Rachel Ginzburg: Learning to Love Myself
"Since January, I've lost 25 lbs, I've made it down to size 6 jeans, I've learned new skills like double unders and toes to bar, and I've beat every single one of my old personal lifting records. . . I'm especially thankful to all the incredibly strong women at Iron who have been role models for me, and have helped me learn to love myself day in and day out, regardless of the number on the scale or the weight I can lift off the ground."

I am an Athlete
". . . . Not only has Iron helped me gain strength, but it has given me a community of people that will cheer me on when I think I can’t go any further. Iron has such an amazing and wonderful group of people that I now travel an hour to workout with them at least once a week after moving away. I just can’t give them up. They are more than a bunch of gym buddies. I have gained a group of wonderful girlfriends that inspire me in the box and outside of it. My only regret with Crossfit is I didn’t do it sooner."

"[...] The movements were new and challenging. The workouts were tough and rewarding. Progress was slow at first. But then things started coming together. I was no longer excusing myself for getting older. I was getting stronger and in better shape. Weights that I hadn’t lifted in 20 years I was suddenly lifting again. I was exceeding maxes from 20 years ago. "
"[...] My before and after photos are about so much more than my appearance. They are about how I think and what I can do. Crossfit changed my perception of what a fit woman looks like. I no longer fear that muscles will make me look big or “like a man.” Muscles make me look more fit and feminine than ever before. Strong is beautiful. Strong is empowering."
"[..]I walked in for the first time very scared and timid. I had the mindset that once I could do one pull-up, I would call it quits and mark it as a success story. However, once I completed my first WOD, I knew CrossFit was exactly what I needed to achieve the change I desired..."
"[...] I no longer wanted to achieve that “skinny girl” look; I wanted to look fit and be strong. "
"[...]I have come a long way in the past few months, I have gotten stronger and healthier. [...] I have also proved myself wrong over and over again lately by being able to accomplish things that just a few months ago I was telling myself "who are you kidding you will never be able to do that."
"I’m still amazed at the results I’ve experienced from working out for just one hour a day, but on top of that, I have a lot of fun [...] At Iron CrossFit, I’ve gotten to know dozens of people – not just names, but the people behind them. I’m excited that this is just the beginning – the beginning of a new physique, new challenges, new friends and a new passion for fitness. That’s what we do at Iron CrossFit: We find our fire. "
