I was introduced to CrossFit in 2007 back home in Massachusetts by a few friends and family members who had “drank the kool-aid”. This was the early days of CrossFit, when nothing had yet to be proven. I spent a year making fun of their ridiculous fitness ideas before finally joining in. The combination of being a washed up high school athlete and a very bad motorcycle accident made me realize my body wasn’t getting any younger. 3 years into my CrossFit experience, the CrossFit way of life and fitness blew up. A few of those friends and family members began opening CF gyms of their own. This sudden growth gave me the opportunity to start coaching in 2012 having learned from, and worked out next to, some of the “OGs” in the Northeast. My life since then has never gone without CF, and coaching has been just as important to me as being an athlete. What I love about CrossFit is it gives us more than just fitness. It’s family, friends, accountability, a place for you to belong. Or maybe it’s a place to escape everything else about life on a bad day. Either way, it should be one of the best hours of your day. Anyone is capable of getting a good workout in, while enjoying yourself. Age, race, health, gender, life choices, none of that matters as long as you’re willing to show up.
