For roughly 6 years I tried to live with being more sedentary and cautious about activities afraid of further injuring or living in pain. This was until a friend of mine suggested I give CrossFit a try.
I purchased a Groupon with the intention of trying out a few classes to see if I could even figure out any of the movements. Instantly I was hooked. I made them aware of my mobility issues and over the last year they have worked with me to gain strength, balance and mental toughness to overcome my barriers. I have learned to squat, do a crap load of pull-ups, and, I ran a 7:12 mile. I can only see positive gains in my future.
Not only have they given me back the physical gains I so badly wanted, they also brought me into this community that is there for you no matter what. They see you at your best, at your worst and all along they encourage, motivate and lift you up which only motivates you to work to your greatest potential.
