“As I was adding my new Snatch PR weight into the app where I track all my movements and I decided to take a look at what my progress has been recently. Once I realized how much my fitness has changed (especially since January) I thought it was a good time to just say thank you to the coaching staff at CFJC.
I have been doing Crossfit for about 6 years now (on and off) and have honestly never felt stronger than I have in the last few months. I started to think about this more lately since 3 girls (newer members of the gym) have come up to me (at different times) asking ‘how do you lift so much weight when you’re so small? I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do that’. Little do they know how long this journey has been and how when I first started I had the same thought process. I literally couldn’t clean a 65# bar, could only do a pull-up with a green band, and used the training bar for snatches for way longer than I’d like to admit. I realized this morning that I’ve had 13 different PRs within the last 8 months and it’s all thanks to the great coaching at CFJC, as well as the other CFJC athletes who definitely continue to push me out of my comfort zone. So THANK YOU for making sure each athlete feels like they’re being attended to, you guys are all the best!!!”
