Our community is full of smiling faces. I had a friend that recently dropped by for a workout, and she remarked that everyone seemed so darn happy despite going through a workout. True story!
Among all of those happy people and smiling faces, Becca stands out. She’s been a stellar part of our community since the beginning of 2018. Fun fact – she actually has the most attendances of any member throughout 2018. Talk about committed! We knew that though because she was seriously successful before she even got to CrossFit Undeniable.
What brought me to CFU was that I was looking for switch up my workout routine. I had previously been severely overweight and lost quite a bit of weight on my own through going to a typical gym. I got pretty bored with the normal gym atmosphere and wanted to do something else.
She found out about CFU after hearing about CrossFit from a friend and doing some digging online.
A friend of mine did CrossFit and recommended it. She told me that it is important to find a gym with a great community. So I Googled CrossFit gyms near me and CFU had AMAZING reviews.
Still, even after reading a bunch of positive reviews, it can be hard to actually walk in the door and get started. Look, even if you’ve had immense success on your own, coming into a new gym with a new community…it’s intimidating.
Thankfully, the awesome community made it easier.
I remembering my first thought after I left my first workout was how nice everyone was. Everyone in the class was really helpful and supportive through the workout. That impression hasn’t changed. I love how supportive and encouraging everyone is through a grueling workout.
Becca shared something I think we can all relate to – nerves.
I think for the first three months I was really nervous for every workout. Each workout had so much that I had to learn. Success for me was pushing myself through each workout and not giving up.
I can definitely relate to that. Every time I hear the clock go “3, 2, 1, beep” my heart starts beating faster. Those nerves might not every go away, but it’s weird – you actually start to enjoy that feeling!
Becca has been incredibly successful (seriously – she deserves a lot of credit). Now, she’s primarily focused on strength as part of our Powerlifting class, but that’s just the start.
Right now I am working on improving my strength through the Power lifting classes. I also feel like I have so much I want to improve so each workout I try to focus on one area that I want to get better at. For example, on Monday with the Veterans Day workout, my area of focus was pull-ups.
When asked about her favorite memory, she shared the following:
I have so many good CFU memories. I think my favorites are the Hero WODs. Operation Red Wings stands out as one of my favorites. The workout is so long and tough but the people supporting you through it and the reason behind the workout make it so special.
For those that don’t know, Operation Red Wings is one of the toughest workouts we do all year, but it has an extra special meaning behind it as well. I totally agree – Hero WODs are insanely difficult, but the “Why” behind them is so strong it’s impossible not to push yourself.
Kudos on your amazing success thus far, Becca! You truly have an inspiring story to tell, and we’re honored to be a small part of it.
