HOW LONG HAVE YOU DONE CROSSFIT AND WHAT MADE YOU TRY IT OUT  I started 1 ½ years ago wanting to get in better shape. If I was going to pay that much for membership, I made sure to fit my 3x/week in my schedule. Besides vacations, I have only missed my 3x goal twice.

WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT CROSSFIT AT FIRST

Survival. I was the last to finish in almost all workouts the first year, but just kept moving and saw small improvements.

DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT CROSSFIT AND HOW IT HAS        IMPACTED YOUR LIFE

2 things keep me coming back……I love the mental challenge of initially thinking I could never do that WOD, taking it one chunk at a time, and feeling the accomplishment at the end…..and I love the people. I learn so much from all of you, and you inspire me a ton!!

FAVORITE WORKOUT

Something heavy with breaks

Like clusters WODs at Lifto

FAVORITE MOVEMENT

  Love bench press; wall balls and C&J

 HOW LONG HAVE YOU DONE CROSSFIT AND WHAT MADE YOU TRY IT OUT

I've been doing crossfit for about 2.5 years I think. An old band mate turned me onto it

WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT CROSSFIT AT FIRST

> I just remember my legs feeling like jello after my first WOD and really enjoying that style of workout compared to the boring gym stuff I'd been previously accustomed to. You could say I was hooked right away

DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT CROSSFIT AND HOW IT HAS IMPACTED YOUR LIFE
 The workouts are meditative for me. During a tough WOD all the everyday crap I worry about goes away for a few min. The community and folks at Top Gun CF are also amazing and inspire me to become a better athlete.
