I had been going to a gym and running, but these activities had gotten kind of stale. I didn’t feel very excited to do them and therefore wasn’t going as often as I wanted to. I was looking for something new to get me excited about fitness again.

I was initially drawn to CrossFit since it reminded me of some of the community I had in the military with fitness -pushing each other, the competition, and the camaraderie.

Honestly, I was very nervous before our first few classes. I do not like going outside of my comfort zone and trying new things

On August 20, 2011, I stepped into my first CrossFit box, and it honestly changed my life.

I felt motivated to keep coming back because no one was judging me – they were all pushing me to do my best no matter how slow I was at movements or running.

The best workout I can do is one where I am pushing myself, whether or not it is scaled or I finish every rep. I realized fitness isn’t all-or-nothing, but made by progress every day.

Before CrossFit I was a member at a traditional gym trying out classes or doing my own thing and never really getting into it. I would always come up with excuses to not go or get discouraged because I never felt like I was getting any results.
