I actually had been reading a lot about it [CrossFit] and walked by one day, on a Sunday, and I was going to see if anyone was there but it looked like it was closed, so I walked away. Rob Gutierrez, one of the owners, actually chased me down the block and engaged me in a conversation about it and told me to come in for a couple of trial classes the next week. I came in three days in a row, loved it, and I’ve been doing it ever since. It’ll be three years this July.
Just try it, I know it sounds really intimidating. But, when you do it, it’s fun. Everybody’s really supportive. It’s a great environment.
Overall, within a year, I lost about 26 pounds and a lot inches and a lot of body fat. And I felt like I really got into, like, great shape…It is a way of life, it has fully become a way of life. Everything. CrossFit, my diet, has fully been incorporated into my lifestyle.
Since joining CrossFit my cholesterol has gone down 50 points!
