I just want to give a HUGE thank you to everyone at CrossFit Charlottesville, trainers and members alike. I have had a blast these past several months getting to know many of you, and I am very thankful for the entire gym experience. Have a great holiday season, and I hope to see you all shortly down the road!

My Crossfit experience:
“I never thought I’d actually LIKE crossfit”.
But I did. It took me some time, but I did enjoy going to the gym: Having a hard-but-good workout and meeting great people. You all have been very nice to me and I’m sad I have to leave so soon after just getting to know you. Thank you all!!!
I sucked pretty bad at the l-sit/tuck holds.
11/5 for the pull-ups.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
FIRST CROSSFIT WORKOUT!
