Week of Success Stories

By: 321go 8 Comments


This week Centerville Crossfit will be featuring success stories. Very soon there will be a Tab on the site to view these also. 

Starting out will be Tonya! (and everyone note Becky in this picture… please comment)

"I had been semi-athletic all through high-school and some college.  I was on "again off again" with various trainers after college.  First of all, I thought on-ramp was going to be too easy for me, from what I had read in the description, but Matt reassured me that it was not going to be easy.  He was right!  It was sooo hard the first month, that I increased my life insurance.  I would go to bed praying that I would wake up in the morning, yet I came back for more.

    I remember walking into my first on-ramp class and the 5:30 class was finishing up.  I remember asking one of the trainers, "are we suppose to be able to do that after on-ramp?" and she said yes.  I said to myself, "yeah right and (rolled my eyes)"!  It takes a lot to get me excited and I am not easily impressed by anything, but this Crossfit is a tad addictive.  

    I am doing stuff in this class that I could never do as a teenager or in my early 20s.  Pull-ups, pushups…I would have never thought I could do several of them within a given time.  Oh yes, I could and should eat better than I currently do, but being involved in Crossfit at the level that I am now- I have still managed to lose 10lbs, definitely some inches, and I have more energy than I know what to do with at times.

    And yes, I am the resident complainer, but its therapeutic for me.  It's my way of talking myself into doing "Daniel" or "Cindy". I see myself taking Crossfit more seriously and increasing my intensity, decreasing my time, improving form and technique, and possibly competing at some point. 

A big thanks to the trainers and fellow crossfitters who motivate me and put up with my complaining and to Mark Bryner for mentioning Crossfit.

  7. Toyna–you should be so proud of yourself! You’re one tough gal who always pushes me to do better. The complaining is well-deserved–I think it’s a cover for how hard you’re really working. Keep up the hard work and the wisecracks! 😉 It’s when you’re silent during the WODs that I really get scared…

  8. I miss the 6:30 class because Tonya was always fun to workout with. I could let her complain for me! She definately made me push myself harder trying to keep up with her on weights (until I just gave up). Good job and keep up the hard work.
