My first experience with CrossFit

My first experience with CrossFit was when I was in my third year of college, back in 2007. I was introduced to it by one of my professors; he mentioned that it was high-intensity training that catered to military and law enforcement professionals. At that time I was going to enlist into the Armed Forces (after I received my degree). I love to try new things and explore different methods of training, so I decided to go to CrossFit.com. I watched two videos, Nasty Girls and Heavy Fran. I tried a few workouts at my local gym and it reminded of how I used to train back in high school for wrestling, which included a huge range of domains. I always felt like I have been to doing CrossFit for years, but I was lucky enough find out that it had a name and a amazing community.

My first crossfit experience

My first CrossFit experience was in September of 2015. A good friend invited me to come to her CrossFit gym where she had recently started coaching. It wasn’t the first time she had invited me, but it was the first time I took the invitation seriously. I had recently started homeschooling my 2 kids, who at the time were 8 and 10, and I remember my days being consumed with that. With the start of home schooling, came separation from my friends and other adults and lots of sitting around with my kids. I needed to get out. I needed to move. I had always put off fitness and knew it was time to change that. Thinking that joining a CrossFit class might be the change I was looking for, I decided to try it out. So, early on a Monday morning, I got up at 5am to go the 5:30 class. I am not a morning person by nature! The class was small and we all warned up together; then I was introduced to some CrossFit movements. I remember the workout pretty clearly. The wod was 3 rounds for time of a 400 meter run, 9 thrusters, and 18 burpees over the bar. Somehow I managed to finish, mostly out of pride. And pride kept me going back for the first week. I loved everything about it: the workout, the constant variety, and especially the people. It’s been 2 1/2 years and I haven’t looked back.

Get to Know Coach Leslie:

I was born and raised in Houston, TX and I am the oldest of 5 siblings, so naturally we grew up active through chasing each other in the backyard, or family sports at the park. Throughout High School I played soccer and in my sophomore year I joined an MMA gym where I did Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing and this is when my spark for fitness began because of how different the training was to anything I had ever done before.
