What or who got you started with crossfit?
My brother originally told me about CrossFit. He was working out at CrossFit San Diego and was seeing a lot of progress in his strenth and fitness levels. He encouraged me to give it a try. I went a few times and finally about a year ago made the commitment to do CrossFit full time.
How has crossfit changed you physically, and mentally?
I remember when I first started going to CrossFit Katy Neal told me "The first month you'll feel different, the second month you'll look different and the third month you are different". I couldn't wait to be different! Looking back to when he said that I can say I truly am different. Of couse I look different and I'm amazed at what my body is able to do, but at the same time without me knowing it my confidence has seriously increased. There isn't much I back down from these days.
I don't even know where to begin. I can't say enough about CrossFit and the CrossFit community. I get to come to the gym every day to a bunch of people with similar goals who support me and encourage me every single day. And it's not just in the gym. The way that the CrossFit community supports eachother outside the gym is even more amazing. I can't wait for another year to go by to see where I'm at. I've set some goals and with the encouragment of everyone and the most amazing coach (That's you Katie!) I'm confident I'll far surpass those goals. I look forward to supporting and encouraging all the people that have been encouraging me. Big thank you to all of you!
