I’ve been a member for almost a full year. I spend 6 days a week here. There’s NO place I’d rather start my morning! I have 2 little boys (ages 3 and 1), and every morning they look forward to coming to the gym with mommy, too. The childcare room is top notch. Ms. Eden, Ms. Haley, and Mrs. Hilary make sure my kids are taken care of while I get my workout in. The boys LOVE the kids room and all of the staff!!
CrossFit Palm Beach has completely changed my approach to fitness. After years of forcing myself to get to standard gyms and running, I decided to give CrossFit a chance. Though I enjoy CrossFit generally, it is the atmosphere and coaching of CrossFit Palm Beach I enjoy above all else. Tony and Andrew Frezza have created something truly special in their box. CrossFit Palm Beach functions more as a community meeting spot than a gym. The coaching staff they have assembled provide top-shelf instruction. Each day, I am pushed to exceed my limitations, but always in a safe and disciplined environment. My running, strength, physique, and stamina have improved dramatically because of CrossFit Palm Beach. I will not work out anywhere else again. CrossFit Palm Beach is worth driving from great distance to experience.
In 5 days, I am going to be celebrating my one year anniversary of joining the CrossFit Palm Beach family. What an amazing year it has been. I’ll never forget, at the end of the 6-week New You Challenge, my coach said “Give us one year.” I put 100% of my trust in those coaches and in the process. Here are the results:
In one year I lost 24 lbs. I lost 1.5″ off my bicep, 4″ off my chest, 6.5″ off my waist, and 5″ off my hips. But CrossFit is more than just getting physically fit and strong. It’s about teamwork and building relationships with amazing people. It’s about being in competition with yourself and striving to be better than yesterday. And it’s about understanding that any obstacle that is put in your way can be broken down with the right mindset and hard work.
I am so grateful for the friends I have made (love my 7 p.m. crew), and to all the coaches who knew they could push me even though I told them I was going to die. You all had way more faith in my ability than I did! So excited to complete another 12 months.
