My Journey into CrossFit started about 2.5 years ago when I saw the 2017 CrossFit Games on television. I was living in Alabama at the time, at a point in my life where I lacked direction and was searching for an athletic outlet, I was channel surfing with my Dad and we stumbled across The Games. Watching Mat Fraser just completely dominate the competition is what ultimately started my love for this sport.

I joined a CrossFit gym in Alabama the next week. About a month later I moved to Texas. That was when I found CFRR and everything changed. I believe they are what changed me the most. My entire daily routine changed; from my diet, to how I prepare for workouts.

They constantly find new ways to challenge their athletes and push them to grow and become better. Now coming into my third year of CrossFit, my fitness journey is far from being done and my obstacles and goals have become increasingly difficult from years 1 and 2. But the overarching goal remains the same. I want to compete at the CrossFit Games! That goal and that mindset, from day 1, has undoubtedly allowed me to push myself further than I ever thought I could.
