How would you describe OFF-Base CrossFit and what has it done for you?
OFF-Base CrossFit is strength – physical and mental. It brings peace of mind, motivation, hell, enlightenment, the impossible made possible…all rolled into one. It’s a network of support like no other.
I have become much more confident in what I do everyday thanks to CrossFit. I came here with a basic fitness foundation, and CrossFit helped tremendously in building on that. I have lost 21 lbs. since working out at CrossFit, and recently I have started trying to eat Paleo. I have lost inches in places I had not lost any in while working out at a gym for 7 months.
CrossFit has taken me out of my comfort zone and pushed me to destinations I did not think I could reach. It has given me this drive and determination to continue my journey of doing what is right for me – what is best for me and my kids.
Being a part of CrossFit has not only given me a new outlook on my body and what it’s capable of, but it’s also taught me an important lesson on how to go about through life. You cannot live a fulfilled life by just existing and going through the same motions everyday because it is easier. You have to push yourself to the limit, and oftentimes you need someone else by your side to show you exactly where those limits are. That support system has always been solid in OFF-Base CrossFit, and it has given me the strength to stay on my newfound path.
CrossFit has helped keep me sane while it seemed as though everything else was crumbling around me. It has kept my mind off of any negativity coming my way, and by showing me what I’m capable of, it has helped to get me into the mindset that I can overcome any obstacle, physical or otherwise. I don’t know where I would be without OFF-Base CrossFit, but I do know I would not have come as far or been as strong, and I thank OFF-Base CrossFit for being here for me – not just for me but for everyone they have helped and are continuing to help.
