My journey with CrossFit began in 2012 at Virginia Tech's McComas gym. While I was doing the typical gym routine, I noticed some guy doing movements I had never even seen before and working way harder than me. I asked him what he was doing and he told me about CrossFit and promptly invited me to join him. The next day I did my first WOD (workout of the day) with this guy. I nearly collapsed from exhaustion, but I was sold. In a short 15 minute workout two things happened: I challenged myself more than I ever had and became friends with this guy I had just met (his name was Mikey).
That's what I love about CrossFit, it always provides an opportunity to challenge yourself and it unites people under a common goal.
After graduating from Virginia Tech in 2013 I joined the CrossFit Radford community, got my CrossFit Level 1 coaching certification in September 2014, and started interning here in January 2015. I hope you'll come check out CrossFit Radford so we can work hard and reach our goals together!
