Throughout my life I’ve played more sports than I can name. I have always been looking for a new competition I can to participate in. When I saw the 2011 Crossfit Games I knew I found it. Immediately I was encouraged by the amazing levels of fitness and the sportsmanship the athletes showed toward one another.
That is the atmosphere that I was looking for and at exactly what CFPP demonstrates. Even before coming into CFPP I was a physically fit, but the great thing about it is that it never is easy. You push yourself to keep moving and no matter what your fitness level is when first starting, the “veterans”, struggle just as much. Crossfit challenges you to push your body to a point that it has never gone to before. The struggle isn’t too horrible when you are getting healthy, looking better, and have the rest of the Crossfitters motivating you.
Crossfit already has me eating healthier. Recently I had a talk with Pat about better ways to fuel my body and I have definitely noticed a difference in the amount of energy I have throughout the day. After every class I am always excited to return the next day for another WOD.
Since Hunter started working out with Crossfit in Loveland he has an entirely new energy. Before Crossfit, he worked out at a gym daily for a couple of hours. At Crossfit, he has found a family of athletes,of all ages and ability, that encourage and push each other. It has become his addiction. He comes home exhausted, but excited. He is being taught proper nutrition also! Something that we all welcome in our family. He steams his own vegetables and turns down sweets and soda. This, all in less than 30 days. Amazing.
