Test That Turned Into Passion


I started at Friction CrossFit last March with the New You program. I had been working out at another facility and was getting bored with my routine. I was finding myself skipping class and needed a change. I had never done CrossFit before so to say I was a bit intimidated in an understatement.

From the first day, I was amazed at what we were doing; what I was doing!

I thought I was in shape, after all I was going to the gym five days a week taking class after class. Regardless, this CrossFit stuff was pushing me harder and challenging me to do things that I never thought I could do. I kept coming back.

I loved the variety and I loved the challenge. While each visit got better, it was the encouragement and camaraderie and coaching that got me hooked. Every day is a different challenge, but every time I leave I am made to feel great about what I have achieved and I look forward to coming back. What started as a test has grown into a passion.

I am happy to have found CrossFit and even happier to have found Friction.

Weightlifting Wednesday: Nutrition

“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
