J-Bo: Why do You do CrossFit?
What was your fitness, CrossFit, or yoga "life" like before you started training with True Spirit CrossFit & Yoga.
I had an active lifestyle on my goat farm and enjoyed running, although that was mostly a spring-fall activity. I had done a boot camp class but left the gym and was looking for a winter option to maintain some fitness during the colder months.
What brought you to True Spirit CrossFit & Yoga in the first place?
My friend, Ralph, from DC was LOVING CrossFit and he was a huge motivator. I also had some local friends who enjoyed the workouts, so I was curious and thought I'd learn more.
What was your first impression? Has that changed?
I was a bit intimidated by the weight lifting and the RX versions. It took a while, over a year, to let that go and not feel badly when my work outs were not RX
What was the first thing fun or positive thing you experienced while training with us?
My pull up was pretty exciting, and some of the lifting I surprise myself.
Are you working on any special CrossFit related skill now?

How has you life changed since training with TSCF?
Can you go on longer hikes, do you have more energy, you are happier and have increased vitality. I feel that my workouts are more consistent throughout the year and I am happy with my upper body strength which has improved. I am maintaining my goal of top 1/3 in age group for most races and feel confident doing all my farm chores.
What's your favorite True Spirit CrossFit memory?
It was super fun to have my DC friend Ralph join a WOD while he was visiting here.
