Adam, Why Do you Do CrossFit?
What was your fitness life like before you started training with True Spirit CrossFit?
I would bike to work inconsistently, but otherwise have little to no exercise. I enjoyed hiking, but often felt winded on even some shorter hikes.
What brought you to True Spirit CrossFit in the first place?
I worked with someone who had nothing but good things to say about True Spirit, but then I moved for quite some time. CrossFit seemed too intimidating to start in a new city, but when I moved back to Bozeman, True Spirit quickly felt like community.
What was your first impression? Has that changed?
My first impression was similar to how it is now - a community of like-minded people who are passionate about self-improvement and encouraging others.
What was the first thing fun or positive thing you experienced while training with us?
True Spirit, mixed with diet, has helped me to lose 20 pounds so far. This weight loss has helped me to enjoy more True Spirit programming such as rope climbs and pull-ups that would have been a much greater struggle prior.
Are you working on any special CrossFit related skill now?
I am currently working through the muscle-up progression and am really enjoying the bar work.
How has you life changed since training with TSCF?
I recently biked Going To The Sun Road in Glacier starting at Apgar, totaling 59 miles. While the effort was still extreme, I successfully completed the ride!
What's your favorite True Spirit CrossFit memory?
Every time I learn a new skill, a new favorite is made. True Spirit has encouraged me to continue to safely train while ensuring that I'm working towards the best I can be.
