TL;DR – this place fucking rocks – great coaches – great space – great community- and CrossFit scales to your current strength level even if you’re a noob.
Never really lifted weights ever?
Those are all things that described me as I decided to take the plunge and start doing research on what this whole “CrossFit” thing was.
I knew a couple things about myself when it came to fitness.
I’m not, in any way, self disciplined when it comes to working out – I’ve discovered through many, many, many New Years resolutions that buying a gym membership is both a waste of time and money.
I can never get myself to go consistently beyond the first month.
I loved having a personal trainer whip my butt into shape, but damn, they are expensive!!
What I needed was a community and support system that made it fun to exercise.
A place that I could be where I could look both foolish doing something I’ve never done before, and have a guiding hand to help me get better at all the things.
RWS CrossFit is that place.
Confident, Excited, and a shit ton Stronger.
Those are some of the things that describe me now.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard work and some days are tough.
What makes it easier is having Justin, the coaching staff, the smiling, and supportive faces of the people you workout with pushing and cheering you along.
You’re doing it together, you’re doing it with the help of a group of experts who are personal trainers for a whole heck of a lot cheaper than a 1v1 session while still getting that 1v1 experience.
I was worried about the stories of injuries and hurting myself – all I have to say is, be smart – you only get injured when you don’t listen to the coaches and you push yourself harder than you should.
Everything is scaled down for me since I had ZERO experience with weightlifting – I went from having never lifted a barbell ever to lifting weights I would have never thought I could put up.
It’s been an awesome adventure and I highly recommend you give it a try.
