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?
“In the snatch, clean, and jerk, the shins matter because they dictate where the knees and hips can go as well as what position is quad dominant or hamstring/hip dominant. Surprise, surprise; our body is interconnected.” – Coach Mike
“The athletes who don’t regularly olympic lift, may be missing out on things, whether they know it or not.” – Coach Mike
Ask yourself, are you a producer or consumer?

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.
