After spending the majority of my life as an over-weight couch potato, I lost 65 pounds with Weight Watchers. However, I knew that I was not a healthy person nor did I have the beach body I wanted. My friend kept inviting me to try his CrossFit gym and I was hesitant. Finally one day, his wife texted me that she was meeting me at the gym the next day. She did not give me a chance to say no. My first CrossFit workout was brutal. The next day I went back and fell in love with it! Five years later, I repeated my very first CrossFit workout and cut my time from 12:26 to 3:45 and I am now doing a much harder version of the workout.
