Joining CrossFit Fenway was one of the best decisions I ever made regarding my overall health and fitness. The 2 months I spent training at CFF were some of the most educational and fun I’ve ever had working out.
I started at CFF with the goal of becoming more physically fit in preparation for the start of my US Army career. Law school had taken a toll on my body from long hours of reading case law, eating bad food, and not working out. I realized that I needed to get back in shape as quickly as possible.
Typically soldiers in the Army are tested on the maximum number of pushups and situps they can complete in 2 minutes followed by their time in a 2 mile run. I wanted to make sure that I performed to the best of my abilities on this test so I joined CFF and bought into Stacey and Eric’s programming, knowing full well they would help me reach my goals.
I joined Crossfit Fenway at the beginning of December 2009 and consistently worked out 4-5 times/week until the beginning of February 2010. I also applied the Paleo Diet to my eating as best I could. The results I saw during those two months were unparalleled by any training regimen I had previously undertaken.
In the end, the best part about CFF was the people I met.
- Eric and Stacey are both outstanding trainers. They are technically proficient individuals with a knack for effectively conveying concepts and skills to their students. Both of them made sure that I pushed myself to my limit each and every workout.
- Steve Rast is the person who introduced me to CrossFit on cold December mornings at Clemente field. Had I not contacted Steve via email, I never would have learned what CrossFit is all about.
- JT is an enthusiastic individual with a passion for fitness and firebreathing. JT was never afraid to call me out when he thought I was dogging it, and I’m that much better for it.
Moreover, each of these individuals set the tone for the types of people that workout at CFF on a daily basis. Their motivation and enthusiasm fosters a positive, judgment-free environment where people of all ages and abilities can become physically fit.
