In my quest for fitness, I’ve done most of the typical things over the years (gym memberships, hiring personal trainers, boot camps, running club, Zumba, step, spin or whatever classes); always willing to try the next fitness craze.  When I first heard about CrossFit I thought “too hard for this too old,” but it sure looked awesome!
 
One day I actually ended up watching a CF competition in support of my friend’s daughter.  As a spectator, I was fascinated and I envied the athletes and their abilities.  I however, still had the same personal fear that it was too hard for me.  A few years later, I saw CrossFit Tallahassee’s Women’s Challenge advertisement.  It said something like “it does not matter your age or experience level you just need commitment.” I knew I at least had commitment so I decided what the heck!  That was almost eleven months ago; I love it!
 
Why do I love it?  CrossFit Tallahassee puts all the things I’ve done before together and then some!!!  CFTally met me at my level; there’s scaling if needed for every movement.  The workouts are always varied and scores are recorded.  On top of that, it’s like having a personal trainer at every workout.  Coach Greg helps to keep my form in check, motivates me to be better (although during the workout I really don’t want to hear it J), and provides nutritional guidance from time to time.  The most amazing part about CFTally is the challenge for growth and the reward of each new accomplishment or personal record that I hit.  CrossFitTallahassee is a game changer!
