How did you learn about CrossFit? I actually learned about Crossfit in 98-99 an old trainer from 24hr Fitness I knew started a CF in his garage and went on to own a gym I believe in Balboa. I do have to say I wasn’t a fan of CF for many years, not having tried it for myself, but finally gave in and gave it a shot. Like in the matrix I took the RXD Green pill.

How has CrossFit RXD changed your life? Over the last few months and during the open, which I did for a little competition and push, but mainly for fun. What happened was it changed me, made me realize I always tried hard, but leave just a little bit there. During week 1 of the open I hit the point where mentally I was at my “ceiling,” but I was no where near finished. I told myself I have (2) options I can quit, or I can push through and finish. I finished with seconds to spare, but it lifted my lid and opened my mind to realize I have more in me than I even thought was possible. Since I have pushed myself in many areas and expanded myself in many areas. It’s defiantly working in me for the better!
