Jeremy LeFeber - Why do You Do CrossFit?
What was your life like before you started training with True Spirit CrossFit?
My fitness was pretty non-existent before I started CrossFit at TSCF. My perception of CrossFit was that it involved a lot of high intensity and high impact exercises. Although I was familiar with many of the exercises commonly used in CrossFit, I also knew that I would struggle with many of them.
What brought you to True Spirit CrossFit in the first place?
I asked my wife for a CrossFit membership for my birthday, because I was looking to jump start my fitness, as I was simply languishing in my current routine of not going to the gym with any regularity. Matt Conner arranged the introduction to Leslie and TSCF.
What was your first impression? Has that changed?
My first impression was that there is a fair amount of physical diversity at TSCF and the coaches really embraced the unique needs of each participant. I continue to work toward getting more RX workouts, but I have a ways to go. I continue to appreciate the coaches' attention to my progress and providing me with support and instruction so that I can continue to get more RX work outs.
What was the first thing fun or positive thing you experienced while training with us?
I don't know if I have a singular experience, I just enjoy the camaraderie of the lunch time crew. It's a good blend of focus, fitness and fun. I feel that I am making progress and am closing in on my 100th workout.
Are you working on any special CrossFit related skill now?
I am working on my kip and my deadlifts. I also need to get more flexible in my hips and shoulders.
How has you life changed since training with TSCF?
My fitness has increased substantially, but I still have a work to do on my endurance.
What's your favorite True Spirit CrossFit memory?
Getting through the 1/2 marathon row and getting my first ring muscle up. Now I just need to get double unders!!
