Before joining CFU, I used to go to the gym and do random exercises to target the parts of my body I didn’t like. In addition to going to the gym, I would run for hours at a steady pace. I wasn’t losing weight, I wasn’t gaining muscle, and to make matters worse, I was getting injured from the constant pounding on my joints. I knew I had to find another way to reach my goals which, seemed to get further away with every mile I ran and every hour I spent in the gym.
When I first met Mike and JoJo, I knew they would be the perfect coaches to help me overcome these obstacles. I quickly began to progress in the gym as my strength increased and my body fat decreased. I began to reach goals that I had been trying to reach for years with the guidance of Mike and JoJo. The coaches spent hours of their time advising me on my nutrition, CrossFit movements, and quite honestly my life.
The physical accomplishments I have made are not the only aspects of my life that CFU has improved. The community has become my family and everyday I look forward to seeing them during my training sessions. We laugh together, cry together, and support each other every day at CFU. Mike and JoJo make CFU a place where every person of every ability can feel that they are important and, can accomplish any goal they set. I am so proud to say that I have been a part of this community for five years, the people at this gym and CrossFit in general, have brought fulfillment and meaning to my life.
