SPOTLIGHT ON – Julie H.
When did you join CrossFit San Ramon and why?
I Started CrossFit around 3 years ago when I lived in Michigan as a way to work out and meet new people. I joined CrossFit San Ramon in July 2015 when I moved back home to California. I was referred by one of my best friends and I love it here!
What positive changes have you felt, noticed, etc.?
Where do I even start! Physically I am stronger than I have ever been. I am able to do things I never thought possible but the best changes have been mentally and emotionally. I went through a very difficult divorce last year and CrossFit literally saved my life. Every emotion I had, I put it on the bar and squatted it, jerked it, lifted it, and got stronger! Getting through the challenging WODs showed me that I could get through anything, in and out of the gym. My life has changed drastically since starting CrossFit and that would never have happened in a conventional gym.
What keeps you coming to CrossFit San Ramon?
The community. The people here are amazing! My first class I was welcomed with open arms. Everyone cheers for each other and pushed you to be your best! I always walk out of gym in a great mood!
Who’s signed up for the Lurong Challenge? It’s going to be EPIC!
