"What is Crossfit to Me?"--it seems appropriate as we celebrate Marc's 41st birthday, to say Crossfit has been both a life changer and a life saver. One year ago (10 months ago really) there is no way Marc or I could possibly have performed a WOD. You guys have been incredible trainers, motivators, and friends. We can not say THANK YOU enough for what you do every day in the box. I truly believe Crossfit has added quality and quantity to our lives. Really need to have Marc remind you of all the health issues he used to have--high cholesterol, bad ankles, etc... Issues are gone now and we are having a blast with our friends and family!"
"I am proud! I am doing things in that gym that I never thought I would be able to do in my life. I feel better and have more energy than I did 10 years ago. I don't think you and Michelle realized how much yall have impacted our lives. I am sure many other people in the gym can say that too. "
"Tom Thanks for all the coaching and help...You have been a big part of my training and my success of NO injuries or down time! Will represent great on Saturday I know it!!!!!High Fives all around!"

"Just wanted to say a big thank you on many levels...Thank you for making this weekend happen for us, so much time and effort on your part. It has opened my mind to what is possible, I learned a lot about myself and what I could do (maybe) one day! Seeing the best in action was awe inspiring. I will be raising my game after this...
Thank you for being the kind, open people that you are and setting the tone for SRCF, which, I think, has the best bunch of FOLKS around! Thank you for picking me up and dusting me off during my weepy moment,... boy.... who thought dead lifts could be such an emotional endeavor! I am so looking forward to what the next year might bring!"

I just wanted to tell you guys – Thank You! When I joined Crossfit over a month ago I had no idea the difference it was going to make, I just knew I wanted to try something different because I was sick of forcing myself to exercise.
Crossfit has reminded me how much FUN pushing yourself physically can be - I haven't felt this jazzed in awhile. :)
In addition I’ve seen definite performance improvements. I have to be honest when I was told by multiple people I could improve my running pace by just doing Crossfit I was leery. I was so used to having to do 4 to 5 runs a week to feel “prepared”. But I was at a breaking point and couldn’t fathom doing only running anymore – I was bored. So I focused on Crossfit and have only squeezed in 1 or 2 runs a week.
Well GUESS WHAT!?!? I did the 5k Turkey Trot today and shaved 2 minutes and 24 seconds off my time from last year! I’m a believer :)
I felt amazing after the run and the best part was – I had fun running that 5K. I had a goal to beat my time last year and I felt good doing it and was having fun. I wasn’t dreading the run. Crossfit has made ALL the difference – being physically active is something I enjoy again.
Thanks Tom & Michelle
