Member Spotlight - Joe & Sam Southard
How your Crossfit Journey started?
We decided to join CrossFit in October of 2017 our goal was that we wanted to be fit for our wedding in Mexico. After a few months we realized that this was a lifestyle change. A change we knew would continue well after the wedding. After we hit our goal we decided that we loved CrossFit and we are still loving it today
How has Crossfit impacted your life?
CrossFit has not only helped us stay on track with our healthy lifestyle, but CrossFit has also impacted our lives because of everyone at the gym. The people here are the best part. It has created friendships for us that extend past the walls of the box. We really love the support and motivation from our fit fam!
