After 1 Month
Walking into Champlain Valley CrossFit for the first time, I was nervous as hell! I had never worked out in a gym before, I had never once picked up a kettlebell or a barbell, and I was so nervous I was going to be really bad at it. Everyone there looked so lean and muscular, and I didn't; but I soon learned that it didn't matter. The coaches and fellow gym members were so helpful, encouraging, and supportive, and within that first month, I started to feel like the gym was my new favorite place to be.
After completing the month-long on-ramp, where you learn the important basics on exercises and form, I committed to a month of classes, Monday through Friday, at 5:45 a.m. After immersing myself in CrossFit completely, I fell in love because it offered so many benefits. My weight was down, especially my belly fat, and I had more arm definition, more toned thighs, and a perkier butt (my husband even noticed). I felt more energized, stronger, and more confident because of all the physical and mental challenges I was faced with.
I decided to sign up for a year-long unlimited membership so I could continue to go five days a week. If I felt this awesome after just one month, I couldn't wait to see what the next few months would bring.
