There were several reasons I started at CF2311. First of all, my husband and I had recently moved to Waynesville and had our second child around the same time, and I desperately needed a kick start back into fitness. I had always been active, but moving to a new place and not knowing anyone, I needed a jump start. My husband had heard of CF2311 through a friend of his at work and he decided to start On-Ramp. I have to admit, I was pretty skeptical, being a surgical nurse and having heard of crossfit injuries. However, it made me feel much more at ease to know that one of the owners/coaches is a PT! After my husband completed On-Ramp, and loved it, I decided to take the plunge and I’m so glad I did! In addition, it’s been a great thing for my husband and I to do together.
My first impression of CF2311 was that it was definitely intimidating! But I soon realized that everyone is so supportive and helpful and that it is a close-knit family atmosphere. We are all there to help and encourage each other in our fitness goals.
Umm, I’m working on everything!! Mainly I am continuously working on my form in lifting and trying to challenge myself daily to improve. I tend to think, if I make the time and effort to get there, I may as well give it my all.
I can’t really pinpoint ONE great achievement. I think it’s been a series of achievements, seeing where I came from when I first started 10 months ago. My endurance and strength have improved greatly, as has my mental health from getting regular exercise with uplifting people and coaches.
My favorite memory was probably completing my first RX workout last month. It wasn’t necessarily the biggest workout and it took me 9 months to get there, but I did it, when I never thought it was possible before!
