My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I thought P90x/globo gyms and running was the answer until I had the opportunity to attend a level 1 cert. Every since then I have been hooked and it has totally captured mine along with my wife's perspective of fitness. We will forever be grateful and never look back. We are looking forward from here on out.
