My college soccer coached joked that it looked like I had never even seen weights before I began my collegiate career, and it was pretty true. I first started working out in the off-season my freshman year, but the monotony of the same workouts every week made it hard for me to stay focused. Once soccer was over I didn’t want to keep doing the same workouts, but I also didn’t know how to find a good program to follow. I first started CrossFit in Jacksonville, Il during my last semester of college and I loved it.
Once summer came around I started working out at CrossFit Enhance in Decatur and then found CrossFit 1020 here once I began Dental School. Having been to multiple boxes I can say that 1020 is by far the closest group of people I have been around and that makes it enjoyable to come back every time. I enjoy CrossFit because it gives me that competitive feeling, against myself and others around, but it also is rewarding knowing that everyone is there to get a little more fit each time and they’re all there to help one another.
