Tell us about your fitness journey?

I was always an athlete growing up, so I rarely had to go to a gym. I played field and ice hockey in college, which is where I was introduced to some free weight movements. Once college ended, I figured I had to stay in shape somehow and I joined Planet Fitness. I liked it, but I hated trying to figure out what to do every day. I wanted to try Crossfit because it seemed like I would enjoy the structure and planned workouts.

How has your fitness changed since joining CFTB?

I can actually see muscle tone in my arms and back, which is hard to do on your own when you don’t know what you’re doing!

Favorite memory at CFTB?

Holiday WODS! – It’s hard to pick just one memory. I love the family I’ve made through CFTB.

Any advice for new members or people thinking about trying Cross Fit?

If you don’t enjoy planning your gym routine, Crossfit is the way to go. Plus, it’s only an hour class! I love just showing up and having a plan for the workout laid out for me. As a bonus, there are coaches who know what they’re talking about in regards to form and movements.
