Tell us about your fitness journey:  I was always into fitness and I went to regular gyms to stay fit but I never liked it that much. My Business partner told me about CF and I went with him to a local CrossFit gym. I liked it right away and then chose CrossFit Thoroughbreds as my home gym because they paid so much attention to my form. I am going back to Germany every summer for about 3 months and I’m joining a CF over there as well.

and I’m joining a CF over there as well.

How has your fitness journey changed since joining CFTB? My overall fitness became much better and I was able to build up my strength. I became a much better Mountain biker as well.

Favorite memory at CFTB: No specific memory, I like my people from the 8am class and we are having a lot of fun every day.

Any advice for new members or people thinking about trying CrossFit: Just try it, I think everyone can do it, doesn’t matter what your fitness level is. It’s not only a sport it’s a great community.
