How did you learn about CrossFit Warehouse?

I always knew about CrossFit and was a fan of the CrossFit games for years but never really looked into joining a box. After years of going to standard gyms my fiance and I wanted to find somewhere that would really challenge us and force us to be outside our comfort zone and that’s when we found CrossFit Warehouse and haven’t regretted one second of it (except maybe during filthy fifty)

How has CrossFit Warehouse changed your life, lifestyle, and level of fitness? 

I am in the best shape I’ve been in since high school, It’s helped motivate me in my eating habits and I am definitely more conscious of what I eat and drink now.

Long Term – Just living a healthy life and enjoying being active.

Short Term – Ring Muscle ups and Handstand Walks!

NONE, but if i had to choose, maybe overhead squats

Pushing myself to be better, getting comfortable being uncomfortable

What advice would you give to someone looking to join Crossfit for the first time?

Don’t be intimidated and have fun! the most difficult WODs are the most fun!
