Thought I’d write a little something about my experience with SXF.
When SXF first started down at Tompkins Park I made an excuse the first week and went to the pub instead!! When my partner Rob did finally manage to drag my lazy butt down there, my version of a squat was laughable!! I've never been into fitness and had never seen anything like what we were doing. I was so sore, that I was still tender by the following Sunday when I was heading down for another session.
I decided to join when the box opened in Willetton and have been addicted since. There are so many positive's that I have gained from the SXF community. I feel healthier, happier and more energetic than I ever have. I can’t believe that six months on, I am still actually going and by choice!! Once I got past the initial weeks of wanting to make excuses about how I couldn't be bothered, I started to enjoy it more and more.
I have made friendships with people in what was a different world to me before. The community at SXF couldn't be any better. So much so that I now live with another wonderful member!! Everyone is so positive and willing to help you every step of the way. I had major insecurities at the beginning, and was embarrassed to do anything in front of people before I realised that no one was there to put me down.
I now feel bad if I miss a day and watch a lot of what I eat. I am so much more conscious of how I treat my body and thanks to that I’m 10kg's lighter these days!! Each trainer has different roles that you play and it works so well. I find myself talking and discussing CrossFit all the time, I’m so passionate about it. I have learnt so much not just about CrossFit but myself too. The introduction of trigger point has also made a major difference in my training.
I couldn't be any more grateful to Rob for giving me the push to change my lifestyle so dramatically; everyone around me has noticed the difference. Or be more thankful for the never ending effort the trainers put into each and every member. You truly care about everyone and strive to be as helpful as you can, always giving attention that you wouldn't get anywhere else.
The SXF community is an achievement that you trainers should be so proud of.
The life I’m enjoying more now is thanks to you and will never be forgotten.
Thank you for all you have done.
