Member Chris O’Hara sent me the following message and photo the other day. Stories like these are why all of the trainers at the Box do what we do. Thanks for your kind words, Chris!
“Recently went touring in the back country of Whistler, BC. Skinning up mountain after mountain to reach these remote couloirs was a brutal ordeal but I kept going back to my WOD’s and reminded myself how no matter how bad I feel during them the feeling of accomplishment once its over makes every ounce of pain and discomfort worth it. The views we took in and the descents we skied were my reward that day. In the end I PR’d in a way skiing the most challenging terrain of my life. Was it not for the mental and physical strength Crossfit has given me I would not have been able to see it through. I’ve had to get most of my work outs in at a gym across the street from my apartment lately due to time constraints but hope to be back to the Box soon.”
