My background is not that of an athlete. In fact I can say that I grew up pretty sedentary. Sure I played the occasional youth league soccer, baseball, and football. But I was always the big kid. In high school I lost a lot of weight by doing a fad diet, but I gained all that weight back in college. Then in college I lost a lot of weight, but after graduating I slowly and surely gained all that weight back as well. It wasn’t until I found Metabolic CrossFit that I discovered the secret for me to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. That secret ingredient is fun!
I find that every WOD that’s offered at Meatabolic CrossFit has with it challenge, intensity, but most importantly fun. Sure there are times that I ask myself, “Why am I doing this?” But then I feel and see the results. And I don’t just mean weight loss. I mean lifting heavier weight, running farther distance, running a quicker pace, doing more reps, achieving a movement that I never have been physically able to do before.
For me CrossFit is not some fad. It’s not some shortterm effort that I’m using to lose weight. CrossFit has open the door for me to see what a healthy lifestyle is. CrossFit is about being the most fit me that I can be. If it wasn’t for the coaches and everyone involved at Metabolic CrossFit there’s no way that I would be the most fit me that I am. And I can confidently say that. At this moment I am the most fit I have ever been. I’ve been at Metabolic CrossFit for only 11 months. And in these 11 months my life has been changed. I’ve lost a hundred pounds. I’m learning what it means to eat healthy. I’m gaining more confidence and selfworth day by day. I am becoming the athlete I never was.
