Where you choose to go is entirely dependent on what your lifestyle is. Lake Washington CrossFit happened to be in my area, but this particular CrossFit gym allows for an open format that can accommodate the busiest lifestyle. I began my CrossFit journey at LWCF in August 2013. During this time, I’ve not only seen a big change physically but also mentally. CrossFit allows you to get to know yourself. You’ll learn your weaknesses and it’ll make you furious but you’ll learn your strengths as well and that’s what keeps you coming back every day. The coaches, Clark and Nick, are very knowledgeable in every aspect of CrossFit. If you have an injury, they’ll help you through it. Unable to do a kipping pull up when you first begin? Just don’t say “I can’t,” and they’ll give you modifications to get there. Every person has a different goal coming in but knowing you are surrounded by athletes who are equally as dedicated, if not more, is inspiring.
