"I’ve never felt embarrassed for not being as strong or having as much endurance as others. Everyone there is super supportive and friendly."
I joined FireTower CrossFit in 2019. My daughter had been attending the CrossFit kids’ class and was having so much fun that she begged me to try an adult class. I finally agreed, and it really was a lot of fun, so I kept going back. I was nervous at first, because I’m not young or athletic, but I felt welcomed right away. Even though there are many amazingly fit and athletic people there, I’ve never felt embarrassed for not being as strong or having as much endurance as others. Everyone there is super supportive and friendly. CrossFit has improved my life in many ways. I have a lot more energy than I used to, especially in the late afternoons. I don’t have to have an energy shot after work anymore just to get through the evening. I sleep better and feel more focused at work. Another huge bonus is that when I do other physical activities like hiking, raking leaves, moving furniture, etc., they’re much easier and enjoyable, because I’m a lot stronger and have way more stamina that I used to. Finally, it’s been a great family activity for me and my daughter. We have fun celebrating our progress and challenging each other. I love that she is spending time in such an encouraging, body-positive environment, where she learns to be strong in so many ways.
