Hear what our members have to say about CF330!
I joined CrossFit330 for many reasons... I was at my heaviest, very unhealthy, and I needed to lower my BMI. My BMI had to be lower than 35 to even be considered to be a living donor for my mom. On my first day of The World's Best Boot Camp (8/21/15) my BMI was 39! During those 6 weeks, I met some amazing friends, did things I never thought my body was capable of doing, gained confidence, had a blast, and reached my BMI goal! I loved it so much, I went on to do the very next WBBC. I am now 2 months in to CrossFit. I just can't get enough, I go an average of 6 days a week! The workouts kick my butt every time, but it's exactly what I need. The coaches and members are a huge part of why I continue and now love to workout. They made me feel comfortable from the start. It really does feel like a family. Everyone is always so encouraging and helpful. They push me to be the best version of myself. Not only is my BMI now a 28, but I have lost 11 inches off my waist in just 5 months. I still have a long way to go, but I know that CrossFit330 will get me there. They have changed my life so much for the better and essentially have given me AND my mom a new lease on life. I can not wait to see what the rest of my CrossFit journey will bring.
I've been asked many times to describe CrossFit 330 in one word. At first I thought that was easy. There were so many words that came to mind; community, friendship, family, strength, determination. But now if asked that same question I don't think I could do it. Because honestly how can you put into one word something that has literally changed your life for the better in more ways than one? CrossFit 330 is my home away from home, a sanctuary for the strong that is staffed with incredible coaches eager to train daily. There are so many amazing classes offered, from beginner level on-ramp classes to classes that focus on just barbell movements. As someone who was scared of a barbell, through their Diesel Strong class I've been able to find a new love for heavy lifting and Olympic lifts. There is even CrossFit Kids that my 4 and 6yr old daughters attend! CrossFit 330 has helped to mold my family into a fit and healthy family, where we look forward to our daily trip to the gym to get an amazing workout in! Trust me when I say, I started at the bottom, not being able to do a single burpee or being able to lift anything heavy. And now, with the help of the staff and this facility I've dropped 65 pounds, lift heavy, and can do multiple burpees like its nothing! CrossFit 330 has forever changed my life and had gave my family something we can enjoy together! I love this place and this community!!!
When I first started CrossFit ten months ago I went into my first WOD with the same goals that most people start with: lose weight, get stronger, become a healthier person. Since that first day I have most definitely achieved those goals through my training, but more importantly I have learned more about myself as a person, athlete, competitor, and friend than I could have ever imagined. CrossFit will push you past what you think your limits are, force you to overcome your fears, and inspire you to keep coming back for more day after day. You will fail at times! But I guarantee that fail will eventually become your PR if you put the time and dedication into yourself. CrossFit is for EVERYONE! Don’t let anyone ever tell you differently. You can do, achieve, and conquer anything you want to, and with the support and encouragement from the coaches and other “tribe” members it will even be FUN at the same time!
My mission started in March 2014 when I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I contacted Michelle to discuss Crossfit as I was 55 years old at the time. Michelle had me come to the box one day and run through a workout to see my skill or non-skill level. After much thought and discussion I joined in April and shortly thereafter took on the Just Lose it Challenge. I was a bit skeptical as I was 55 and everyone else was in their 20's or 30's. I figured I had nothing to lose. At first it was hard, between the workout and the diet, but I was seeing results and feeling much healthier. I had more energy, was sleeping better and felt good about myself again. The first 10 days was the cleansing part - at times I thought I was going to STARVE, but the Advocare products helped immensily. I loved the meal replacement shakes and the powder protein. Michelle and the whole crossfit team are the best. I have never lifted weights before this and to be honest, scared to death. I'm feeling more confident now, with much help from Dustin. I have never met a more supportive group of people, just when you think you just can't do this anymore; someone just starts cheering you on. Needless to say, I was shocked to find that I came in second in Just Lose it Challenge. I lost weight, inches and body fat. I continue to use the meal plan and some of the Advocare supplies and continue to lose weight and inches.
