US Marine Joey Garrett is our Athlete of the Month!
Take us back to your first WOD... what was it, and how did it feel?
It felt great that everyone shared their motivation AND misery. It appeared everyone had a shared goal of maximizing their individual efforts and encouraged others to do the same.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CrossFit (before/after)?
I had gained almost 80 lbs in the 11 years after retiring from the military. Within 100 WODs, I had already lost 25 lbs and felt stronger and definitely had more energy.
What sort of changes in your life have you experienced from taking on CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
I did not expect my body to feel so sore and so good at the same time. You get to the point that you feel bad if / when you miss a WOD. Surprisingly, Crossfit has helped with my endurance while jogging.
Please share with us your favorite CrossFit / CFT moments.
Anytime I can reach PR and/or see others do the same. It means we are working hard to challenge ourselves and thus; changing ourselves.
