I want to tell you about my journey. I am a former SUU football athlete and my playing weight was 285lbs. In December of 2015 I weighed 285lbs. but not very much muscle. I knew I needed to do something, so my wife got me a gym membership at Cedar City Crossfit for Christmas. I was committed, I started at the gym and it was hard getting back into it. I was sore, felt like the workouts were too tough, but I loved it because I wanted to see results and knew this would be the best for me. As I kept going to the gym I knew the workout would be worthless if I ate like crap so I needed to start eating better. I cut cold turkey Dr. Pepper, and made sure my portion sizes for meals were kept in check. I then started to spread out my meals so I would eat a good high fiber breakfast, a snack at 10am, light lunch, snack again at 3pm and good portion size dinner then I was done eating for the day. I started to crave more and more healthier foods because they made me feel full longer and I could notice a difference with how I felt. It was a process, I didn’t start to crave healthier foods at first but later I did, I didn’t see drastic results but good healthy results that built over weeks and months. It has been a year now and I have lost 70 pounds and feel great. I have more energy to play with my kids, and now I signed my wife up for Crossfit and she is doing awesome. I did this post not to boast, or show off, I simply did this to encourage, inspire and motivate those on the fence. The trainers at Crossfit helped me with form and technique and I couldn’t achieve my goals without them. I wish to express thanks to my wife, my family, Crossfit trainers, and Jesus Christ because I committed to take care of my body and have felt His help. If you’re hesitant about working out at a Crossfit gym, jump in with both feet and don’t look back. You will find a group of people cheering you on and supporting you.
I went today for a tester day to see if this gym would be a good fit for me and I’m excited! I worked so hard that my legs are still shaky but I felt the support of everyone. The main instructor was there to help and he did in such a professional way. They have a spot for kids to come and play while you work out which is huge for me seeing how I have a ton going on I can’t get another babysitter every day.
Definitely the best gym in town! Great owners and trainers who know what they’re are doing, how to help you achieve your fitness goals, and learn proper form! Crossfit is a great mix between lifting and cardio! I love it!
