It all started from a friend, a colleague, a peer . . .
From being bored with the same routine, from plateauing time and time again . . .
I wanted to get healthy, I wanted people around me who cared . . .

They called it constantly varied, functional movements, executed at high intensity . . .

It's about taking the first step -

It's called CrossFit and I friggin' love it!

Prior Injury or Worse. . . And still going Strong

Over the last three years a lot of different people have walked through the doors, young and old, out of shape and in great shape. . . a couple of items that you might not notice unless you saw them everyday:

1.)  They got in shape (or even more in shape).
2.)  They worked their buttocks off - and feel better than they ever have before. . .

So what's the catch?

Now if that doesn't get your blood flowing, maybe driving this point home will:

In the last three days, we have been coaching athletes that have more metal in their bodies than Robocop (see image below)

We have also been working with athlete's that have minor impediments to working out such as prior injuries.  Whatever your ailment, there is a way to scale and prevail.  We work with all different types of things, all in the end to better you.

CrossFit lives by many mantra's, one of which is:
"We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs."

Surprising to most people:

A)  They still work out - they have heart - and they want to get better.
B)  Nothing slows your role better than your mind; now, that is not to say that you shouldn't rest, because that is important.  Rehabilitation is only as effective as the person performing it, trust me when I say that I have been there.

CrossFit can be performed by everyone.  Any handicap can honestly be overcome, my example will be Kyle Maynard.

Please take the time to look, if nothing else, you will honestly have no excuses on why you can't do something, and the next time you think something is too difficult, remember, it can always be harder, but it can always be done:
