“Throughout my adult life fitness has been a major focus for me. I’ve always been a big box gym member, not really having a plan or setting goals. I would just go through the motions and call it a day. Finally, after being bored with my normal routine, I walked into my first CrossFit “Box”. Luckily for me, it was LCF. Once I did, I was hooked. Nothing has made me feel stronger, more confident and more anxious to get back to the gym than being a member at Lowry CrossFit. The members are a tight knit community that resemble a large extended family then a gym. I became a coach to advance my knowledge of the sport and to help other people accomplish their fitness goals.”
