1. What brought you to CrossFit?

What brought me to CrossFit was my nephew, who lives in Charlotte, has been singing CrossFit’s praises for 3 years. I have seen the transformation in him and thought it would be a great fit for me!

2. What was your first impression?

My first impression was that Black Bolt is very professional and the gym was clean and neat. Coaches are very direct in what I should expect and that I wouldn’t be put in a position to do more than what I was ready for. All of the coaches preach safety first which I think is extremely important. The members are amazing and I never feel like I need to do more to try and impress anyone. The members that I have met are great! Everyone has been super supportive and welcoming and made me feel like I had been there for years. Black Bolt does a great job and I’m super excited about going to workout every day. JOB WELL DONE!!!

3. What’s been your biggest accomplishment?

My biggest accomplishment thus far has been my mobility.

I sit at a desk all day and haven’t really worked out or stretched for over 4 years. I can see a difference already and it’s only been 3 months.

4. What are you working on now?

I mostly work on mobility. I stretch now more than I have ever have. I need to get my front rack in a better position. I know it will come so I just keep doing what I’m doing.

5. What’s your favorite Black Bolt CrossFit memory?

My favorite memory so far has been seeing everyone together for the first night of the CF Open. It’s obvious that you are doing something right. The members there are great and I think it’s because of the Staff’s leadership skills and knowledge. I’m thrilled about where I am and can not wait to see where I will be in the months to come.

I highly recommend Crossfit but especially Black Bolt CrossFit! *****
