NOVEMBER MONTHLY HIGHLIGHT – MEET JUAN!

Juan has been a member at CrossFit Slipstream for over a year!  He’s always smiling no matter how hard the workout is.   Juan has been challenging himself to do more and more in the gym so that he can be prepared to do a CrossFit competition.  Read what Juan has to say about CrossFit below:

1.Why did you decide to try CrossFit?

About 2 years ago, I rented a paint shop across the street from CrossFit Slipstream. I drove past the gym every day and saw the crossfitters running down the street for their workouts. I was curious and decided to give it a try.

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

I would never push myself this hard without a coach guiding me. Having prescribed workouts has helped me in every aspect of my fitness. I know the proper form for each lift and movement which is so important for being able to increase my weights and reps safely. I feel challenged and supported every time I come in for a workout.

3. How has CrossFit affected your life/health?

The main physical difference is that I have gained more muscle overall. I have been able to maintain my increased fitness and body composition by attending workout regularly. I notice that I feel happy and in a better mood overall when I commit to two or three workouts a week. I feel good, like I have accomplished something in commitment to my health and well-being. I love the feeling I get after finishing a really intense workout.

4. What would you say to someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit?

Just come and try it. The coaches are so supportive. We all started as the new guy, so we all understand what it is like to be learning the movements. Make a commitment to your health and make the workouts a priority for a few times a week. With consistency, you will start seeing results and improvements in your fitness.
