When and how did you get started ?
I started training at Reason since 2013, yup i can say i'm one of the OG members. Before Crossfit, I was just a typical guywho play basketball and do the typical globo gym workout, you know the chest day monday,leg day friday and the list go on and on. I also did muay thai and boxing on the side to get my cardio and stay lean.
After I graduated college, I gained GOOD 25 lbs of pure fat and Crossfit Reason was my panic button at time. Trying to do an exercise when you overweight wasn’t the best feeling in the world-especially when I walked into Crossfit gym for the first time and saw some of the members and coaches wearing a hard core gear and doing some of the movements that I’ve never heard of, and that was very intimidating. On the top of that, I also need to learn the CrossFit language like WOD, AMRAP, EMOM, etc. I remember my first workout was death by running and pull-ups, yap I nearly passed out after that workout and I said to myself that Crossfit workout isn’t like a walk in the park.
One of the reasons that keeps me going after I nearly passed out the workout is the community. I’ve surrounded by excellent coaches and supportive members or even a strangers who just dropping in for the day, They always push me out of my comfort zone in order for me to get better. Even when I finished last, they still gave me a round of high 5 :)
The coaching staff have been helping me with my weight lost journey since day 1. They provided encouragement, movement modificationwhen I can’t do the workout prescribed, uphold the workout standard and sometimes give me the famous “NO-REP” during the workout. Last but not least, all the coaching staff have become my good friends, mentors, nutrition advisor, and my loudest cheerleader.
My 4 years of training at REASON, I can only say that the community/ coaches at Crossfit REASONhas help me unleash my "inner-crossfit" and help me become a better athlete.
