"I know that I don't have to roll out of bed in pain, which I was doing prior to CrossFit."

In 2014 I took a trip to Bryce, Zion, and Grand Canyon National Park to go hiking with my good friend Crystal.  For two months prior  I started exercising to get in better shape but it was the toughest trip that I have ever taken.  I was frustrated that my cardio just wasn’t there.  I did all of the hiking and activity but I was last all but one day and it really was disapointing for me even though it was a beautiful, great trip.

My friend Crystal was already doing CrossFit so she asked me if I was interested in trying.  I had fears and doubts because I had heard her stories of flipping tires and lifting weights and I didn’t want to look like a body builder.  Since then I have learned that strength training is a critical part of building overalle health.

I took a hike to house mountian a few weeks ago and I can tell a great difference in how I could climb the mountain.  I wasn’t feeling winded and was strong enough to make it up the mountain despite having a torn meniscus.  CrossFit has also helped me know that I won’t have to roll out of bed in pain.  I also learned I had sleep apnea from CrossFit because here recovery is a priority. I love the CFK community.  I’ve really enjoyed this journey.  The coaches meet you where you are and don’t make you worried about competing with others but improving myself.
