Christian found CrossFit about two years ago. After a very long break from any physical activity, he like most people started lifting weights at his local globo gym. After all the supplements and bench press he found CrossFit from a couple of friends at work. Obviously he was very curious and began doing WOD’s at the gym. That didn’t last long because gym management didn’t like him dropping the weights, apparently it didn’t mesh well with the elliptical machines. He was more than excited when he found out a CrossFit gym was opening nearby. He went in and introduced himself immediately, he was hooked from the minute he walked in the door. After 9 months of training and helping where he could around the box, he decided to get his level 1, started coaching and hasn’t looked back.

Trevor was introduced to CrossFit in July of 2007 by a fellow firefighter and was hooked after doing his first WOD. He’s always been a person that likes to excel and be the best that he can be in anything that he does. CrossFit is challenging in itself but it also improved his performance in his job and other aspects of his life. As a firefighter/paramedic, he saw on a daily basis the average person beginning to decline in activity and motivation as they get older. With this comes decrease in mobility, strength and dependence on others. Trevor truly believes that CrossFit can and will make a better life for him and the others around him because of the physical and mental demand that it requires. CrossFit has changed his life and he wants to pass that onto others. We only live once and we need to live it to the fullest and be ready and dependable when life calls on us for either yourself, family and friends. Crossfit is the catalyst that will take you there.

Michelle Allegra stayed active when she was young by competing on an All-Star cheerleading team. She continued to cheer in college at the University of Miami. When she stopped cheering, she tried to stay in shape by working out on her own, but struggled with motivation. For years, she tried a mix of globo gym, yoga, a bit of running, and spinning, but nothing ever kept her interest well enough to stay consistent. When she started CrossFit in January of 2010, she was hooked! She knew she finally found her niche. The "constantly varied" aspect really kept her attention, along with the accountability to coaches and other athletes to show up and push yourself beyond your perceived limits. CrossFit felt like being part of a team again, and she convinced a handful of friends and family to make the same commitment. Seeing the change in people's fitness levels, confidence levels, and overall health made her eager to start coaching and making a difference in her community. She is a firm believer that ANYBODY can do CrossFit, and it's never too early or too late to start!
