting faster. A little while went by and I was able to do a pull-up – A PULL-UP!! I never would have imagined doing a pull-up – EVER. And that was just the beginning. We continued to get stronger, we built lasting friendships with our classmates and found the excitement and community that CrossFit offers to be a very important part of our lives.
There are many things to like about CrossFit. There is nothing like the community of a group of people, all working together to improve their lives. The confidence that you will gain when you are able to get stronger and faster transfers into your daily life. Also, the workouts are fun and always changing.
I enjoy training because it is so rewarding to help others set and meet goals and to watch them become the best person they can be. We strive to make our facility a positive place where anyone can come to workout for whatever their reason may be: to become a better athlete, a better mom or dad, or simply to lose a couple of pounds.
