This Week At A Glance. April 19, 2021 - April 25, 2021
High Standards. Happy Members.
“ I started CrossFit at the age of 53. I was overweight, out of shape and almost completely debilitated by neck pain. I was also terrified; pretty sure I couldn't do CrossFit. At CrossFit Calgary, I found coaches who are extremely knowledgable and who care enough to help me achieve success safely. I became a member of a community of people who are unconditionally supportive of each other. I have never worked harder or had as much fun doing it. Thank you CFC. ”
“ CrossFit and CFC have not just made me more physically fit, they have improved my mental and emotional fitness as well. CrossFit is my therapy. It's the insanity that keeps me sane. ”
“ I joined CrossFit Calgary 3 years ago when I moved to Calgary for my surgical residency. CFC fosters a great sense of community and helps me stay balanced during stressful times. Every single coach is phenomenal, both in attitude and ability. There is strong emphasis on safety and proper body mechanics, which I think is paramount in this sport. CFC is more than a gym, and I am very thankful to be a part of it. ”
“ Approaching my 3rd year anniversary with CrossFit Calgary and just put my 59th birthday in the rear view mirror. The latter is hard to believe considering the changes and results I’ve experienced with the CrossFit Calgary team: 295 lb deadlift for multiple reps; 195 lb bench, again multiple reps, weights I’ve not lifted at any age prior. Also, movements never completed at any age; stable squat snatch, squat clean and, of course, double unders. I value these accomplishments on the CrossFit Journey but prize subtle changes even more; improved posture, increased lean muscle, lowered resting heart rate & BP, reduction in body fat, clothes fit better, significant increase in cardiovascular and muscular endurance...... Changes that enable me to continue outdoor pursuits, not to mention easily manage household chores such as the semi annual change of tires and wheels. I have the opportunity to travel and attend other CrossFit boxes. You and the team you’ve selected create a uniquely focused and supportive environment in which to learn, grow and move ‘the needle’ toward health. Thank you, well done. ”
