I didn’t know I would like CrossFit . . . as a matter of fact I ignored it for over a year while my boyfriend was CrossFitting. He would talk about it ALL THE TIME, he would ALWAYS be SORE, and it seemed like he could never get enough. Having been an athlete since jr. high I just didn’t see the need for all those Olympic moves, insane WODs, nor paying those high monthly fees.
Since then, I discovered and fell in love with Fidelis CrossFit! Now I talk about it ALL the time, I’m always sore and I can’t get enough which is why I keep coming back for more. Before CrossFit, I was in a softball league, a sand volleyball league, belonged to a gym, and would do just about any bootcamp I could fit into my schedule. Now I can’t live without CrossFit! I have not given bootcamps a second thought and I would give up my leagues and gym membership before CrossFit.
I love the challenge to my body physically and mentally! I feel stronger and I’m doing things I didn’t know I could do! Strong has taken a new meaning that encompasses proper eating, resting, and workouts!
I’m grateful I started at Fidelis CrossFit because I walked into a very thorough explanation of what CrossFit was all about and what was expected as far as eating and goal setting! Like anything, you make it as successful and as fun as you want to and I went there with a thirst for learning and pushing myself to new limits. Five months later I’m still pushing for new limits!! Totally AWESOME. The coaches are super friendly and always ready to push and motivate each CrossFitter! The coaches and members of Fidelis CrossFit are quite diverse and makes for meeting new people quite fun! Day one at Fidelis, I knew no one and now I call many friend. Fidelis is a great box and you can be assured that you will find your place there, do not be shy, do not be intimidated, do not expect to be an elite CrossFitter in 6 months and do not be afraid to ask questions! One thing I can say is that egos and stereotypes are left at the door before each workout
