Member Spotlight: Diana
I’ve been a member of CrossFit SAC since February 2014. I was first introduced to CrossFit by my daughter Elena. When she suggested checking out a few boxes and perhaps join, I thought she was nuts. She felt it was something a mother/daughter could do together. I didn’t know anything about CrossFit except for a few clips I saw on TV. I told her “I’m 56 years old; there is no way I can do that stuff.” She convinced me to just check them out. Elena and I visited three boxes. Once we walked into CrossFit SAC, talked with a coach and observed how the class was conducted, we knew CrossFit SAC was the right choice. Needless to say, once I went through the first intro class, actually brutal intro class, I was hooked. At the same time, I had been battling some health issues. I was pre-diabetic, had high cholesterol and high blood pressure. I’ve always been active, not always consistent, but not sedentary. Since I was active I didn’t understand why l was having these health issues?
After only 8 months at CrossFit SAC, my follow up doctor’s appointment revealed my blood sugar and cholesterol levels were normal and have remained that way. There was only one reason for this drastic change; it was the one thing I changed, joining CrossFit SAC. It turned out to be the best decision I have ever made for my health, nutrition, and fitness. Not only am I healthier, I feel better, fitter, stronger. The coaches at CrossFit SAC are so supportive and knowledgeable. Sometimes they have more confidence in me then I have in myself and I thank them for that much needed push, it has made me stronger. I’ve met some great people at CrossFit SAC and developed some lasting friendships. The group is always encouraging and willing to help out. My only regret…….I wish I’d started CrossFit sooner.
