We have seen a lot of new faces around the lab these days, and I wanted to take a minute and share my story. The simplest way to describe my story is “I’ve Been There”.
I started CrossFit on the training bar with tires on the bar.
I could’t do a double under…singles were alright
I hated running…hated burpees and my 10 factorial time was horrendous
I didn’t know how to kip, butterfly or perform more than one strict pullup
I threw up on several occasions
I wanted to quit CrossFit
But the people around me wouldn’t let me stop.
They wanted to know where I was and when I would be back
So I kept coming back.
It took me almost 2 years to get a muscle-up.
It took me another year to feel confident in my lever.
I spent a year interning to be a coach.
I can now do 200 consecutive double unders.
I can deadlift over 300#, clean over 200# and snatch my body weight.
I can walk on my hands and love handstand pushups
But more than any of my accomplishments and progress, I love coaching. I love helping you reach your goals and getting where you want to be. But remember, it takes time. It doesn’t happen overnight. It is a huge process. I know it’s hard at times…I’ve been there!
