I will never be the skinny girl. This is ok with me. But I can be the strong girl, and that’s why I joined Cross Fit Relentless in West Hartford, CT. What I did not expect to get out of my membership was the total encouragement, support and community I have had the pleasure and honor of discovering.
I can tell you that I hate the gym. I have always hated the gym. I love sports and I love being active, but I hate the gym. Cross fit is not the gym. A box does not look like or feel like a gym, and the members certainly do not behave like they are in a gym.
Today the work out of the day was really hard for me. I finished last. This is not an uncommon event – for me to finish last. But today most of my class stayed with me and rooted me on as I worked my way through to the end. This is not something you would find in a gym. Their encouragement and support is what got me to push myself, and it’s how I get stronger.
Thank you to all my coaches and classmates at Cross Fit Relentless. I really feel my life changing because of all of you. I will never be the skinny girl, but I definitely will be stronger.
