MEMORABLE CROSSFIT EVENTS:
Every day at CrossFit sticks out in my mind! Training with good friends and hitting PR’s are always memorable! I will say it was pretty awesome doing Barbells for Boobs with my wife as my partner!
MORE ABOUT ME:
I started CrossFit after getting bored of going to the gym and getting on whatever machine was open and doing 3 sets of 10 here, 3 sets of 10 there, etc. My first WOD was a strength day of overhead squats….and I had NO idea what I was doing! I did Cindy the next day. I saw the WOD and thought, “This is going to be easy!” I think I died. I spent half of the workout lying on the floor trying not to puke and pass out. I was hooked!! It’s amazing to see where I began and compare it to where I am now, both in AND out of the gym. CrossFit molds people physically, mentally, and spiritually. It changes lives!
