“I soon realized how much more personal

 the relationship is with the coaches 

and the members at CrossFit Training Valley.”

      A friend of mine told me about CrossFit Training Valley and how CrossFit works.  When I first came to Training Valley I did not know what to expect.  I was use to the regular “big box” gym experience, which is not all bad.  I guess I was expecting the trainers/coaches to be all about working out and fitness.  I soon realized how much more personal the relationship is with the coaches and the members at CrossFit Training Valley.  I don’t know how many times I’ve stayed after a class to discuss health questions, diet, life style changes and so much more.  I really look at the coaches as friends helping me be more healthy and achieving my goals.  The Training Valley coaches have a genuine desire to help and care about the members…it’s kind of amazing actually.  You don’t see too much of that in businesses today.  The class structure keeps you consistent and makes you go at a certain time.  This has really helped me get and stay in a routine and the great coaches and other members make it not just a workout but a social experience. 

“I really started to see improvements in

 my mobility, body strength and most of all stamina.”

      When I first started CrossFit I realized how incredibly out of shape I was.  I was excited that there were so many different exercises and I was bound to be good at one of them.  To be honest, it took me six months to actually be able to get through a whole workout.  The encouragement from not just the staff but the other members kept me coming back.  I guess because CrossFit is so intense, even for the best of athletes, I didn’t feel bad for not completing the daily workout.  Once I got over the six month hump I really started to see improvements in my mobility, body strength and most of all stamina.  After a year of going to Training Valley I feel like a whole new person.

“Once I started seeing real results both in my health

 and body it was a no brainer.  This really works!”

      Though it was tough at first I really never considered quitting.  Mainly because, even though I could not finish the workouts at first, I always felt like I got a great workout.  The great thing is that at CrossFit Training Valley there are members at all levels so you never feel like you are the only one struggling or learning.  On top of that the best of the best are always there to encourage you and don’t act like they are superior because they are pushing their limits just like everyone one else.  Once I started seeing real results both in my health and body it was a no brainer.  This really works!

“This is the first time I actually feel like I can

 totally achieve my fitness and health goals.”

      I started to have more energy and be in a better mood after the first two weeks or so.  After six months I really started seeing a big change in my body and started to loose significant weight and build muscle.  I still have a long way to go but I have no doubt in my mind now that I will get there.  This is the first time I actually feel like I can totally achieve my fitness and health goals.  I just feel so much healthier!  I can concentrate much better and I feel so much more productive at work and even at home.  I can outrun and outplay my kids now!!!  Even my reflexes have improved.  I caught a glass falling off the table the other day and my 11 year old son said “wow, no way you would have been that fast before CrossFit!”

I’m excited to see where CrossFit takes me in the future!”

      The various class times allow me to come to Training Valley when life gets in the way of my workout schedule.  I love the 6 PM class but if I have to go to the 5:30 AM because works gets crazy, I have that option.  I have made great friends at CrossFit Training Valley and if I just stopped coming I would be disappointing myself but my friends as well.  I look forward to coming to class and seeing my friends.  I guess it’s hard to hang out with friends when you are older and have a family and job.  At CrossFit Training Valley I can work out, get healthy and hang out with friends all in one hour!  Can’t beat that or put a price to that either!  I’m excited to see where CrossFit takes me in the future!
