I love the feeling of improving at a skill and CrossFit provides that every day. It’s not just lifting heavier weights or rowing faster – it’s improving small aspects of one of the movements or gaining the ability to do something you couldn’t do before (I don’t think I ever held a jump rope before starting CrossFit). There’s always something to get better at and the coaches are always there to show you how to make improvements.
It’s also important to me that my kids see me prioritizing exercise and health. They’re always curious about “dad’s workout place” and I hope that interest in exercise is something they carry with them throughout their lives.
