Congratulations to our December Member of the Month, Betsy (aka Sara Betz)!!!
When and why did you start CrossFit?
I started Crossfit in August 2017. I had always been intrigued by Crossfit but never felt that I could physically do it. I was talking to Sherry Mead one day and she said that she was headed to her Crossfit class. I couldn’t believe that she was doing Crossfit! She told me all about it and I realized that if she could do it, then I could do it. I drove to Crossfit that day and joined and am still going strong.
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to CrossFit?
My biggest challenge in Crossfit has been myself. Every time that I attend a class I feel like I can’t possibly complete the daily workout or am worried that I will be the last one done. I have realized that no one cares who is first or last or who can lift what-it doesn’t matter. The thing that matters is that you finish.
What has been your biggest accomplishment?
Every time I attend a Crossfit class is my biggest accomplishment. I have pushed myself in ways that I never would have done before Crossfit.
What advice would you give someone considering CrossFit?
I would tell anyone interested in Crossfit is to just try it. Truly the hardest part is walking through that door. Everyone is so encouraging and kind. The trainers acknowledge your accomplishments and efforts. It is always a positive place and I am proud that I am a part of it.
