I got started in CrossFit after trying gym memberships and boot camps. My body wasn’t changing and I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I then started CrossFit and decided to switch to Basin after I assessed I needed more coaching. I thought if I was going to keep doing high intensity workouts at my age, I needed coaches who would keep me from hurting myself.
My husband keeps me motivated. It’s kind of hard to whine when he is riding his bike 40-60 miles a day. My starting goals were just to¬†get in better shape, now I’m focusing on my nutrition. My favorite CrossFit workouts are any of the weight training programs. CrossFit has changed my life. I now look at relationships in a positive way. I feel healthier and have more energy. I used to be a size 7 and now fit in a 1!! Even though my progress is slow, my husband encourages me and can tell a huge difference! I used to get very frustrated with what I couldn’t do compared to others. CrossFit has taught me to scale down and not be ashamed about it; to know where I am and work from there, not from where someone else is. You can not compare your progress to someone else’s.
