I started at Crossfit Incite in March, 2013, after about 7 years of not working out much and having 2 children.  I was tired all the time, had no energy or desire to do things. I suffered from depression, anxiety and moodiness at times. I knew I needed to change my lifestyle but I didn’t really know how too. I was the heaviest I had ever been at 212 pounds.

I had heard of Crossfit Incite and watched a coworker as she began to work out there and change her life so, I decided to try it out. I was very scared that first day I went. I was embarrassed of my size and working out among athletes, but I decided to leave my pride at the door and go for it. I am so happy I did! After that first workout I was hooked. It was like nothing I ever experienced. It was the hardest thing I had ever done but when it was over I was so proud of myself for accomplishing it and that was something I hadn’t felt for years.

As the weeks progressed, my confidence began to grow and I gained energy, happiness, and friends. Making so many new friends was the one thing I didn’t expect. At Crossfit Incite, we are a family. Everyone is so supportive, encouraging and they rally around each other during the workouts to keep going. Yes, we are all there to get a great work out and work on our goals and PR’s, but we are also there to support and encourage each other. The crossfit community is amazing. There have been many workouts I have wanted to stop or scale down because it can be difficult, but with the support of my peers and coaches, I push through and finish.

Crossfit is now not about losing weight for me, which I admit is a nice bonus, but it’s about overcoming fears I have and facing them head on and accomplishing things I never thought possible. That then translates into my life as a mother, wife, and friend. My confidence has grown and I feel my life has been better physically, emotionally and spiritually. So far, I have lost 55 pounds and have gained many dear friends. I love my Crossfit Incite Family and I could not have done this without the support of them and my loved ones.

Reminder:

The BodPod will be here this Tuesday for re testing.  Please sign up at www.arizonabodpod.com for your spot.  We are starting a 3 month nutrition challenge on September 16th and these numbers will be very beneficial to have!  The week of the 16th we will be doing some benchmark and test WODs to use for this challenge.  Our main goal with this challenge will be performance gains and overall health not weight lose (even though that will be a side affect to the challenge).  The number on the scale will not be our main focus.  More details to come this week but everyone in the Box should participate because remember:

you can not outwork a poor diet!

Hey Athletes,

I am excited to announce that we will be kicking off our use of Wodify, a simple and easy to use athlete performance tracking application designed specifically for our box.  We have been looking for a solution that will make performance tracking easier and help athletes take ownership of their performance. Lets give this performance tracking everything we have.

Logging results will not be optional.  When you arrive to class walk over to the wodify kiosk and sign in to class or log-in prior to class via your mobile phone. Upon completion of your workout walk over to the kiosk and quickly report your results.  This performance history will stay with you and will make it easy to know your 1-rep max and gauge the weights you should be lifting and hopefully motivate you to work harder and strive to do the workout as prescribed.

You should have received an email with your log-in credentials by now. Log in and make sure your gender, program and contact information is correct. Update any performance history you may have in your journal. Check out Wodify’s YouTube channel or knowledgebase for helpful How-To documents on setting up your account and downloading the app on your phone.

Strength, determination, motivation, confidence… these are just some of the words that come to mind when I think about what CrossFit Incite has done for me.  I am 33 years old and a mother of 4.  I had been running, going to the gym and playing volleyball, but something was missing.  I wanted better results from my workouts, but I didn’t know how. I began attending classes at CrossFit Incite in May of 2012. The thing I noticed most about the workout of the day was the intensity.  Going all out made a huge difference in my workouts. The workouts are tough!  Just getting through one was challenging not just physically but mentally as well.  More intensity = Better results and bigger rewards.  Since starting at CrossFit Incite, I have lost 15 pounds and over 16 inches. I cleaned up my eating habits by following the Paleo diet. When I started at CrossFit Incite I was using a band to help me do pullups.   In the past 8 months I’ve gone from using heavy bands to lighter and lighter bands and now I am able to do unassisted pullups.  No bands!  My mile time has improved by a minute and a half. I can now back squat 195 pounds, deadlift 245 pounds and shoulder press 95 pounds. I feel strong and confident!

Another amazing part of CrossFit Incite is the camaraderie.  We cheer each other on, help each other improve skills and work hard together. We are CrossFit family!

Starting CrossFit was one of the best things that I have ever done for myself. Seeing all these results keeps me motivated and coming back for more. CrossFit is not just an exercise program it’s a way of life!
