Good Morning (or whatever time of day it is in California)
I’ve been wanting to write CFLA for awhile now, but have never gotten around to
it. I want to thank you for introducing me to this wonderful sport that quickly
became an obsession for me. I have always been what my friends call a ‘meathead’
and have lived in the gym since I was 16, but I struggled to find a training
program that matched my fitness goals. I’m a 6’5, 225 lb endurance runner
(5k-marathon), extreme sport enthusiast (snowboarding, rock climbing, white
water kayaking, etc…) and a stubborn masichist too proud to sacrifice
strength for endurance or flexibility. Most gyms and magazines didnt offer a
program that worked for me until I read about your gym in muscle and fitness a
couple of years ago. The day I read the article I went and did Fran, puked and
I was a Jr. at a small college on the Illinois Iowa border at the time and noone
in the area had ever heard of crossfit much less opened a gym so I trained off
of your site (and the mainsite & sealfit.com) I loved the community aspect of
crossfit and it wasn’t until I started medical school in a different town this
august that I finally found a gym of my own.
Thanks to CrossFit, I’m in better shape than I ever could have hoped for. Even
better, I always have time to get a hardcore workout in (at home if need be),
even when my med-school schedule makes me want to beat my head into a wall.
It’s the only thing that keeps me sane during test week.
I’ve been following you site since the day I heard about crossfit and will
continue to do so no matter where I train. So again, THANK YOU.
