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!

How the Catalyst Athletics Warmup helps our athletes improve their range of motion
Reminder, you can train through an injury. There is no need to stop coming to the gym. We, as coaches, can find something for you to do.
“Give all of these exercises a shot and feel the benefits of stronger and more stable shoulders.” – Coach Mike
“The hips being down is the biggest position we aim for” – Coach Mike
“As far as nutrition goes for weightlifting, it doesn’t have to be different than the one we would prescribe for any CrossFitter: meats, veggies, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, no sugar. ” – Coach Mike
CrossFit had always peaked my interest, but I kept thinking that I wasn’t strong enough.
Because my parents were always overweight, I just assumed that was the way I should accept I would turn out because I had poor genes.
“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
I have tried many fun fitness activities over the years (after I finally got the motivation to get off the couch and cigarettes!)
“Better mobility in the squat and overhead position leads to safer and improved technique; and improved technique leads to heavier lifts.” -Coach Mike
