I just wanted to check in and let you know that I officially hit 1 year at crossfit KOP on Oct. 8th. As the story goes, I sat next to some cross-fit dude on a plane from Nashville, and the guy informed me he won some competition and was signing a contract with Reebok. Based on his physique and the conversation we had, I googled cross-fit and ended up seeing cross-fit KOP (as you know that guy was Rich Froning, and I was sitting next to the King of cross-fit).
I wanted to tell you that cross-fit KOP has changed my life, let me be clear its the KOP part that made it that significant; cross-fit alone may have had an impact, but it is the KOP community that has changed it. KOP has impacted me in two significant ways. First, physically I went from not being capable of an unassisted pull-up, to now rxing workouts that require 100 pull-up's unassited (Yes!!! and a muscle up is in my future). The physical aspect has feeling stronger, eating better, thinking more clearly and, by the way you have cost me a lot of money in buying new pants and shirts (went from a 36" pant to 32" and now need slim cut shirts). The second way, and probably more important reason is has impacted my life is by the friends I have made. I did not grow up around here and moved many times in my work career, so my social network is limited. I have never never found a way to meet such great quality people that have a diversity that is so much fun, the folks in your box are really talented and make the community so vibrant.
At the time I joined cross-fit I was coming off of 2 years of sever backpain and had just finished PT. I literally could not put my socks on before my last PT and the doctor told me it was likley that I would always have some pain - my PT guys told me if I get in good enough shape with my core I could do what ever I wanted. Guess what - no more pain!
I just wanted to say thanks and let you know what difference a year makes. You and Jason should be really proud of what you have created. I consider myself lucky to be a part of such a great group of people. Please share my thoughts with Jason.
By the way - I really want to continue to improve. I will be 45 in a year and would love to be competitive enough to make it to Regionals in the masters category. I am not sure if that is realistic, but what the hell its a goal, and shooting for goals is a hell of a lot more fun then not.
