The following comes directly from one of our dedicated members. We want to not only thank her for her determination so far, but her candid and unsolicited story that she wanted to share with our community. Hillary (and our members like her) is a direct reflection of our original vision for Coral Reef CrossFit, and why we get out of bed every morning.

IMG_8552“I was tired of looking in the mirror and being disgusted with what I looked like at the age of 24. I knew I had to change something. When I decided to join Crossfit, I will admit, I was very nervous. I had serious doubts about it all.

“What is a WOD?”

“Can I even pick up that bar?”

I really did not think I was the “Crossfitting” kind of person until I walked into Coral Reef CrossFit. In less than two months I have achieved things I never thought I could even do and I have Jon and Robby to thank for that. In these first two months of Crossfit, there had been a lot of crying, death stares, and times when I told both of them I wanted to quit, but even through all that they have still motivated and pushed me without hesitation. The passion they have for seeing you succeed is very evident. They break down every skill and lift so that there is not one doubt in your mind that you can do it! I still have a long ways to go before I get to where I want to be, but I am surely on my way! Crossfit is honestly the best part of my day and I cannot imagine going back to a normal gym now. Jon and Robby have pushed me harder and further than I thought was possible. Give it a try. I promise, you will not regret it!”
