“I like to joke that I accidentally joined CrossFit. I was always intimidated by the CrossFit communities I met over the years, but when a friend recruited me to do a Spartan Sprint to celebrate our impending 40th birthdays, I googled how to prepare in just three months and found SRSC offered a great custom program.
I met those initial goals and just keep finding different reasons why I love SRSC. Really, it comes down to being a part of a healthy, positive community, with a nice dose of competition, that focuses as much on your mental strength as your physical.
For me, the past year has been one lesson after the next of turning “I can’t do that!” into “Sure, I can try!”, or better yet “Oh, I did do that!”. And that’s meant going from rope “hangs” to rope climbing, going from 3 mile runs to 18+, and even starting to like burpees!”
