In April 2020, I was a year postpartum with my second child, at my heaviest weight, overworked, and looking for an outlet to relieve stress. I was hesitant to join another Box after taking a nearly six year break from the sport post-college. However, after reading great reviews and taking into account the accessibility to 400 and the wide range of class times, I decided to book my free trial. My first WOD in six years was difficult to say the least, but one class was all it took! I’ve been attending CrossFit Lanier 5-6 days a week ever since.
Having attended other gyms in the past (traditional fitness centers, bootcamps, barre classes, etc.), I can honestly say CrossFit Lanier is unlike any other! The facility is well maintained, the coaches are knowledgeable and attentive, and the feeling of community is unparalleled. It’s difficult to find the balance between a competitive and welcoming/inclusive atmosphere, yet CFL has mastered it!
In six months time, I have lost 20 pounds and the negative internal dialog of “I can’t”. I have gained physical strength and a confidence in myself I thought was no longer attainable. And for the first time in years, I am living a healthier lifestyle, from both a fitness and nutrition standpoint. CrossFit Lanier is truly life-giving.
Thank you, CFL family!
