Joining CF has been life-changing for me. At first, I was quite intimidated. Not only had I never participated in group fitness before, but everyone seemed to already know one another. I thought I was going to feel left out. But this mentality quickly dissipated during and after summer Hero Week. I bonded with some awesome CFers who cheered me on when I thought I couldn’t go any further. Those 8 days provided me with the motivation and determination to keep improving, not only with my fitness but in my personal life as well.
