New Found Wellness
I have never ever been one to seek out exercise. I decided to join New You Challenge in September because my weight has been creeping up ever since having my two girls.
I always have found time to meet my kids’ needs but never had the energy at the end of the day to tend to myself.
CrossFit has always intimidated me but thought New You sounded right up my ally and I am so glad I gave it a try.
Through New You, I have found the confidence to get to the gym three or four times a week and put in a real effort. It has not gotten easy for me but amazingly it has become enjoyable.
I look forward to my time at the gym every week even though I have to wake up at 5am!
The coaches have been incredibly inspiring and I love the community of the classes. I have made some really great friendships and sparked an interest in nutrition and wellness.
I am stronger now than I have ever been. I am amazed every time I look at the WOD and think, “No way I can do this” but then I end up doing it.
I am seeing some tangible changes in my body and want to continue to see how far I can go. I have signed up for Boot Camp (since barbells still intimidate me) and am really excited to continue on my journey to being a happier, energetic, and healthy mom/woman.

Want to focus on your lifting too?
The health and fitness industry is a very broad and uniquely diversified culture in the sense that every training style and gym brand has its own special culture and specific benefits to it. At Friction CrossFit we are happy to have the opportunity to educate first...
“So as you end the open season and return to your regular fitness routine let’s reestablish some places to improve and think about some areas that were exposed. ” – Coach Bobby
“A good combination of learning comes from watching weightlifters who lift well (…) and studying the resources that are in good standing with the sport(..)” – Coach Mike
“Want better snatches and jerks? How about better shoulder mobility and stability? Do the Turkish Get Up (TGU).” – Coach Mike
“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
