Rebecca’s CrossFit9 Story

December 28, 2016

“I was told to go ‘grab a 400’ with the other foundations students. After I found out what that meant and with my Olivia Newton John sneakers tied tightly, I started out the door running with everyone. I got to about 50 meters when I stopped for some air. I walked the rest of the way to the stop sign (the halfway mark). A coach by the name of Zack ran to meet me and encouraged me to jog back to the box. I cried. I couldn’t. I was embarrassed and I could barely breathe. Zack stayed with me the entire time.

“I promised my wife I would give this CrossFit thing six weeks. Then, I could quit. Yay. That is how Kelly got me to go. I was totally going to quit after six weeks. I came home every night and cried because I did not want to be there, but I knew I only had to give it five more weeks. What a wimp I was!

“Thank goodness for the six week promise.

“Week two got a little better, week three, not so bad, week four…was I actually beginning to tolerate this? I was feeling a little stronger. I liked my new CrossFit9 family. Everyone was so nice and supportive. They made it EASY for me to keep going.

“A year and a half and thirty pounds ago I could not even jog 100 meters. This past weekend I completed a six mile, twenty-five obstacle “Savage Race” with my wife and CrossFit9 team.

“CrossFit9 works, cares, supports, lives and loves.”

Chris Goodwin’s CrossFit9 Story

December 28, 2016

“I never heard of CrossFit. I heard of cross training and crossdressing, but not CrossFit. That was approximately three years ago. From high school, to the military, to becoming a police officer, I always strived to stay in good shape. I grew up in the era of big muscle mags like Flex and Muscle & (nothing to do with) Fitness; mottos like ‘go big or go home’, ‘no pain, no gain’, ‘cardio is Spanish for no muscle’, and ‘a big muscle is a strong muscle’! It worked well in my younger days, but eventually it caught up, but I still felt I was doing alright. I was team leader on SWAT, had a 465# 1 rep max on bench, and the SWAT obstacle course posed no problem to complete.

“I was invited by chance to the CrossFit9 Open House at the old downtown location on MLK. The WOD was “Cindy”: a 20 minute AMRAP of 5 pull-ups, 10 push ups and 15 ‘sissy squats’ (as we called them at Gold’s Gym, brah!). I thought to myself after it was explained, piece of cake… I can do that while eating a sandwich. I did it. I sucked. Only six freaking rounds. I was tight and sore for over a flipping week, but I loved it and I wanted more! I was humbled. I stood a besmirched, humbled meathead.

“I did not return for several months. I eventually decided that I would, but first I wanted to get in shape before I joined. Funny/strange/weird. I wanted to train to get in shape… to train to get in shape! WTF. A few months later, I walked into the brand new location of CrossFit9, and I haven’t looked back. After a year I cancelled my meathead gym membership and drank the Kool-Aid. I still have a ways to go, but I’m enjoying the trip. My mobility has improved by leaps and bounds. My cardiovascular conditioning is ten times better than it was.

“However, the best asset at the ‘9’ is the people — trainers and members. I have met some of the coolest, funniest, and supportive people ever. I truly feel lucky and blessed. I’ve spread the word throughout the Saint Petersburg Police Department and some have even drank the Kool-Aid! I get asked about CrossFit9 at the department often. It’s truly a feeling of family when even my grandson can enter the box and instantly be in comfort mode.

“And yes… I will give him some of the Kool-Aid in his sippy cup! 🙂

“Love it here!”

Will Schantz’s CrossFit9 Story

December 28, 2016

“I was a pretty fit guy until I quit playing college tennis. That’s when my focus strayed from health and fitness. Most of my 20s were a mix of partying and minimal studying. CrossFitters would say I “scaled” my college experience… to just shy of a decade.

“My fiancee Rachael and I both graduated, and we looked for opportunities outside of Columbus, Ohio. In the meantime, we joined up at a Planet Fitness. I went some, ate some Tootsie Rolls, and really wasn’t doing much for myself in the way of fitness.

“When our opportunity to move to St. Pete came along, we jumped on it. Rachael started up at CrossFit9 before me, and I am super thankful she brought me into the box. My first WOD was a Saturday partner workout, and Lindsay invited me to join the class. It was my first real workout in quite a while, and afterwards I signed up for Foundations. The next few days were rough, as I hadn’t felt such soreness for a very long time.

“I am extremely grateful for the experience I have bad since coming to CrossFit9. It’s been almost a year since I started and I have already achieved things I couldn’t earlier in life. From here I only see CrossFit9 becoming an even bigger part of my life.

“All of us have a different backstory that brought us to CrossFit9, but it’s so inspiring to be in it together. For that I am eternally grateful and thankful.”
