I reluctantly joined Crossfit Spokane, “Crossfat” as I call it, after being encouraged by a co-worker who is sold on your program. I joined to get in better shape for water skiing. The results were evident; I had the best water ski season in 25 years. So why didn’t I stop participating in Crossfit once the water ski season began? That is the question I ask myself every night when I leave your gym exhausted and wringing wet. The answer is complicated, but lies in some combination of the results and the environment you have cultivated. It is almost addictive. I didn’t really think I was in that bad of shape when I joined, but before the first WOD was complete I knew otherwise. You guys have addressed my special needs and seem to really know how to balance between pushing to success without pushing someone overboard. Thank you, your staff and family for the knowledge and dedication. I have been working out at your gym now for six or seven months and have lost over 40 pounds. Now that we have worked off that weight I look forward to putting some of it back on in the form of muscle.
