Why do I CrossFit? Because it works! And sometimes the you might not know until you go out and do something that you used to do, and see / feel the difference. I just got this email from Charlie, one of our students…

“Just wanted to tell you a quick story. Last week I went mountain biking for the first time in two months. I ride with a group who ride 2-3 times weekly, kite surf on weekends and generally don’t stop working out. Early December I last rode with them and barely made it up the steep 3 mile hill and I am sure they waited for about 10 minutes at the top. Last week I rode with my old group, having not biked since December. My only workout has been my two Petranek classes weekly over the last 2 1/2 months. When I reached the top of the mountain, I turned around and noticed that I couldn’t see anyone coming. Not only had I left them behind, but I felt for the first time in years that I could have kept on going at top speed.

Story speaks for itself but boy does it illustrate the benefits of your training program on all facets of exercise and sports…it also made me enjoy rather than dread riding up that steep hill again. See you this afternoon and thanks to you, Becca, Jonesy and the rest of the great team for shattering my comfort zone every time I come to class!”

Mtanwyck, after a particularly difficult workout, fell sound asleep on the concrete…
