"[...] 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. "

"[...] 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. "
