My name is Jessica and I am 23 years old. Before Crossfit my physical level was running once every full moon, surviving on a strict diet of pizza and beer, and of course complaining about not seeing any change. When I first started hearing about Crossfit I thought those people were crazy, I had visions of the high school weight room and avoiding such places out of intimidation and . Around mid-November, about one year into my Crossfit journey I hit a personal frustration. On one side I felt like I was working my butt off and I was seeing some progress but nowhere near where I would have thought to have been a year in. I debated giving it up and trying something different.But I liked the sense of community I was getting at Trifecta and nothing else had encouraged me to actually get off my butt and do something like Crossfit had. I took a long hard look at what I was doing and decided I was making excuses. Could I be going 5 days a week? Yes. Was I? No. Could I be eating healthier? Yes, but mac and cheese is so good. I don’t know what clicked in me but something said stop blaming everything else and just dedicate yourself to do. New Year’s Eve I RX’d my first work out. The progress I have seen in the last few months makes me want to kick myself for not throwing myself fully into this when I first started. Dedicating myself to 5 days a week and healthy eating has changed so many other aspects of my life, I feel stronger, I sleep better, my anxiety levels are down, and over all I just feel happier with my life and myself. I have also developed a bad habit of continuously telling my roommate how awesome I think my butt looks
I can’t begin to express how great the community at Trifecta is. It really is the people who make Crossfit as great as it is. I am so appreciative to have such a great support group who have continued to push me, and encourage me.
