Skeptic would be the word I would use to describe my thoughts about crossfit just a few months ago. I always viewed crossfit as a sport for fit people and that only. As someone who suffers from prior leg injuries, I’ve always been told that crossfit could hurt me more.
I was referred to Flatland by a friend of mine. From the beginning, everyone has had open arms and embraced me. I find myself daily ranting to everyone I know about CrossFit. I can truly say that I have a bunch of new friends.
Flatland has saved my life in that I have learned to embrace my health. I am going on my 3rd month at flatland. I have lost 26 pounds. I have dropped a pant size. For the first time in my life, my blood pressure is back to normal and I’m on my way out of the Pre diabetic stage. My left leg is still a battle but with the weight coming off, it seems to get easier to maintain.
Today, I don’t just recommend crossfit to everyone in the world, but most importantly, I recommend flatland. The fellowship that is given is not offered everywhere. I thank God everyday that he led me here to be on this journey. I cannot wait to see what the future holds.
