No longer have sleep apnea.

After being diagnosed with sleep apnea due to having too much fat on my neck, I came to the realization that I needed a serious change in my training regimen. Always being a semi-power lifter with a hint of bodybuilding minus the cardio and never having any kind of diet had caught up to me.

The difference was astounding!

I trained on my own for a year before going to the fire academy.  I ran, lifted weights, stretched and threw a 24-foot ladder around.  I trained but, lacking expertise, I didn’t train the right way and I wasn’t strong enough to beat the drill time limits at academy. ‘You have heart and know the drills, but you need to take a year off and gain 20 pounds of muscle then try again.’

My life has changed

Since beginning Crossfit at SRSC around 6 months ago, my life has changed drastically both in and out of the box. Family, friends, relationships, all in flux; Crossfit has been the constant. I learned to listen not only to the coaches, but also to my body.

I am grateful for the intensity

At 51, I am grateful for the intensity and, especially, the efficacy of this workout. The members cheer each other on and take real pleasure in other’s accomplishments, at whatever level they are.  For me, the gym has been an oasis of wellness amidst the impact of these economic times. With my busy work/family schedule, now I can be a weekend warrior with my favorite activities without getting injured and sore. Really, I can’t say enough about it.

I couldn’t be happier with the experience

I am a professional Figure Skater who has performed and competed for over three decades. My career has been highlighted by skating in the internationally acclaimed Snoopy on Ice shows. I have earned hundreds of medals but the most thrilling was my three gold medals and bronze won at Adult National Figure Skating Championships.
