When I first tried CrossFit, I had recently run a half-marathon and thought I was in great shape. That lasted until about 5 minutes into the first workout.
The first CrossFit workout kicked my butt. It completely defeated me…but just made me want to try that much harder. I became passionate about CrossFit and the idea of competing with my own goals and PR's within a supportive community in Southern California. After chasing a dead-hang pull-up for over a year, the feeling of pride I got when I finally completed it was indescribable.
As a military spouse, the community CrossFit provides is invaluable to me. Within the first week that my husband and I moved to our new duty station, we already had a community of new friends at Port City CrossFit in Wilmington, NC. While traveling, I love dropping into other boxes around the country and meeting new people. I love CrossFit and WOD Gear and am proud to represent this company!
