“Am I as fit as I want to be? No. Am I as young as I once was? No. Do I want to have an active, vibrant life? Yes! I had been curious about CrossFit as a way to obtain better fitness but I was apprehensive as I had always heard about how competitive gyms are and how often people were being pushed to the point of injury, I didn’t want to be nursing injuries as I already had bad knees.
A friend told my wife and me about CrossFit 403 and we went to a trial class. The group we worked out with was warm and welcoming, and the coach, Angie, was patient and provided great guidance to us newbies. We decided to give the gym a go and met with the owner/coach, Heather, for multiple hours of demonstration, evaluation, and preparation. Heather provided the foundation for doing the exercises with proper form and within our limits. I have been going now for the past 3.5 months and have met some pretty awesome people. I do my best to get to 5 classes a week and never worry about who is the coach, as all the coaches have been amazing, helpful and very knowledgeable. I am always looking forward to going to class because no matter what time I go, the other members are friendly, encouraging and non-judgmental. Whether I can or can not do a prescribed weight or movement, my fellow CrossFit family members only care that I give it my best.
Since joining, my personal fitness has improved, my desire to do better on each and every exercise is increasing, my range of motion and flexibility has improved and better yet, my circle of friends has grown. Heather, Regan, Ryan, Angie, Josh, Steve F, Steve H, Kim, Lee, Alicia, Brittany, Max, and Erin, thanks for welcoming me to the CrossFit 403 family!”
