In January, I will have been at Friction CrossFit for 2 years! I have never felt better. My daughter helped me find Friction and I began with PT sessions with Jeff.
I had never done CrossFit before and I was quite intimidated – there was so much to learn!
Almost 2 years later, I still feel like I have a lot to learn, but I am confident enough to go to a new box when I am traveling. I love how I can scale movements to my abilities. The coaches here are quite attentive and can zero in on what movement I need to do. I appreciate all of their tips and comments.
We all have our own reasons for being here, and you can get as much out of a workout as you want. I see other members pushing themselves so hard, and then when they reach a goal or PR that is just so inspiring.Being at Friction has changed my life.
Always wanted to try CrossFit but felt too intimidated?
“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
I’ve trained for couple of half marathons, run, and I’d hit my goal. Post-race, I’d lose the spunk and go back to living my life.
I like to play— I could play almost any competitive group activity for hours. I think that’s one of the reasons I have enjoyed CrossFit so much.
My brain fog and sluggishness are now a thing of the past and I’m more fit than ever.
“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. We make it a priority here at Victory Kid Barbell, and Friction CrossFit…” -Coach Mike
“First off, this is an overarching theme for Barbell Club (…) be aware of your surroundings.” – Coach Mike
I am happy to have found CrossFit and even happier to have found Friction.
“The main things we look for in a jerk, specifically the split jerk, is balance.” – Coach Mike
