This is where we like to brag a little about our amazing athletes. Commitment, consistency and hard work pays off!
I’ve always been active with fitness. However, when the doctor wanted to put me on blood pressure pills I knew I needed to try something else. The gym wasn’t for me, so CrossFit it was.
The moment I walked into Fidelis I got a good feeling. Everybody was so nice and welcoming from the trainers to the members. I just felt like part of a big family right away.
The change in myself has been unbelievable. In less than 3 months, my body changed so much my mom didn’t recognize me when I went home for the holidays. Not only that. I’ve never felt better! It’s crazy.
I would recommend this for anybody no matter your size or fitness level.
I have made CrossFit part of my benefits that I offer my employees. My company pays the fee as long as the employee attends, if they miss a class they get payroll deducted. I want to see my employees happy and healthy, especially if they are willing to do it. I am more than happy to help them! We now have three of us training & we encourage each other every day.
Today marks my one-year of CrossFit. This time last year I redeemed an online deal that my wife bought for me. I don’t want to be cliché and say it has been life changing, but it has . . . not only for the working out aspect, but our diets have dramatically improved. CrossFit has become a big part of our everyday life and at times is tough trying to balance between family/work/life but luckily I have an amazing wife.
The physical results that I have seen over the past year have been amazing as well. I was pretty weak when I started CrossFit (not afraid to admit that), but I feel like I have gotten a lot stronger both physically and mentally. For numbers, when I first started I could barely clean 65# and now I can clean upwards of 235#
Below is the obligatory bathroom selfie from when I first started last January to now. I have always been a slim guy, but CrossFit has allowed me to bulk up and tone my body a bit. I still have a ways to go and a lot of goals I have not yet met so hopefully I have more gains in my future! Thanks to Fidelis and Coach Pete as well for helping me from the beginning to now.
