No More Sluggishness
I’ve spent a lot of my life being fairly active. In college I’d always be in the gym or doing something outside.
That all ended as soon as I graduated and became a workaholic.
I quickly took on characteristics of the the office life. I gained weight, ate terribly and felt tired and burnt out most of the time.
I was able to adjust my diet and drop the extra pounds, but still felt sluggish. I knew I didn’t have enough physical activity in my life. Shortly after that realization my roommate and I started looking into different options and we landed on CrossFit.
We looked at a few boxes and landed on Friction because it appeared to have the best gymnastics programming out of the others in town.
We signed up for a no sweat intro and have been with Friction for almost a year now.

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.
