It’s an Honor to be Athlete of the Month, great start to 2020!
I started CrossFit almost 6 years ago now. I’ve gone through many stages in my CrossFit journey. When I first started it was about survival, going 2 days a week and being super sore for the other 5. After 6 months to a year, the soreness went away and started to see a lot of changes and that’s when I was hooked. For the next 4 years or so I’ve probably at the gym doing 5-6 CrossFit classes a week and 2 Olympic lifting classes a week and some extra squatting.
The last year and a half have been a bit of a struggle for me because I injured my knee and was forced to take a step back from how much I was doing. I’ve always had no problem putting in the work at the gym but always struggled with being consistent outside the gym with mobility, diet, and mental state. I’ve since have been more aware of what I’m eating and focusing on recovery as much as the work I put in. I feel like I’m in the best spot mentally and physically I’ve been in a long time and have new goals and new approach to accomplish them.
With everything above being said, I don’t come to the gym to get in shape anymore, I come in to hang out with all the friends I’ve made in the last 6 years. The community is the best part of TNT and what keeps me coming in every day.
