CrossFit Route 7 has been my sanctuary for the last 2 plus years since I moved to the U.S. Being a friendly Canadian that moved across the continent I was looking for a new home. I emailed a few boxes and BJ was the first person to respond, welcome me in for a workout, and invite me to come see the place.
I had been doing CrossFit for about 3 months before I moved down here and instantly fell in love with the community and the people that I was surrounded with at CFR7. All the coaches and members pushed me to improve each day through the classes and personal training time.
I never thought before joining CFR7 that I would ever want to get my CFL1 or become a coach someday, but I have followed my passion and have pursued it over the past few months. After receiving my Level 1 cert I started training in the coaches practice at Ballston and have really enjoyed it. Helping new members at CFR7 over the past few months, before I’ve even started coaching a class, has been tons of fun. I have enjoyed more and more helping others find their passion for fitness as I have over the past 2 years.
Each day that I get to spend in the box, nothing of the outside world can effect my mood or demeanour. I go home to my wife at the end of the day a better man because of CrossFit.
