What CrossFit Means to us
Training enables our members to do what's most important in their lives.
"Crossfit is more than a workout program or an exercise. It is a sport, a community, and a new way of living. Crossfit, at its basest level, is a means by which I can be a better and more disciplined employee, student, father, husband, and follower of Christ."
"Crossfit has given me a different outlook on fitness, it is a journey. Crossfit has challenged me mentally and physically. I'm learning to work through my weakness both physically and mentally as I grow in strength and ability. I have had to accept defeat on occasion, but I've also been able to rejoice in many more triumphs. It's nice to not be alone in my journey as well. Working with others, where we are all on the same journey has been an encouragement in so many ways.
Along with all those benefits, it has become another way for my husband Rob and I to connect. We have been married for almost 12 years and have never shared a hobby. This is the first time ever we are doing something together. It has brought about great conversation and better health for our entire family."
"I actually wasn't interested in CrossFit, as I had my own routine at home and didn't want to add CrossFit into my hectic life. My brother finally talked me into going to a class and from that moment I was hooked. I have been going to the 5:30 am class for a year now. I heard stories about CrossFit and it wasn't something that I thought that I would like. However, when I had a few classes with Clayton, I really liked his approach and put those stories about CrossFit to bed.
With CrossFit you don't have to be super fit and there is no judgement. Everything can be modified to your level and you will quickly start to see the improvements in yourself. You will conquer fears and be surprised at your accomplishments, which will keep you coming back each day."
"Crossfit has made me better at life in general. It has improved my confidence, made me mentally and physically stronger. General everyday physical activities are much easier now. It has made hiking and hunting much more enjoyable. I have the stamina to hike up steep mountains and leave my hunting friends sucking wind trying to catch up. I feel better than I did at 25 and I was in the ARMY in "good" shape. I wish crossfit was around when I was in high school."
I have enjoyed CrossFit 43 North from day one. I love watching my progression and I love my new family. We are there to help each other get and stay healthy. The coaching is great and Clayton keeps it fun, but at the same time will challenge me.
CrossFit is a personal journey that you need to experience yourself. If you want to get healthy, strong and meet some incredible people, then give CrossFit a try. I would also pass on some advice that was given to me when I started. They told me I have to give it at least 6 months before I could honestly say I liked it or hated it. Great advice! I was hooked after 2 months!
