I will never forget the first time coming to a CF class. I remember thinking “this isn’t working out” and this isn’t for me. But by then it was too late. A fire had been lit on the inside, my natural instinct to continue the fight with an obvious weakness had kicked in, so I came back. I was more of a drop in athlete for many years until last year at the All out in Berks challenge. Even after being gone and training at other CrossFit gyms I knew that with all the warm welcomes and a few hugs that Corps Fitness was my home and I needed to come back. So its been almost one year and I love it. We are a family. We train together, eat together, share in our achievements, and receive help with our weaknesses. CF is my home and will be for as long as possible.
If I can share one thing with anyone in regards to training it would be: Never give up, even after you fall or fail, keep showing up and continue to put in work because one day its going to pay off.
