I was introduced to CrossFit in 2009 and immediately fell in love with the sport! Back when I was in high school, I played basketball, baseball, and soccer. When I graduated I joined the Army and after a couple of years I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I went from being in good shape at 150 lbs to being in poor health at 250 lbs. In hopes of getting back into shape I started strength training. I gained size and strength but was still rather heavy and not in great shape. I noticed myself getting discouraged by my slow progress. I then attended my first CrossFit class here at OV Fit and couldn’t believe how fun and challenging the WOD was. Like I said I was hooked! A couple months later I received my CrossFit certification and started working as a trainer at CrossFit Hanover and as a strength and conditioning coach for the local high school varsity football and basketball teams. I’ve worked with people of all ages and abilities. I’m now in the best shape of my life. I can say with all certainty that CrossFit has changed my life.
One of the biggest things I hear from people is, “When I get in shape I’m going to come in and give CrossFit a try.” CrossFit is for you regardless of your fitness level, age, shape, or ability. Come check us out and we will change your life!
