I’ve been crossfitting for just over a year and can honestly say it’s helped me in ways I could never have imagined a short time ago. Like many people, I come from a reasonably athletic background. I ran track competitively at the state level in high school and was even able to continue into college before multiple knee injuries forced me to quit. At this point I did what most young men invariably do at some point and hit the weight room to try and stay “in-shape.” I saw great results doing this and would likely have stayed with it for years in happy ignorance if not for a surprise visit from my brother Austin.
Kari is a mom you can identify with; she has very little time to get away from her full time job and hectic life with her toddler at home. Kari has dreams, though, and she gave CrossFit a chance to help her finally get a routine down with a workout program that may make those dreams come true. Kari has documented the scary beginnings of starting On Ramp, plus the empowerment she felt after Completing it.
When Molly first came to Hoosier CrossFit, she didn’t know what she knows now: that she is capable of doing anything she sets her mind to. After her stroke 13 years ago, she had to get along in life while one side of her body had no feeling; this made many movements feel impossible to achieve. Fast forward a year later, she’s doing things her body was unable to do: jump roping, jumping onto 4″ targets, performing pull-ups, running and more! She is our 2013 Success story because we are inspired by her diligence in never giving up.
