Why am I participating in the Trebel Intramural Open?
I have been a client at Trebel/CrossFit Blacksburg for almost 4 years now, and I think that people know that I do not come from any type of athletic background at all, so starting CrossFit was scary enough, but then the thought of doing it in a competition format with people watching – terrifying!!
I really thought I would not be good enough to participate and that I would just embarrass myself. I signed up anyway, and it was a very encouraging and positive experience.
I got to see people that I don’t normally get to work out with and meet new people.
I was encouraged to push a little harder than I would in a normal workout, and I did a lot better than I thought I would.
This year, when I found out we were doing teams, I was very excited to work with and encourage others, to get a little bit out of their comfort zone and see just how strong they can be.
I understand you may be scared, I was!
But sign up anyways, or at least find a way to get involved with this great community.
You will not regret it!
