Why Do You CrossFit? by Megan Green

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.
