Yesterday’s first Oly Class of the Program was great. It was great having my bud Jake, the fella that introduced me to CrossFit, and his wife Jay in for a visit. We saw most participants get PRs on Snatch and C & J after only 3 hours of instruction. I can’t wait to see the improvements you guys are going to experience in the next four weeks! I also want to formaly welcome Olivia and Noah R. to CFW. They just joined CFW and enrolled straight into the Oly Program. It’s going to be exciting to watch them develop their Lifts! Thanks to everyone who enrolled!
First of all, I want to say thanks to Tony & Julie. If it wasn’t for the two of you I would probably not be a part of this wonderful CFW family. But it was actually Viggo who drew me to Crossfit in the first place. My husband Chris told me that I had to come to his new gym to see the huge puppy. All I heard was puppy. I really had no interest in a gym or weightlifting! The only reason I decided to try it out was because it is something my husband loved.
I will be the first to admit that my first couple of months here I did not give it my all. It just seemed impossible for someone like me to go in there and do those workouts with everyone else. After seeing your name at the bottom day after day, who wouldn’t want to give up?
It wasn’t until a couple months ago that I started taking Crossfit serious for myself. It was a workout you had to run 400m, then do kettle bell swings. I was almost finished but all I wanted to do was give up. Everyone else was done and I was the last one still working out. Julie came up to me and got serious with me. She gave me the pep talk of my life!
She told me that I needed to put forth a real effort or I was just wasting my time. After the workout, she helped outline a diet for me. After seeing how amazing its all worked for Emily and everyone else, I decided it was time for me to really get started.
I immediately began seeing results and I now enjoy doing the workouts!
I realized it didn’t matter if my time was as good as the other girls. When other people started noticing how good it was making me look and feel, I thought "this is working!".
Crossfit has made such an impact my life. I feel healthier, I look healthier, becuase I am healthier! If I can do more, anyone can do more.
Thank you Josh, Darren & Dawn!! Words can not express how grateful I am for all of you guys. I feel I am a better Crossfitter because of you guys. Debbie, Meredith, Colleen, Jess, Clark, Matt, Clair, Megan, Thomas, Amy, Emily, really everyone who I have had the pleasure of working out with, I say thanks. Having you guys encouraging me not to stop really makes me push hard. I love our crew and hope to meet more CrossFitter during the summer!
