No More Excuses
Hello Friction friends. My name is Heather Pace. I was born and raised in El Paso, TX. I am the wanderer in the family so most of my family and friends are still living in Texas. I left El Paso when I took a full ride soccer scholarship at a D2 school in South Texas. I was in amazing shape thanks to those awesome 3 a day practices in 115 degree weather
My battle with weight started when college ended. They forget to tell you that once you quit practicing and playing everyday that you shouldn’t keep eating like you are still working out like that.
Getting back in shape has been hard.
I have started so many programs and stopped once I didn’t see immediate results. I used every excuse in the book and every week I said I’d start again Monday. It wasn’t until recently that I realized how my weight had effected how I viewed myself. I decided to change! I started working out about a month before the New You challenge started.
I didn’t feel like I was pushing myself enough on my own. I have always been a team player.
When I saw the challenge on facebook I knew it was exactly what I needed. A strong group of women from all back grounds pushing each other to be better. It has been awesome! Everyone at the gym has been encouraging and very friendly which makes it easy to want to be there everyday.

“We not only forge fitness, but character. As health and wellness are not made from an unstable foundation of character.”
“For athlete’s that have done CrossFit for 1-2 years or more, the hypothetical situation of building a garage or home gym comes to mind. Athlete’s tend to weigh the options of building their own gym versus continuing at their local box.”
“A lot of time and effort goes into building an exceptional hour that surpasses standards.”
Do you ever find your knees hurting after a high volume squat day, a long run, or a bunch of box jumps or jumping rope? You’re not alone. Your feet are the most likely culprit!
…Close your computer browser, and get to work (or go to sleep). If you do all three of those things, you’re amazing. Say it with me; YOU…ARE…AMAZING.Seriously, you’re doing better than half the population.
“We pride ourselves as being more than just a fitness facility. We want to develop ourselves and athletes to be the best possible version, inside and out.”
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...
