In every gym that I’ve been a member of, I’ve always had to get a personal trainer, because, I needed someone to push me beyond my mental limit. But personal trainers got expensive, and traditional gyms were not having much of an effect on me. Then, I heard about Crossfit. I did my research and decided that this might just be the type of “working out” that I needed. I became a member of Crossfit Hamilton in June 2012, and it has changed my life! I am 42 years old, and a mother of 4 children ranging in age from 16-4, and believe me when I tell you that I look and feel better now than I did when I was 25. I just thank God that I found Crossfit, because it has challenged me in ways that I would never have been challenged in any other forum, unless I was a professional athlete. The coaches at Crossfit Hamilton are skilled, knowledgeable and so supportive, and all the members here are so helpful and encouraging. I know that I still have a way to go when it comes to certain skills, but I also know that I have come a long way from where I was before! I can never work out in a traditional gym again. I love when people see me and say “you look great IJ, your work outs are paying off”, I smile, and proudly respond “I don’t work out, I Crossfit”.
