CrossFit Ten Twenty Blog
Why do you CrossFit?
I can say I was scared to start CrossFit because I was not strong, nor was I that fit and when I thought about CrossFit, that is what popped into my head. One day I watched a girl that was 12 do a 75-pound thruster and told myself if she can do it, than I can do it. Then I joined CrossFit Ten Twenty and had no idea that my life was completely going to change, for the good. I am eating healthier now, excited to workout and fin my new 1 rep max. CrossFit means so much more to me now. It is my outlet, and makes me feel so good about myself. I know that because of CrossFit, I gained another family, amazing friends, and confidence in myself, which I never had.
If you could describe Ten Twenty in three unique words, what would they be?
The first word would be Family, because I know anyone at Ten Twenty would be there for me and to help push me to get my goals. Second word would be home, because when I walk into Ten Twenty, I feel I am at a place I know I am meant to belong. Last word would be determination, because everyone is determined to get where they want and they don't give up. Everyone there is determined to see where the family is going to go, and everyone will be there to push you to get to your goals.

This past weekend, Ten Twenty had three teams compete in the Barbell Battle at CrossFit Collinsville. We could not be more proud of each and every one of the competitors. A big shout out to Dana and Jenna who took 2nd place in the Women's RX Division. Thanks for all the Ten Twenty members who came out to support their fellow athletes and coaches. Thanks CrossFit Collinsville for having us and we look forward to the next competition.
The STL Barcycle was a great time on June 20th. The group had some good chats, bonding time and some laughs. Stay tuned for our next event outing.
Great work today everyone! Keep up the consistency and everyone will be crossing their summer goals off the wall! Feel free to always pull me aside before and after class to discuss personal goals! No matter how big or small we will all conquer them together!
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.
Please welcome the new members who started CrossFit 1020 in May 2015.
We are excited to have you as part of the CrossFit 1020 family!
