The results I have seen?
The results i have seen in 7 months of Crossfit are nothing short of a miracle! 1 yr post knee surgery i could only manage steps one step with one foot at a time while holding onto the railings for dear life, i had to hold on to furniture to lower my body to sit or hold on to furniture to push my self to a standing position, i had to hold on to the car door and push up with my arms to get out of my car…within 3 weeks of group classes at crossfit..i could actually go up a step almost normally! Thats when the workouts became about being strong and healthy and not about losing weight. Now i can squat below parallel, Lunge without falling over, jump a 20″ box, jump out of my car, run up and down steps without holding a railing!
I was diagnosed in December 2011 during on ramp classes with High Blood Pressure..140/90 my Heart rate 86 by april 2012 my Blood pressure was 114/70 my heart rate 72. I used to drink 10 cups of coffee with coffee shots a day just to have energy, now i drink 1 cup and bounce thru my day with tons of energy. I started at a size 16 in Jan 2012, as of Aug 4 I am in between a 6-8, I have lost 30lbs..27inches total from my body..6inches from my waist alone. Can you tell i am Happy? I am very happy with my body and how strong i have become! I am Happy and content with my Life!
My favorite part?
The Community! I have to say from the moment i walked thru PortCrossfit doors there was a positive atmosphere! My Coaches truly scaled the workouts to my ability and NEVER made me feel less than, they always made me believe I COULD! My classmates are the same as my Coaches always cheering me on to finish even though i was always the last one finished! At PortCrossfit your only a stranger once, after your first class you have become part of the PortCrossfit family. In every class my coaches gave me the opportunity to succeed and i gained tremendous confidence, my physical ability soared!
