I walked into Lake Washington CrossFit a former athlete who spent all her time sitting in front of a computer. My goal was to get back into my size 6 jeans. Little did I know that less than a year later, I would have blown past that goal after losing over 47 pounds. I tossed all my size 10 jeans, moved right past the size 6s and into size 2s.
I was able to cut my prescription medications in half, even eliminating a few health problems. I reclaimed my athlete title when I competed in the CrossFit Open in 2012, less than a year after my first CrossFit WOD. These days I’m able to handle stress better, I sleep better, I look better, I feel better, and I’m a lot more fun to be around.
There has been a total transformation in my life and I owe it to what CrossFit has given me. I’ve turned into an evangelist for LWCF – bringing in friends, my husband, and even my mom. Try it. You will be hooked after the first WOD.
