“When I first started training with Jeff I could not do a pass-through with a PVC pipe, my balance was horrible, I could hardly squat … the list goes on and on.”
“There were so many times when I left Friction crying out of pain and frustration. I was hurting, physically and emotionally. These things that I used to be able to do felt like a struggle. I felt like a failure.”
“I didn’t want to try it because I figured what I was doing was enough and all that CrossFit stuff couldn’t offer anything useful to me.”
“I needed something to commit to. I needed something to hold me accountable. That is just the way I operate. I cannot do things strictly on self-motivation. As terrible as that sounds, I know I am not alone. People just work better when they have a support system.”-Karen Malloure
None of it compares to the joy I get from showing up at Friction CrossFit and sweating along side everyone else.
It’s that kind of community that I wish everyone would surround themselves with—a community where you’re constantly challenged and motivated and encouraged to do and be better.
“Plus, it’s not really realistic to have a goal to become a mermaid, I can’t really join the 300# club on my deadlift with a fin.”
I CrossFit now because a huge circle of my people are here. My family has grown. My love of myself and my confidence have grown!
“I needed to be able to do something that kept me active, kept me interested and stimulated, and rehabbed an injury at the same time.”
“Just in time for the open! This was something I was not planning on participating in.”
