  1. What advice would you give to anyone wanting to start at CrossFit Passion? 

Don’t be scared or intimidated by CrossFit. It is a great program no matter what fitness level you’re at and scaling makes it accessible for everyone.  The coaches and programming at our box are top notch and everyone is able to work with the coaches to modify the workout to their level of ability while still making sure they are pushing themselves each day.

Most important is to get started and keep coming back during the early weeks.  I put off prioritizing my health for years to the point where I was horribly out of shape.  Those first few weeks were rough, but continuing to stick with it has paid off majorly for me and my family
