Crossfit has changed my life a huge amount in a small time. I have had the following gym memberships, Supershape, Cardinal, LA Fitness and Anytime fitness over the past 9 years and I decided I needed to start getting back into shape and was thinking about another gym membership. I remember sitting at my desk at work and Googling “crossfit” and it show me several locations. So naturally I went to the one that was closest, not CFHud, and I remember looking around but no one said anything to me. So I thought on to the next one. I remember walking into Crossfit Hud and was amazed at what I saw. Everyone was doing this group workout that I had never seen before, running around doing the same thing, the music was up loud and the place was alive. After a few minutes of watching the organized chaos I left thinking I would check in to it a little more. As I was walking in the parking lot I was approached by a member of the Hud, Hanley, and he said he saw me in there and asked if I had any questions. The fact alone that he chased me down in the parking lot to see if I was interested was enough to sell me. I knew I was in the right place. I remember having to go through “elements” and I was thinking, why I know how to work out and I was never more wrong. During the first few months when everything was extremely new to me I was sore in places I did not know I had places and I loved it.

It’s more than a gym, it’s a community. I remember struggling to do one 10lbs weighted pull up and the whole class was cheering me on, I made it by the way.  Everyone cheers one another on; it is like having a dozen workout partners who want to see you succeed. When you do everything together as a team it helps, and is motivating. I was a little nervous at trying this at the age of 45 but we have a lot of members my age which was reassuring. And we have some pretty bad ass 40 plus members here and one day I want to be one of them.

I am really proud of the Paleo Challenge. I lost 17 lbs in 30 days at the age of 45. I can honestly say I could not have seen doing that under any other circumstance. Not only did I shed the weight, I added almost 100 reps to my post performance test and it was a blast.

I plan to continue to go to the 6am class, almost every morning, I love starting my day off that way. I would say the best part of my day is when the WOD is over and I am, sweating, gasping for air and cursing myself in my head for putting myself through this. I get to work and people ask me about my work out that I did that morning. I’m not sure if they are really interested but they know I am going to tell them about it anyway. I tell everyone I can they should look into joining a crossfit community. When Flat 12 is donating beer for the CrossFit Open you have got to be in the right place. Where else can you bust your but in a gym then turn around, open the refrigerator and grab a beer and hang out with the fellow participants?

I remember on several occasions sitting at the Stacked Pickle with a dozen or so members of the Hud and thinking to myself this would never happen at a regular gym. Most people probably do not know the names of 10 people at their local gym, let alone want to hang out with them after work. I look forward to seeing and hanging out with my new friends. Oh and learning double-unders and eventually muscle ups.
