During the past fifteen months, CrossFit Silverback has given me more than I could have ever expected. I’ve found something that I can easily maintain forever, but more than anything, I’m happy and confident about myself for the first time ever.
I had tried nearly every other exercise program out there before joining CrossFit Silverback: marathon running, P90X, yoga, traditional gyms with personal training, cycling, kickboxing, and even boot camps. I was spending countless hours in the gym and effort on doing the things that “they” tell you that you “should” be doing and eating but with no weight loss or any dynamic changes to my body. I was obsessed with tracking every calorie I consumed as well as every calorie I burned. I was always fearful of gaining weight and I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t super overweight, but I certainly wasn’t fit.
I joined CrossFit Silverback in January of 2012 out of frustration with everything else. I had been disappointed so many times previously that I didn’t even expect it to work. But, I showed up and instantly was hooked. The community aspect at CrossFit Silverback and the support of the coaches sets it apart from all other fitness outlets. The box community cannot be underestimated as they make working out so enjoyable and everyone is so encouraging; they push me to do my best! The changes I saw were almost instant and they have been sustainable with out much effort. Even when I travel for work, I can bust out a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Burpee and Sit Up WOD! When in town, I just show up to the box three or four times a week and eat real food; no counting anything, just enjoying life!
