They love me and I love them

I had a preconceived notion about Crossfit long before I even considered it. I had heard rumors and based on people I saw who did Crossfit, I assumed it would never be anything I would even want to try. In addition, I am super overweight and I thought Crossfit was way out of reach. “There is no way I will be able to keep up” kind of attitude. MOB in particular changed my opinions. I met the owner, Yo, first and she didn’t judge me. Just offered the opportunity to try Crossfit. So I did. What I found is a community of people who accepted me even though I am overweight. They love me and I love them. Everyone is so supportive and everyone is different. Each person has a different goal. We can all do our workouts together regardless of where we fit in the exercise spectrum. So, I encourage you to give MOB a try. It is a wonderful place with amazing people. You work at your own pace and do what you can and you feel awesome when you leave. I never thought I would enjoy working out…maybe “enjoy” is a stretch but I’m excited to go to MOB and every day is a different workout. I am getting stronger physically and mentally. Check it out!!! You will not regret it!
