"CrossFit changed (saved?) my life"
A year ago I arrived at Crossfit Gantry feeling desperate. I was 30 pounds overweight and suffering from multiple ailments, including knee and foot pain and carpal tunnel. I’d tried a variety of exercise types but saw few improvements.
When I met Jay I told him I was falling apart. He said: “I’m glad you’re here. I have been gathering the wisdom of physical excellence for centuries and will define the right path for you.” And that was what I needed to hear. Even if he didn’t use those exact words. I was so out of shape that i couldn’t do 20 squats at the intro class, but Jay said: Yes, you can. In fact, this whole time, the only person who doubted my ability to do handstands, back squats and double unders – was me. Not the coaches, not my fellow Crossfiters. With their support I went on to achieve more than I imagined possible. The pain went away as I acquired strength and learned proper form.
I am so grateful to my community at Crossfit Gantry for helping me become the strongest and healthiest I’ve ever been.
