Member Highlight – Meet Chris

Why did you decide to try CrossFit?
I moved to the St. Paul area after graduating college and was looking to get back into a regular fitness routine. I had tried CrossFit during the summer between my Sophomore and Junior year and liked the results, so I chose to find a gym near me.

How is having a CrossFit coach changed your workout or fitness results?
I have tried previously to workout on my own in a regular gym setting and found it hard to find variety and motivation in myself to keep going. Having a coach and a group of peers to help push me has helped me get faster results then I would be able to do on my own. It also keeps me accountable for constantly coming to class week after week.

How has doing CrossFit affected your health and/or life?
Exercising regularly has also lead to me having better eating habits. I participate in Downhill Mountain Bike races during the summer and I think CrossFit has helped with my fitness and has shown better results. Overall I feel better and my Grandma has even said that my cheeks look less chubby so that is an added bonus.

What is your favorite CrossFit movement?
I would say the Clean is my favorite, but really anything but Burpees.

What would you say to someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit?
I would say come give it a try. I like how the workouts are all scalable to everyone’s ability level and the coaches do a good job of pushing you the right amount. If they are looking to make improvements to their health I think CrossFit is a great way to start.
