AUGUST MEMBER HIGHLIGHT – MEET RENEE!

Renee has been doing CrossFit at CrossFit Slipstream for almost 2 years!  The secret to her success has been consistently going to class 2-3 times a week.   Read more about Renee below:

1.Why did you decide to try CrossFit?

I have always been doing some sort of activity such as running, biking, waterskiing, hiking, cross country skiing,  just not as consistent as I should be. My husband Tom became involved about a year and half prior to me joining. Based on his positive experience I thought I could give it a try and besides it was something we could do together.

2. How has having a coach changed your workout or fitness results?

Since doing CrossFit I’ve had my fastest results in 5k’s.  I believe the one on one instruction and the challenging WOD motivates you to push yourself beyond your limitations. Each CrossFit workout is a challenge but so rewarding after. ( not the soreness though)

3. How had doing CrossFit affected your health and/or life?

Since starting CrossFit almost 2 years ago, I feel considerably better, both physically and mentally. If I don’t work out for a week I feel lousy and more sluggish. It has taught me to live a more balanced life. CrossFit has taught me it’s all about the effort you put in. I am not one that can motivate and push myself like I do  when I go to the gym. It’s also nice to have the classes scaled to each individual’s ability and I like the supportive team work everyone gives each other.
