Condition One CrossFit is excited to introduce a new member to our coaching team, Christina!
Get to know more about Christina and her CrossFit journey in her own words:
As an avid runner and sometimes cross training (i.e. random lifting at a gym mixed with a few squats) enthusiast, I knew I needed more from my workouts. I ran 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons regularly and logged hundreds of miles in a month’s time, however, I was getting bored, not making any real fitness gains, and began to be unsure of how to push myself harder. After all, running was the only form of fitness I truly had any knowledge of and I was also doing it all alone. Although I never lacked the drive and motivation to work out, I did get lonely. After years of watching my friends make amazing fitness gains and form unbreakable bonds, I set my ego, preconceived notions, and all fears aside and walked in the door of COCF, and I’ve never looked back.
As a wife, mom of four, and a photographer, I have to be active and healthy for my family and my profession. CrossFit has been a catalyst for strength, endurance, and stamina. I haul my kids around effortlessly and pack heavy photography gear around for hours and sometimes over miles like never before. My runs have become easier, faster, and longer. What’s more, I now have a new group of friends who have become more of a family to me. They push and encourage me on my bad days, and celebrate with me on my good ones. They are my cheerleaders when I make those amazing fitness gains that I was for sure would never be mine.
My passion for CrossFit has inspired me to become a Level 1 Trainer so I can help others discover the same love, appreciation, and enthusiasm for a program that has truly changed my fitness, overall health, and happiness. It might sound cliche, but CrossFit is a life changing program, that is, if you allow it to be. I’m so glad I went into the gym with an open mind and I want to be part of others’ transformations as they start (and continue!) their CrossFit journey. #crossfit #cocf #conditiononecrossfit #coach ...
