Scared and Embarrassed...I Signed Up Anyway

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!
This is one of my favorite pictures! You can see me finishing my first ever 5K/ mud run. It was also my first real experience with this great community. That was even more awesome just for the fact that everyone waited to cross the finish line until we were all together, I had only been with this community for a couple months at that time!
