“I have done so many things on vacation that I never dreamed I could do! I've hiked, went on a bumpy Jeep ride (goodbye, back issues), and yes, even wore a bikini with confidence! So grateful that I began this journey to better health 3 years ago!” - Lauren
“I’m over the moon with xfit. I started Dec 2018. I was hardly able to do a step-up onto the kids’ little mattresses. So much knee pain. I have osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. After a lifetime of sports and related injuries I’d all but given up working out, save for a bit of walking and occasional cycling on level terrain. Now I row 1000 meters 3x a week, I can do modified exercises, 9” box step-ups with weights etc. But more important than anything else, I can do everyday things more efficiently! While I struggle to reach my goal of “getting up off the floor nicely” in 2019, I suddenly realized I achieved a bunch of other goals I didn’t even think about.” -Cath
“When I first walked into CFI I was at the lowest I had ever been in my life. My husband had just tragically and unexpectedly passed away 5 months prior. I was battling depression, drinking too much and gaining weight rapidly.
I remember being so intimated by seeing people doing muscle ups on the rig. I looked at my friend who came with me and said “there’s no way I can do this”. However, I knew something in my life needed to change and thought this would be a good start.
On my very first day, we had to do box jumps and me being me basically face planted right onto the wooden box. I laughed it off even though I was so embarrassed! Leave it me to fall on day 1! However, I very consistently went to classes. It quickly became the one thing I had to look forward to each day.
Aside from taking care of my kids, CFI became the reason I got out of bed every day. I felt myself becoming stronger, not only physically but emotionally and mentally as well. I realized I wasn’t wanting to drink anymore. I didn’t need to. I was naturally happier and on the days I wanted to quit and give up I could sense my husband by my side pushing me to keep going. I knew I was making him proud. Flash forward 7 months, and my entire life has changed, simply because of CFI. Fitness doesn’t just make you physically stronger, it can transform everything around you! I’ve made new friends and I’m no longer the girl who’s husband died. I am a new version of me. I feel Iike I can conquer the world and I look forward to getting out of bed every single day now, even the days I don’t go to the gym.
Give me another year or so and I’ll be able to do one of those muscle ups I was terrified of!” -Casey
