My husband had heard about Crossfit and really wanted to try a class. I was reluctant to go as it was so intimidating but went with him and was hooked. I loved seeing the women in class who pushed each other in a positive way to be stronger and healthier. They were bulky “meatheads” they were like me – I told him I wanted to be like them. After about a year we decided to get certified because our box didn’t have a kids program and we have 2 sons. We wanted them to have a place they could workout in and learn to love being healthy and fit. It has been amazing to see them grow and all the kids we have helped along the way. My favorite thing is watching kids and adults we coach learn something new and surprise themselves with their new skill. A lot of times they say “I can’t” and when they overcome the doubt and achieve it the joy on their face is priceless. Just knowing that I had a small part in helping them to achieve it makes it all worth it.
