Who are you?
Hey, I’m Pat. I am from upstate NY, moved around a bit after college and ended up out here in beautiful and sunny Colorado. I have lived here for close to 5 years now and have been a member at CF LoDo since my 3rd day in CO.
Why do I CrossFit?
CrossFit, unlike other strength/cardio regimes, offers constant variety. I really enjoy the challenge of Olympic lifting and efficient Gymnastic skill and the total body coordination it requires to be able to fully express the potential of your ability. Also, swinging around on the rig and rings is the closest you can get to playing on a jungle gym as an adult.
I encourage anyone to try CrossFit even if it is to supplement another training program.
Why CrossFit LoDo?
When I moved here I did not know many people. I joined CrossFit LoDo originally because it was a facility that would allow me to continue the style of training I wanted to do. I have stayed over the past 5 years because of the welcoming and supportive community. I have made many friends exclusively through the gym and I continue to everytime I step through the doors. The coaching staff have a very diverse background and are knowledgeable in a variety of aspects of fitness and athletics.
