Is CrossFit Too Hard? Jim wasn't sure, but now he's one year in and, well...they're his words, not ours! Check out his story!

Starting on a fitness journey often means stepping out of our comfort zone. One of our members recently shared his story of transformation, highlighting the impact of what one decision to walk through our door can do.

"After two extensive shoulder surgeries, I had external voices trying to convince me to steer clear of CrossFit. "It's too aggressive", "The movements, along with the heavy weights, will re-injure your shoulders", "You're too old to start that kind of training"... but after my initial consult with Julie (my personal trainer), I decided to give it a shot.

One year into it, I am stronger, both physically and mentally, than I have been in my life. Between Julie and her husband Trent, another coach/trainer, they have personalized and scaled my workouts to provide me with challenging and exhaustive workouts.
