I came to CrossFit because my aunt and uncle were doing it and it sounded like a cool idea. When I walked through the door for the first time I was about to walk right back out. The thoughts going through my head ranged from “What in the crap are these people doing” to “Okay I’ll never be able to do this”. I was very intimidated to say the least.
As time went on I became less and less intimidated and more and more comfortable. I realized the people there were just like me. I am working on pushing myself to be the best I can be.
I’ve had several big achievements at CrossFit. They can happen almost every day. I don’t have one favorite big achievemet. Honestly, all are my favorites because each one makes me equally proud of myself.
I have so many memories at CrossFit 2311, and all of them involve my CrossFit family. This past year I went through the hardest thing I have ever went through. I ended up going through a divorce and there were days I didn’t want to get out of bed. But everyone at 2311 embraced me. They consistently checked on me to make sure I was ok. Without these people being in my life I would be in a very different dark place.
I had something for just me. Something I did to make me happy. 2311 is more than a gym or a place to go workout, it’s a family. One I’m very blessed to be a part of.
