Dan has been with CrossFit Pickering for 4 years. In his own words:

“The desire to be FIT is my main motivation that keeps me coming back to Crossfit.  The WODS provide the variety which keeps me interested, while the instruction from the coaches helps me to continuously improve.    Furthermore, the encouragement, experience and mentoring provided by coaches and other members is invaluable, appreciated and supports my goals.”

What are his words of advice of newcomers?

“When I started at CFP everything was new to me.  I had not previously received any training or coaching specific to weight lifting and almost all of the movements were new to me.  My humble advice to anyone trying Crossfit would be “don’t rush, give it time and commit”.  I didn’t find it easy when I started but the results have been ABSOLUTELY worth it!”

How have you changed by doing CrossFit?

“I am probably in the best shape of my life.  Crossfit has taught me that I am capable of so much more than I thought I can do and leaves me with a sense of accomplishment after completing each WOD.   It has made me stronger, not just physically but mentally as well.  I am better prepared to handle the stresses and physical demands of a regular day.  I would like to express my gratitude to the coaches and members at CFP for their training, mentoring and constant encouragement.”
