What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since
starting CF? (before / after)

drinking habits, coming to the gym has kept me more honest with myself and
learning to hold myself accountable.
What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on
something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
– Coming from a gym where i worked out alone, or go on long runs alone… finding
a place where all the other athletes socialize and become friends has been an
awesome new experience

– Doing a bar muscle up was pretty cool and a bit unexpected the day it happened.
 
Any advice for people just getting started? 
– Be consistent, cause when you arent… the soreness is real.
