A message from Farrah:

I have always considered myself to be “in shape.” I have always loved outdoor activities and have managed to maintain a fairly healthy diet. CrossFit has taught me that being “in shape” is more than a look and a few healthy meals. I can remember my first experience, which was a fit camp class that CrossFit Virtus was offering. We performed a ten minute workout. It was nothing more than Burpees, Kettlebell Swings and Lunges. I can remember feeling every possible emotion within those 10 minutes. So many thoughts ran through my head. I couldn’t believe how unfit I was. When I left the gym, I had to pull over until I could pull myself together. Two days later I could not wait to go back. I had never experienced something so difficult, yet so rewarding. I felt like if I could go in and complete whatever the workout may be, I could tackle any other task I would be faced with in a day. That feeling has never gone away. Each day I look forward to pushing myself beyond what I think I am both physically and mentally capable of. CrossFit has given my confidence to continuously challenge myself at work and in life. I am thankful for the strength, experiences and relationships CrossFit Virtus has brought into my life.
