Say About Crossfit Ubiquity

“When I started CrossFit I hadn’t been able to workout in nearly three years. I had spent that time being a broken mess, dealing with a bulging disc in my back and bursitis in both legs. It was a culmination of a decade of back pain and issues that were never properly addressed. I thought I was genetically destined to have a “bad back”, despite having exercised consistently since I was a teen. Once I started CrossFit, I immediately realized how inadequate my idea of exercising had been. I use my entire body in CrossFit workouts and feel muscles that I never felt in previous fitness routines. I initially wanted to wait to do CrossFit and get in better shape first. But I knew the workouts could be scaled my level and I would likely be safer working out with a coach watching my form. The progress I made in the first six months of CrossFit would have taken me utterly FOREVER to achieve on my own. It wouldn’t have been a fraction of the fun I’m having with CrossFit and for the first time I don’t look forward to rest days. Working out has been a part of my life for a long time, but I’ve never enjoyed it this much or been this consistent. Pam and Jake are excellent coaches; the dichotomy they falsify of a comfortable and challenging learning environment will take your body from weak sauce to awesome sauce at terminal velocity.”

“Approximately one year ago we decided that we needed to make a change in our lives. We had heard of crossfit but were unsure of exactly what it was and what it entailed. We had friends that were doing crossfit and talked about it but they were elite athletes in very good shape. So we were a little apprehensive about it. We both needed a workout routine that was structured and well balanced. Joining a “standard” gym was pretty much out of the question. We wanted a good instructor that could plan and lead our workouts…we needed a coach. A couple of friends convinced us to try it out one day and we’ve been hooked ever since. We joined the box and began going coming three days a week. Now, we’re going 4-5 times a week and even doing double workout of the day (WODs) on our extra inspirational days. The progress we have made and the results we’ve seen are absolutely amazing. Coach Pam knows her athletes and motivates them to perform to their true potential. She has pushed us to our limits, while maintaining a strict adherence to our form and execution. Crossfit is an individual workout that is supported by a community of athletes. Every goal is supported and encouraged by our fellow athletes. Crossfit is tough, it’s dirty, and it can be downright miserable. But the feeling we get when we complete a WOD, or a personal best is one of the most intrinsically rewarding experiences that we don’t get from other types of workouts or gyms. Crossfit is functional fitness, the movements and conditioning we gain are applicable to our everyday life.”

“I’ve always been a pretty active person. Throughout high school I was involved in various types of recreational sports. A year ago I decided to take my fitness to a whole new level, but soon found myself reaching a plateau after awhile. I felt as if I wasn’t making any progress from my workouts at the gym and I knew that some changes had to be implemented. This is around the time my friend introduced me to CrossFit. I had heard of it before, but wasn’t sure exactly what it was. At this point I figured it couldn’t hurt to give it a shot. All it took was one class and I was instantly hooked. To be honest, I was intimidated at first and most of the skills were unfamiliar. Coach Pam guided me through everything while implementing proper form and technique. She encourages me throughout all workouts and has helped me push past my limits. I found myself always fighting for one more repetition at the end of each workout. Not only is Pam a great coach with an immense amount of knowledge about fitness, she’s also an incredible CrossFit athlete who I aspire to be like one day. My mindset about fitness has taken a complete 180 degree turn. Instead of wanting to change my physical appearance and get “toned”, I now have the goals of gaining strength and endurance. Most people tell me that they’re hesitant about trying out CrossFit because it’s too intimidating or too difficult. Coach Pam is great at modifying the workouts to individual abilities and knows when it’s time to step it up to a new level. CrossFit does not only provide me with a good workout, it always has given me the most welcoming and unique circle of friends. I’ve never been involved in an activity where everyone cheers the loudest for the person that finishes last. I consider all the other participants at CrossFit Ubiquity some of my really good friends, despite the age and fitness differences. Joining CrossFit has made such a positive impact on my life and I intend to stick with it for the rest of my life.”

“My path to CrossFit Ubiquity will be familiar to many.  I was very active as a youth and a three sport athlete in high school. Once I got to college, I stopped playing sports and working out, mostly because I was burnt out.  For the next 18 years, I followed a path of laziness, with the occasional foray into “I’m getting too fat, I need to do something”. Then I would deficit diet, do the recommended “30 minutes of cardio with resistance training 3–5 times a week”, eventually plateau because I stopped losing weight, while also getting completely sick of the same routine (cardio machines and circuit training). I did this three times in those 18 years. I was a soccer fit 185 lbs. out of high school in 1994. I believe I got up to around 250 in 2007. I then did the aforementioned routine of diet, exercise, getting sick of it, and plateauing at 235 lbs. Enter Crossfit. I watched videos and read workouts online. It looked different so I decided to give it a try. This is what I’ve learned: When I walked in, everything we have to do is assigned on a whiteboard and I am never asked to do anything else. This is great for mental preparation as no one is surprised by a new movement while exhausted. Classes take an hour and most workouts are 10 – 15 minutes long.  Every workout is different and we rarely repeat them. Every workout is a combination of about 50+ movements combining weightlifting, cardio, and gymnastics.  Each of these movements gets scaled dependent upon your level of fitness and mobility. Therefore, every workout is hard for everybody. I rarely end a workout without having to walk around and catch my breath and I’m in shape now. I never get bored and I have yet to plateau.  I get to workout/suffer with other people. This makes me feel like I need to keep up. Everybody is encouraging, I have yet to see or hear any hyper-competitiveness. I get to lift weights.  Free weights on a barbell. I get to Olympic weight lift. This is fun. This is the only exercise program that I’ve done consistently in my adult life. My goal is still to become leaner, but my motivation is to become stronger and do the workouts faster. Most importantly, I’ve been taught proper form and technique on every exercise we do, invaluable knowledge that I can take with me if I ever stop, which I don’t plan to right now. It’s been 1 year and 3 months since I started and I wouldn’t think of missing a day. I just weighed under 210 lbs. for the first time in seven years, just dropped down two pant sizes, and have had people make it a point to tell me how good I look. If you stick with it, eat right, and sleep well, this stuff works.”
