Favorite fitness quote:
“No man has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training….what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”  (Socrates)

Trainer Introduction

Paige Corley, M.S., C.S.C.S., CrossFit Level 2

This quote really made an impact on me.  I didn’t take it as one must be able to get the fastest time or lift the heaviest weight or even look a certain way; it is more about creating a positive relationship with your body simply through being physical.

I have been in the fitness business for over 20 years now.  I started as a muscle-head-gym-rat and then transitioned to leotard-wearing-group-exercise-instructor and ended up in the corporate management side of things. I got into Yoga, tried Pilates, participated in triathlons and even ran a couple of marathons. But, never in my life, have I been in such great shape since beginning CrossFit.

I would be a liar if I said I wasn’t intimidated by all the fast times and heavy weights and muscular bodies associated with CrossFit.  And I would be a liar if I said there aren’t still days when I leave feeling a bit defeated.  I have come to find that this is all part of building a stronger body and mind.

Sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves is to enter a situation that is a bit scary and intimidating.  It is often through this type of experience that we find out how strong we truly are. And I don’t mean a fast time, a heavy weight or a muscular body; I mean a strong spirit and the confidence that goes with getting everything we can from our physical effort that day.

This, to me, is CrossFit.
