Madelis Rivera Rocha
After a semester in grad school of working full time and going to school full time, sitting at a desk from 7 in the morning until 9 at night, and an average step count of around 3,000, I really felt the need to get myself in gear. I had tried a gym that had group style training previously and remembered that it was a much more motivating situation than going to the average globo-gym. There happened to be a CrossFit gym within walking distance of where I was living so I decided to check it out. After 2 days of training with the owner of that gym I was more sore than I had ever been in my life and I was hooked. What has kept me doing CrossFit almost 3 years later are the results, variety, and community. I love the challenges that come with CrossFit and that there’s always something to improve on no what your skill level is; and I love the family that I have gained.
