I was introduced to CrossFit by attending the 2017 CrossFit Games to cheer on an athlete from my family. It was exhilarating to be in an environment where everyone shared a passion for fitness. I felt a spark and a connection to the community. The feeling stuck, leading me to join CrossFit a few months later. It was a match.
I CrossFit because…I thrive in an environment that is competitive yet encouraging – where the people around me make me want to be better. The accountability of scheduled class times, the opportunity to learn from experienced coaches and athletes, and having “teammates” has helped my fitness stay consistent. My progress and results have been measurable and invigorating. CrossFit fosters the habit of facing daily challenges with maximum effort and that mentality carries over into a lifestyle in a powerful way.
