How long have you done crossfit and what made you try it out? Prior to joining Top Gun, I had done crossfit on my own for about 2.5 - 3 years during college. I had lost weight going vegan after succumbin to the "Freshman 15". Even though I lost weight, I didn't feel like I had gotten and fitter. I found Crossfit through the mainsite and attempted the daily WOD.
What were your thoughts about Crossfit at first? Wow, I am really out of shape, but dang this is fun! The challenge was addicting and left me wanting more. I was especially impressed by the gymastic-centric movements within many of the workouts.
Describe your favorite things about Crossfit and how it has impacted your life: How much time do we have? Other than continuing to lose body fat and becoming physically stronger, I absolutely love the constantly varying nature behind Crossfit; knowing that the workout changes everyday and there is no predictable pattern is very enjoyable and keeps exercise engaging. Coming from doing Crossfit individually, I also love the community aspect and being a part of an affiliate gym. The support around you on a daily basis and results you see and feel by far surpass anything achieved alone.
Favorite Workout: a nice, long chipper.
Favorite Movement: Dare I say Wall Balls?
