My fitness journey has landed me at CrossFit Bradenton (CFB) about 2 years ago. Before coming to CFB, I was seeing a personal trainer, which was helping me with my weight loss goals but was expensive and I felt like something was missing. That something, being CrossFit, was introduced to me by my good friend Denise.
The first time I stepped into CFB I was welcomed by the warm smiling faces of other box goers and coaches. The coaches are all amazing and work hard at helping me achieve my fitness goals.
CrossFit has helped me attain achievable lifting goals. Although I am not one to RX many workouts, I am always challenged by the Olympic lifts, which was a big struggle when I started. I was really intimidated by the weights because I was at such a deficit. It took a while but I actually enjoy the lifting, believe it or not!
It is hard enough to stay on any diet/fitness routine, but to find a place you can go to that everyone is welcoming and eager to cheer you on, this really makes you want to show up.
Coaches/owners Paris and Beth have worked hard to create a box of friendly professionals with like minded fitness goals. I would highly recommend CFB to all levels of athletes!
