I found CrossFit 2311 in June of 2013. I was always into some sort of fitness such as triathlons, competitive swimming, high school basketball and recreational weightlifting. I heard that a CrossFit gym was going to open in the area and figured I would give it a shot. I jumped into it the very first day the gym doors opened.
I’ll be honest and say I really didn’t like it at first. Not for any bad reasons, I just didn’t like being pulled out of my normal everyday routine that I had become accustomed to. I decided to finally commit to it and trust in the methodology of CrossFit and now I couldn’t be any happier about where I’m at in my fitness journey.
It’s very hard for me to determine what my “biggest” accomplishment is so far because I feel like I’ve bettered myself in almost every area. I guess I would have to say being almost twice as strong as I was before I started. Since starting I have come so far and I’m even coaching a lot of the classes at the gym.
My biggest goal I’ve set for myself is to compete with the best athletes in the CrossFit Regionals and see how I compare to all of them. CrossFit has definitely changed my life for the better and I wouldn’t go back and change anything for the world.
If someone is thinking about trying CrossFit out but are timid, I would tell them that you have nothing to worry about. At CrossFit 2311 we are one big family that encourages each other daily. We have all skill levels at our gym. From beginner to advanced athletes, everyone is welcome at CrossFit 2311 and if you decide to commit to it I can promise you it will change your life too.
