Wow. BAMF. This is great! I can’t believe it, at the same time I’m honored to have this title.
Hi everyone, I’m Jon G. 24yr old local guy who started CrossFit last June and have been hooked ever since. I had always heard about CrossFit but never really gave it any thought. I thought these people were like a crazy fitness cult that did a lot of HIIT lifting. It ends up I was wrong AND right. Wrong in the sense that HIIT was what those “CrossFitters” did…but spot on with the crazy. I thought I was going to die the first week out of Foundations. I got pains in places I didn’t even know I had. But something in my head told me “don’t give up, it’s only going to make you better.” And it did. I started GCF at 243lbs and am now at 206-208lbs!!! I’m still on a path to get shredded, like some of you guys, and I know this is definitely the place that will get me there.
I’m lucky to have this “mom and pop” gym with all of its knowledgeable coaches who really care and push you to strive for being better…they’re like the Power Rangers. I’ve gotten better with my functional health, not just benching heavy and leaving the gym with some false sense of accomplishment, like I used to have pre-CrossFit. I can’t wait to get even better! My freshman year of CrossFit I learned a lot and grew both mentally and physically, and I can see this is going to be for life. I’m lucky to be able to WOD with you guys at GCF and be able to call this box home, and Miki & Lee’s “secret militia”, and to have my loved ones support me on this new found passion. Thanks guys!
