How did you first get into CrossFit? How did it go?
I live nearby and had seen CFE, I was in horrible shape physically and mentally. I had no interest in going to a normal gym, I knew it would be hard but I thought I would give it a try.
My first WOD I had tears in my eyes and was exhausted, but everyone was so supportive and welcoming i knew I needed to come back.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CrossFit?
Everything is better mind, body and spirit. I feel much happier and focused. I am also very proud to say I do CrossFit because it is so challenging.
What impact has CrossFit had on your life?
It’s given me something outside of work that I enjoy. I am overwhelmed by the welcoming culture that CFE has! I really enjoy visiting with the other members and learning from the coaches.
