I joined Comal CrossFit in February 2013.  Since then so many things have changed, for the better. I remember stepping in the box and immediately feeling intimidated by the six pack totin', barbell throwin' people and thinking how many pull-ups did they just do? I was encouraged and taught how to scale and workout for my ability level.  Regardless of how I had to scale down I was never put down or made fun of. Instead it was quite the opposite, most everyone in the box (as we like to call it) had been in my shoes at one time.  Over this last year I learned what a burpee was and the difference in a split jerk and a snatch.  But what I have loved learning the most is getting to know my new family. Because of their support, encouragement and patience with me I have gone from weighing 275 to 245. When I started I was not able to do one pull to now being able to do 50 plus in a WOD (Workout of the Day).  At the beginning I was not able to run a complete mile without stopping to recently running a 5K in 35:15 with a 50 pound rucksack.  I wouldn't have been able to achieve what I have done so far and won't be able to achieve my future goals without them.  Not to mention being consistent in showing up. Comal CrossFit has classes everyday multiple times during the day making excuses not to go very difficult.  Their friendly knowledgeable coaches care and really do want you to succeed.  I may not be the best in the box, but I am better and healthier than what I was.  Thanks Comal CrossFit for a great year and for the years to come.
