CrossFit: Not My Idea

“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.”

Giving Up is Not an Option

“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.”

Still Improving

“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.”

Looking for the “Next”

“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

Trying My Best

None of it compares to the joy I get from showing up at Friction CrossFit and sweating along side everyone else.

Opportunity for Better

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.

I Can’t Be a Mer-Mom

“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.”

What’s Your Why?

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!

Limitless as a Lifestyle

“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.”
