Crossfit as a healthy lifestyle change, is a great option, but I can’t imagine having a better experience than I have had at Crossfit 717. The coaches not only have an ability to encourage, but they have a unique ability to inspire. Everyday, I show up inspired to be better than I was the day before, and for that I am forever grateful.
After one year of Crossfit, I can’t imagine what my life would be like without it. I’ve lost a total of 70 pounds, and gone from a size 16 to an 8. I’ve never felt stronger, more fit, or happier in my life. This is more than a gym. It’s more than just a place to work out. It’s somewhere I can go after (or before) a long day of work, get my ass kicked, and actually feel good about it. It’s the place where everyone belongs. No matter their size, age, athletic ability, etc.
Beyond the training and WODs were the people. From the coaches to the friends, everyone is incredibly supportive. Not only do they not let you “go light” when you doubt yourself, they are actively cheering everyone on until the last person finishes, and I have been that last person numerous times.
