“July 2017. I walked into Pullman CrossFit for the first time. Terrified. Desperate. Overweight. But full of fire and determination. I had no idea how to Snatch or Clean, I could barely do a sit-up, couldn’t do a box jump, and had never even touched a Kettlebell. But I never gave up. I allowed myself to be a beginner, and trusted the coaches. With consistency and a lot of willpower I have managed to lose 50 pounds, and have become so much stronger.
By far the best part of this journey has been becoming part of the Pullman CrossFit community. Every milestone, every PR (no matter how small), is always celebrated by everyone.
I do this for myself. I celebrate my accomplishments. But I am forever indebted to the Pullman CrossFit community. None of this would have been possible without each person who has encouraged me, celebrated with me, and pushed me to do more than I ever thought I was capable of. To the coaches, thank you seems so inadequate. I wish I could articulate clearly what you have given me, and how thankful I am for it.
To anyone considering changing their lifestyle… I promise you can do it. It won’t be easy. You will come up with 1,000 reasons to quit. But don’t. And watch how much your life changes in ways you never dreamed.”
