1. What motivated you to join Armor?
I came to Armor because of my husband John. We had been to a different box and it stressed me out just going. They would say “no rep” if you didn’t do something right. I just wanted to workout without stress. So we didn’t go back when the summer was over. John found Armor and begged me to go. I kept saying no but he was persistent and kept telling me it was a great place. People were nice and it wasn’t stressful. After 2 months of begging me I went to my first wod in February of 2014. The rest is history and I am soooo happy that I stepped foot into Armor. It is truly a family like no other.
2. How has Crossfit helped you become a stronger person mentally and physically?
Crossfit has made me stronger mentally and physically. If someone asked me two years ago if I could do anything with weights like I do now I would have probably laughed!! It’s amazing how fast you get stronger. John even tells me that I walk differently with more of a confidence. I feel Crossfit has made me a stronger person and has given me confidence that I have never had.
3. What is your favorite part about working out at the box?
My favorite part of working out at the box is all the positive people. Everyone is there for their own personal reasons yet everyone supports the road they are traveling. I love how everyone is so friendly and I truly feel that I matter. Lots of laughter and fun times!!!
4. If you could tell one person that has never been to the box, one reason they should come, what would that be?
I tell everyone I meet that Armor is the best place to be. Crossfit has changed my life for the better. I get to work out with my amazing, supportive husband. I get to laugh, cheer people on and be supported by everyone. It’s a whole body workout and I have never been in better shape in my life.
