CrossFit has changed my life and given me confidence. Until I started CrossFit I was been confident about my physical abilities or my appearance. I now look at WODs and think, “this is going to be hard, but I can do this” instead of “f@#& my life, I cant do this”. That feels great. As for my appearance, my t-shirts are starting to get tight in the chest and shoulders instead of the stomach. Looking in the mirror and noticing that the first time, gave me a huge confidence boost.
The past month has been full of CrossFit accomplishments, but I think what I am most proud of, would have to be my improvement in running. It was not long ago, that a single lap around the building was a struggle. Being able to run multiple laps without stopping to walk now is huge for me. My personal goal of not whining whenever running is in the WOD is very close to being achieved.
My favorite part of CrossFit is without doubt, the people I work out with and the coaching. I know I would not be where I am right now without them. There have been times that I have been 99% sure that my heart is going to explode during a workout. Without my peers motivating me and my coach telling me “that I am going to be OKAY” (thank you Amber) I would not have made it this far.
I have been an on again-off again member of RCR for a number of years now. I went through a unfortunate cycle of working out for a few months, then injuring myself, over and over again. I finally figured out that the injury’s were due to my lack of mobility. I now try to stretch every day and have noticed a big difference in and out of the gym.
I cant wait to see what the future of RCR has in store for me. I am looking forward to the rest of my life being the healthiest years of my life.
Thank you RCR!
