javierWhen i started going to to BCF (Basin CrossFit) my goal was simple, lose weight, and be a little more healthy. I walked in weighing 245lbs. I couldn’t do a pull up, also back and front squats were out of the question. After my first day of air squats with Fabien the following weeks I was so sore, I couldn’t sit, and barely do much. But that didn’t stop me from going back, and doing what I could fighting through the soreness. As the soreness went away, the workouts got harder, But Jarret, Jeff and Fabien kept pushing me, everyone at the gym pushed each other. 7 months later, Im at 205lbs my clean is 215 my back squat is 275lbs, and needless to say, i can do a pull up, as well as muscle ups. I gained muscle, and strength, but more than that, I also gained a family. BCF taught me to push myself to my max, then to keep going. never showing that I’m tired. I’m in the best shape of my life, and still going strong.
