“Let me tell you about Crossfit!” For one year I’ve been doing Crossfit and I love it. I started Crossfit October last year after some of my friends started at another gym. For months I had been trying all kinds of diets and home video programs and none of them were able to keep me on track. I was 21 years old, weighed about 250, and couldn’t run more than a block without getting winded.
I decided to finally give Crossfit a chance. My first class had runs, push-ups, and ended with a squat tabata. I was sore for days, but I had found what I needed. Crossfit gave me structure, the attention I needed, and the great positive atmosphere to push me. As the months passed, I started getting better and better. Coaches Katie and Charlie helped to push me past limits I thought would destroy me. My first front squats barely passed 100 lbs., and just recently I passed 300 lbs!!
Now one year later, I’m in the best shape of my life. I have the confidence to finally tear off my shirts. At least once a week I run into someone who asks me how I lost so much weight. I simply respond Crossfit and never giving up! The butterball is gone and beast mode is here to stay!
