Member Highlight – Meet Crystal!

1. Why did you decide to try CrossFit?
At the beginning of 2018, I was looking for a new fitness option.  I researched gyms near my home and Slipstream’s New You Challenge stood out as the best fit for me. I was able to ease into CrossFit with five other individuals who were also just starting out, so there was no intimidation factor. The nutrition component and the individualized attention also were very important for me.

2. How is having a CrossFit coach changed your workout or fitness results?
The coaches help me stay focused and accountable. I have some limitations due to previous ankle and leg injuries, and the coaches are spectacular at customizing the workouts so that I get the maximum results without getting frustrated by the things I can’t do.

3. How has doing CrossFit affected your health and/or life?
I joined the gym as a regular member after the Challenge ended, and I have been able to stay focused on my fitness goals by consistently doing the CrossFit workouts. This is a big win for me, and something I haven’t done consistently in many years. This is due to the fact that I enjoy the physical challenge of the workouts and the camaraderie of being a part of the Slipstream family. Also, I still utilize the nutrition tips and guidance from the New You Challenge—in fact, the food guide is still posted in my kitchen.

4. What is your favorite CrossFit movement?
For now, probably the front squat. It’s the movement where I have seen the most progress with both my form and the amount of weight I can lift.

5. What would you say to someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit?
Just try it! The New You Challenge is a great introduction to CrossFit and Slipstream. After the six weeks of the challenge, you will be hooked.
