- What brought you to Armor CrossFit?
For years before I joined Armor, my family and I would drive by the box and I would see all these athletes running, training hard, and giving it their all. It wasnt until January of last year that I decided to become serious about my physical fitness. I spent a few months looking for places to train until I decided to give Armor a try. I was inexperienced and a little intimidated, but soon enough Armor became my second home and family.
2. How has Armor CrossFit helped you become a stronger person mentally and physically?
Mentally , Armor has made me more disciplined, given me a more positive outlook on life, and made me realize that anything is possible as long as you are determined and persistent in what you do. Physically, Armor has been nothing short of a miracle. When I 1st started I weighed 265lbs and could barely lift the bare 45 lb bar, I sometimes needed to use the 35 lb. 3 months in I dropped down to 225lbs and was lifting double what I originally was. Now currently I sit at at 215lbs, lifting 3-4 times as much as I started all around. and I cut my mile time from 16 1/2 minutes to 7 minutes. (I can also do pull-ups now, Which I could never do before!
3. What is your favorite part about working out at the box?
My favorite part about the box is definitely the mix between the intense workout and the supportive “get work done!” attitude of the environment. The gyms I was attending before Armor were all the same, the trainer talked to u about one time every few weeks and u were usually left to work out on your own. Armor however offers a closer bond between all the athletes and trainers, Everyone is supportive of each other and we help each other grow, and the trainers look out for you and treat you like family because we are one big family. I’m blessed to know everyone here and be part of the community.
- If you could tell one person that has never been to the box, one reason they should come, what would that be? I would probably tell them to come to the box because if you work diligently you get results. Every workout is tailored to help you grow more and more and constantly take you to greater heights every time you come back. It’s just a great place where you become greater alongside great people!
