Member Highlight – Meet Saron!

1. Why did you decide to try CrossFit?

I wanted to try CrossFit because I knew going to conventional gyms just didn’t work for me. I could never stay motivated to keep going and the variety that CrossFit offers was really appealing to me.

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

Having a CrossFit coach has really helped me stay motivated and really focus on my form and progress. I know that if I do it right and I give my best, I will always keep getting better. And the coaches at Slipstream see it too and are so encouraging about it, it keeps me going.

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

It’s shown me how much more physically capable I am than I thought. There was a time when doing burpees were difficult for me, now I can handle it. There was a time wall-balls weren’t necessarily my favorite, now I can handle them with more weight. It’s easy to tell yourself that maybe you’re not the type of person who works out or goes to the gym and you can go on believing it. But doing CrossFit has changed my mindset in that I am capable, as long as I keep trying. I think that’s a good mindset to have both in and outside of CrossFit.

4. What is your favorite CrossFit movement?

Deadlifts…they just make me feel like a badass

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

Just do it! It may seem intimidating but, you’re more capable than you think.
