Describe RXD in your own words: I love RXd. Having experienced another gym for over 3 years, I saw and experienced the RXd difference in my first week. It is well run as a business and gym with experienced, knowledgeable and amazing coaches and programming. The community is welcoming and friendly always. It is truly a Crossfit family that members become a part of instantly. It’s fun, it’s challenging and it’s rewarding. I am so happy I found RXd. I can’t think of any other place I’d rather be.

RXD Start Date: October 2017 (but I started CF in Sept. 2014)
Athletic Background: I grew up doing all sports but was an age-group swimmer from 9 years old through high school. I also did volleyball in high school.
How did you learn about CrossFit? A course was offered in the city of Anaheim course schedule for my old gym. I decided to give it a shot and got hooked.
How has CrossFit RXD changed your life? As an adult, Crossfit is the only form of exercise that I have kept up consistently. It has not only helped me become physically fit and strong, it has enhanced my mental well-being as well. It has made me more emotionally stable and mentally tough. It is a part of my life and my day-to-day routine. I only wish I had found it earlier in my life.
