What brought you to CrossFit?
Curiosity. A few guys from work have been doing CrossFit for years and had nothing but good things to say about it. I have been "that guy" that signs a year membership at a regular gym and don't go for more than 3 weeks. I wanted to see how exercising can be so much fun and rewarding that I would make it part of my life.
What was your first impression?
Very different and intense, but fun, and the environment is amazing. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, no matter how long they have been doing it for, it makes you feel like you belong. Finishing last? everyone will be there cheering for you until you finish.
How has that impression changed?
I can say that I understand why everyone that does CrossFit talks so highly about it, and now I'm one of them. Every day is a different workout, a different challenge, a different goal.
What was your best day at CrossFit?
When I realized that I can do strict pull-ups. I know it sounds simple but it was always something I tried at every gym. A few months into CrossFit I found myself doing 8 strict pull-ups!! amazing...
What are some of your accomplishments?
I have accomplished to always say yes to my kids when they want to play, run, bike or anything. I can confidently say I am in the best shape I have ever been, and getting better day after day.
What are your new goals?
Kipping, in all the different movements that I can use them, elusive but I will get there.
What do you love most about CFNAC?
Their community, from the members to the coaches. Everyone is amazing!!
