CrossFit Testimonial – Barbara
Six years ago I was scrolling the TV channels, eating oreos (no joke!) and came across a replay of the CrossFit games. I saw a big, strong, beautiful blonde woman (who I came to know, meet, and compete against as Lindsey Valenzuela). I thought to myself, I want to be like her. I googled CrossFit near me and went to a class the next day. I walked in at 272 pounds, pre-diabetic, and intimidated. In the first year, I lost 95 pounds and although my goals at the time were for pure aesthetics, I stayed because of the community. I was welcomed everyday by strangers who became friends, coaches, and mentors. The relationships I’ve made through CrossFit have been life-changing and the relationship I’ve built with myself has been life-saving.
