Why did you decide to try CrossFit?

I decided to do CrossFit because I like challenges and I was sure CrossFit was a perfect fit for me and my fitness goals. I started at a gym 2 years ago but I wanted to try something to push me more. One day, I saw a video on Youtube about CrossFit. Immediately I began to look for a box to visit and I found one in St. Paul. I was a little scared when I went; I was not sure what CrossFit was but learned each movement could be adapted to everyone so nothing to worry! CrossFit is definitely for everyone.  

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

CrossFit is the best workout that I have ever done in my life. I think CrossFit has everything an athlete is looking for: mobility, endurance, resistance, helps improve muscle strength and achieve your goals in less time, plus it’s fun. If you are consistent, have a good nutrition plan and rest enough, you will see the change in your body. In our box, the coaches are very professional, they will do their best to help you achieve your goals and improve each movement. 

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

Since I started doing CrossFit 4 months ago my life changed completely. I have more motivation to do anything in my life. I have more strength, more energy, I sleep better, and the benefits are incalculable. 

What is your favorite CrossFit movement?

My favorite movement is Toes to bar (it was very hard in the beginning but it’s better now). Patient and consistency is the key! 

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

I strongly recommend CrossFit to everyone who likes challenges. It will improve your mental and physical health. You will see results faster if you are consistent, eat healthy and rest.
