CrossFit Burien Owner

I was first introduced to CrossFit in 2013, when a new gym opened up down the road. I didn’t know much about it, but decided to give it a try and I have been hooked ever since. Prior to CrossFit, I was doing a lot of running and yoga, or spending 45 minutes on the elliptical at the gym, but now I don’t think I could ever go back to those days on the elliptical. I truly believe that anyone can do CrossFit! I love that the workouts can be scaled to meet any one person’s individual needs, and whether they have been doing CrossFit for 5 weeks or 5 years the same workout can challenge both people and push them beyond what they ever thought they were capable of. While I do like that CrossFit also provides an outlet for my competitive side, the atmosphere in the gym is only one of support and encouragement. I have been at CrossFit Burien since 2017 and am so thankful to have found a gym I love with such an amazing community. As our gym community continues to grow, I look forward to the adventures, challenges, and accomplishments that lie ahead.
