Crossfit Fig at 5:00 pm
A friend had been trying to get me to try it. One day at the grocery store I bent down to tie my shoe and realized I couldn't without contorting my body. That is when I decided to make some changes.
My friend Melissa was the first person I knew that did CrossFit® and she helped me get started at FIG. My on-ramp wod was 21-15-9 of KB swings and burpees. It was rough.
I had always dabbled in working out on and off. When I started CrossFit® I was doing nothing but RX'ing sitting on the couch. Walking even a 1/2 mile gave me so much pain at that point.
I 100% love CrossFit®, my box, my coaches, and my community. I used to dread going and once or twice in the beginning never got out of my car to go in. There are still days that paralyze me with fear but for the most part I'm proud that I do this at my age and the things I've accomplished, and still have yet to accomplish.
Empowerment! I believe in myself and the things I can do. I have more energy than I ever have in my life. I've lost over 50 pounds so far.
Hands down the community.
If I can do it, you can do it. It will change your life.
I'm a total book nerd.
