My CrossFit journey began at Ludington CrossFit in 2015. I had moved to town for work and didn’t know a single person in the area. I had heard about CrossFit but didn’t think about joining until it was the only well known fitness center option in Ludington, so I gave it a try to meet people.

Little did I know, I would be addicted 2 years and 3 boxes later.

Looking for Results:

I have been an athlete/played sports my entire life.

Upon graduating college I had tried may different fitness routines, and nothing was giving me the results I was hoping for.

I had always focused on strictly cardio and hated lifting weights and didn’t pay attention to nutrition.

I’d like to thank all of the awesome coaches and athletes for teaching me the proper techniques/lifestyle changes to improve my flexibility, strength, and health. The atmosphere at Friction is the perfect amount of competition, encouragement, and family that I crave. I plan to continue to incorporate CrossFit in my life for many years to come!

“Ideally, with this equipment we are using it once we get close to a competition or scheduled max out in order for us to get used to that gear and what it does to our body. We are trying to peak at the right time with our strength and have all aspects dialed in. ” -Coach Mike
