I started at Gateway CrossFit in May of 2011 weighing 232 pounds, the heaviest I had been in ten years. Going into my training I was a bit intimidated after reading about the workouts, watching others in the gym, and knowing my current fitness situation. Mark and John both not only reassured me that I would be able to do the workouts;they spent time explaining and showing me what we were going to do and the correct way to lift and/or move during an exercise. The weight loss was a big deal to me at first, but the impact it has had on my daily energy and lifestyle has been the true reward. I wake up every day excited to get after it. I am very thankful for the time they have spent with me and the lifestyle I have now as a result of Gateway CrossFit. Mark, thank you for the support, hard work, and time spent with me over the last 3 months.
