"From Day 1 the coaching staff has been 100% committed to my growth!"
It is difficult for me to know where to start as I look back on my seven year journey as a member of Ocean Athletics. Prior to walking through the doors that first day I had never attempted a crossfit workout and although I was a lifelong competitive athlete and longtime coach, CrossFit presented a whole new challenge.
From Day 1 the coaching staff has been 100% committed to my growth-as they are with everyone who walks through the doors. It has been a long, sometimes frustrating yet always rewarding journey. I saw immediate gains in both my physical strength and my emotional health. While it took me nearly a year to RX my first workout I was always being pushed to test my limits and enjoy my successes. It would take pages and pages for me to properly thank each of the coaches and describe what they have meant to me but above all else they’ve simply made me a better man.
I have met some of the most amazing people at OA. Over the years I’ve had some of the best training partners around. While I am one of the “slightly” older members of the gym (I’ll be 47 in a couple of months), the “young guys and girls” have stuck with me, challenged me, and every once in a while they even let me beat them in a WOD. I’m so thankful for the members who have become true friends.
If you’re looking to try something new, step out of your comfort zone and join us at Ocean Athletics just as I did 7 years ago, I promise you won’t regret it.
