Member Highlight – Meet Elliott R.

Why did you decide to try CrossFit?

I have tried several other gyms, kinds of exercise and doing things on my own without getting the results I wanted. I have friends who have done CrossFit and they always had good things to say about it. Slipstream is also close to home and seemed like a welcoming place, so I figured, why not?  

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

Having someone show me how to correctly and safely do different movements and also be there to set an expectation of what to do, has been incredibly helpful. I do much better when I don’t have to think about the workout and someone just tells me what to do. 

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

I definitely feel stronger and like I have more energy to do the things I need and want to do. I’ve lost weight and gained muscle and feel all around better. 

What is your favorite CrossFit movement?

I like the weighted carries because even though they sound easy enough, there’s a lot that goes into them and I can see how they all directly relate to everyday life.

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

Give it a try! The small group setting is so helpful in maintaining motivation and you can start at whatever level you’re at.
