“When I left Hoosier CrossFit I felt a lot of grief. The amount of knowledge and personal growth that I gained in that gym is more than I can wrap my mind around at times. There is so much that I loved about it. I’ll give ya my top three…
1. The coaches COACHED.
2. We were a tight knit family.
3. They forced us to mobilize.”

“CrossFit has given me guidance on how to eat correctly. Paleo/Zone allows balances in my diet in a way that feeds my body the right amount of protein, greens, and healthy fats that will help my performance and keep me lean. No more binging on cardboard. CrossFit has changed me from an image obsessed hungry person, to an athlete finally comfortable in her own skin. I will be a CrossFitter for life, and when I want to put the heels back on, do my make-up, get my hair did, and strut my stuff, I will do so feeling confident that I am not just a pretty face….but that I can also kick your ass.”

“Confidence can be built and enhanced by keeping your positives and successes in the forefront. When confidence is shaky, there is a tendency to fall back to the negatives, to mistakes and deficiencies (i.e. “I missed again”, “Why can’t I do this?”). Thoughts and focus need to be purposely directed to your positives. Before starting a practice or event, instead of focusing on what you missed, remind yourself of the things you did right, that you could do again.
