My Crossfit journey began in June 2012 all thanks to my mother! While watching tv, my dad turned to ESPN and a replay of the 2011 Crossfit Games happened to be on, I thought ‘Wow, this is pretty cool’ and decided do some research. After several weeks of talking about wanting to give it a try but being way to chicken to actually reach-out to schedule a trial, my mother decided she would do it on my behalf while I was away at a conference. The day I returned she informed me that the next evening I had my trial session. Oh man was I a nervous wreck! The last time I consistently worked out had been close to 8 years prior while I was a varsity track athlete in high school. Following my first session there was no turning back, I was hooked and have been hooked ever since.
Crossfit changed my life, not only am I a more fit person, but I’m also so much more confident! I now know that if I put in the time and effort great things will happen and I’m so glad my mother made that call and that I stepped in to the box that first night!
