Matt has been a member at CrossFit Slipstream for over a year now!  He’s always smiling and happy.  We love having him as part of our community!  Read what Matt has to say about CrossFit below:

1.Why did you decide to try CrossFit?

I was initially weary about joining a CrossFit gym. What I understood of it was that it involved weights and high intensity. This sounded like a great way to get in shape, but I was concerned it may cause injuries and that it was geared more for people in their 20’s. Interested, I came to a couple guest nights to try it out. The workouts were great. I decided to join to see what it was like. Right away, Jon asked if I had any injuries and mobility issues. He was also very conscious about form and preventing injury. The required onboarding was great because it gave a good flavor of what the workouts would be like and taught proper form to avoid injury. After that, it was a matter of reaching the goals I set for myself.

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

The consults have been useful to help me keep on track in a reasonable and well-rounded, accountable manner. They make for a great opportunity to reflect and ensure I am making good decisions all around in my life.

3. How has CrossFit affected your life/health?

I can certainly tell more balance in my muscles and my joints feel more stable. I do a lot of endurance activities and swam in high school and college. This made a lot of my muscle groups uneven in strength, which can, and was starting to cause some issues. The symptoms are now gone, but I know I need to continue working at it.

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

Bite the bullet and go to a guest day or two. It is really fun and you can get in some really great workouts. Be honest and upfront about any injuries or mobility issues you have. They will make accommodations to ensure you do not hurt yourself.

I heard about CrossFit from a friend.

I tried it because its hard work, not pretend.

Having a CrossFit coach has changed my workouts in a number of ways.

AMRAPS, Metcons, and rounds for time sometimes makes my muscles sore for days.

But don’t you worry one little bit,

Jon is a stickler on form to keep you injury free and fit.

CrossFit has changed my health for the better. This you should trust;

my muscles are more balanced and joints more robust.

If you care about fitness, I suggest you try CrossFit. It’s  like a family. It’s like a team.
