You are a busy professional, focused on career and family. And your fitness is suffering as a result. You may even have a mainstream gym membership, but you’re either not using it, or just not seeing the results you want. You want to live a larger life – to be strong, healthy, and have energy and stamina to be a weekend warrior and be a model for your family and community.

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.’ That’s what the Captains told me when I mustered out of academy after five weeks and just two days before graduation. So, at the urging of a co-worker I joined an On Ramp class at CrossFit Santa Rosa.

The difference was astounding! After six months of regular CrossFit followed by six weeks of one-on-one strength training I went back to fire academy and smoked it! There is no substitute for expertise, and I thank the coaches at CrossFit Santa Rosa for utilizing theirs to make me a better cadet and help me graduate.
