   I found CrossFit in early 2015 when my sister encouraged me to attend a class with her. I started to fall out of my active lifestyle and am not afraid to embrace a good challenge… additionally, I was done using the excuse of having no energy and being overweight as just a condition of getting older.

   What I found after the first class (although I was nervous and intimidated) was the most life changing experience I could have ever imagined! The classes were fun, the community was encouraging, and the transformation, both mentally and physically, has been life changing. The more classes I attended, the more I got out of it. And it never gets old as it’s something new and more challenging every day.

   With seeing the CrossFit methodology work so brilliantly, I couldn’t wait to open Ada Valley CrossFit (along with the help of some great friends and family) in this community that I live in. I hope to share the fun, the healthy lifestyle and the comradery with all of you soon.

 

“Constantly Varied, Functional Movements, High Intensity”

   I discovered CrossFit a little over a year and a half ago.  My friend had been inviting me for a good 7 months before I finally gave it a try.  I had all of the excuses not to try it like "That isn't for me", "It's too hard", and "I'm not in good enough shape to do that."  Wow, was I wrong.! I  instantly fell in love.  I found that all I had to do was show up and work hard, and it wasn't long before I was doing things I never thought I could do.  It wasn't about me compared to everyone else.  It was about my own progress.   I really enjoyed the community and also the sense of accomplishment I felt after finishing the workout.   I found myself enjoying the competition and camaraderie that I had been missing since high school sports.   I wish I would have tried it sooner."

   Growing up in the Greater Grand Rapids area (Lowell), I was involved in sports at a young age. In high school, I played football, was on the powerlifting team and played baseball. After high school, I started coaching football and baseball and grew a passion for coaching. After 3 years, I began my career and moved to Kenosha, Wisconsin. After a few years there, I was looking for something to get me back into shape. In January of 2013, I found CrossFit. It was a natural fit because of my background in sports, and more so, coaching. CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting have made a huge impact on my life and I want to share that impact with others. Ada Valley CrossFit is the perfect place to do just that.

   My athletic background started just 12 miles south of Ada Valley CrossFit. Born and raised in the small town of Caledonia, outside of Grand Rapids, I played Football and Lacrosse for the varsity programs.  Though I thought of myself as “fit” growing up, it wasn’t till February of 2015 I would humbly find out what being “fit” meant.  With over 2 years of CrossFit experience under my belt, I continue to work towards being the best version of myself; physically, mentally and emotionally.  CrossFit is so much more than just “Constantly Varied, Functional Movements, at High Intensity” and Ada Valley is so much more than just a Box.  With the CrossFit methodology backed by such a supportive and positive community you have a recipe for a life changing journey.  It’s a journey that all of us at Ada Valley CrossFit are on and we are loving every step!
