The first time I heard of CrossFit was from my brother, Jermey, a long time ago.  He started CrossFitting 6 years ago, and every time he came home with his wife, we would do a WOD.  I never understood what CrossFit was, besides a type of workout.  My first workout was the “Filthy Fifty.”  It was horrible!!!!  I was sore for days.  I never really thought twice about it or continued to CrossFit on my own.

My story starts after I finished my last soccer game as a senior in high school. I started getting wild with partying.  I weighed 175lbs. coming into college.  After 2 years I was 215lbs.  I gained 40 lbs; I guess the freshmen 15 was a myth, and it should be called the freshmen 50. By my junior year, I changed my major to Fitness Specialist because I wanted to become a personal trainer and change my own life around.

I worked out 4 days a week by running 1.5 miles to a traditional gym, lifting, and then running 1.5 mile back.  I lost 5 lbs in 7 months.  I, also, hurt my shoulder in the process and lost the ability of working upper body for 3 of those months.  I became frustrated and tried to work my way through it, but I decided I needed extra help.

When I contacted Hoosier CrossFit, my intro workout was completing as many rounds as possible of 100 meter run with a 10 lbs. med ball, 10 squats, and 10 push ups for 10 minutes.  I got 3 rounds and I was dead.  I walked it off and asked Shaun how to sign up for On Ramp.  After the first month, I knew I wanted to do be a CrossFit trainer for a profession.  I lost 25 lbs in 3 months.  Then, I lost an additional 15 lbs during the first paleo nutrition challenge.  Hoosier CrossFit has shown me how  to perform movements the right way and to care for my body to prevent injuries in fitness and in life.

CrossFit has made me feel like a real athlete, again.  It is something that I won’t ever stop doing, something I hope I can not only get better at but continue to become more knowledgeable about.  I just finished my CrossFit level one Certification at the beginning of February.  I was an intern for 5 months and will soon be a trainer at Hoosier CrossFit.  My real goal, now, is to become the best coach I can, eventually run my own CrossFIt gym, and get to a point where I can really compete as an athlete.

I owe everything to 3 people:  My brother for introducing CrossFit to me, Go  CrossFit Workhorse!!!!”  Also, the real coaches who have taught me everything I know and more:  Shaun Tieman, and soon to be Mrs. Tieman,  Jenna Innis.  Thanks guys!!!!!
