What were you doing before you joined CS&F?

CS&F is my third gym.
Eight years ago I started at Crossfit Triforce with Caitlin, Victor & Brett.
I moved to Crossfit Ecstatic when Triforce closed.
I moved to CS&F when Ecstatic closed.

Favorite music to workout to?  
Layton’s Playlist, sorry Alex.

Favorite Cheat meal? 
All my meals are cheat meals…favorite is Pizza.

What were your goals when joining CS&F and have you achieved them?
My goals are to have an active life as I get older.  That requires strength, endurance, and mobility.
CS&F is the perfect place to continue to work on all three.  So my biggest achievement is that I keep going to CS&F.

Do you have any other special memories/ achievements during your time here?  
When Crossfit Ecstatic was closing I was trying to decide on my next gym. 
I went to a workout at CS&F to see if CS&F was a good fit for me.  That workout was with my
old coach Caitlin & I quickly got to know the guys in the back corner of the gym.
It was a welcoming & fun group.  A good fit for me.

What advice would you give to a newbie just joining Cumming Strength and Fitness?  
Don’t wait until “I have to lose 20 pounds” or “I have to get in a little better shape before I join”.
Start today.  It’s a welcoming community of people with all levels of fitness.
Individual components of the workouts all have replacement exercises that you CAN do.
You’ll find that the support and encouragement from your workout buddies help keep you coming back day after day. And coming back day after day is what makes the difference.
