Here is a personal story from one of our Members from last year! Her first Open experience.

When it was suggested to me last year that I register for the 2015 Crossfit Open my initial thought was “why”? Why should I register when I am not a competitive athlete, I’m not going to qualify for regionals or go to the games so why bother? With a little gentle nudging  I did register and complete all the 2015 Open workouts, although all scaled WOD’s. And let me tell you I am so happy I did.

 

This is why:

·         I now have a baseline to measure my performance for the next year so I know where my weaknesses & strengths are (always work in progress!)

·         My althletic self esteem went up several notches

·         My coaches & fellow box members cheered me on even when I didn’t want to finish (lots of high-fives too!)

·         It was fun! The energy and excitement in the gym was great

 

Crossfit has changed my perspective, I am more comfortable in my body now than ever before. I never really exercised regulary prior to Crossfit  but now when I WOD & lift weights I feel empowered and free. Everytime I go to the box I am happy I did, I never regret it.  Bring on the 2016 Open.”
