Happy Friday! Here is Yvette's last blog, today she writes about what CrossFit means to her, where it's taken her and where she plans on going. Check it out!
Often times in life we make decisions that happen on the spur of the moment, not knowing that those decisions will pave the road to a future we would never have been able to envision on our own. A perfect example of this is my decision to join CrossFit 818. I never thought that a couple years down the road I would learn so much about myself by staying committed to health and fitness! I have learned that my mental struggles are far more debilitating than my physical strength. I have learned that my potential is endless, and the more I push myself the more I overcome. I have learned that my health is far more important than anything else in this world. And more importantly, I have learned that in order to achieve my goals I need to work hard, stay determined and look to my friends for support.
My personal journey with CrossFit has been amazing. As I look towards the future, I hope that someday I can take on the role of a coach and pass on the wealth of knowledge that continues to be shared with me each and every day. I strive to become physically and mentally stronger, maintain a healthy lifestyle and continue taking on the challenge of competitions. If you asked me 10 years ago if I would ever see myself so involved in a sport I would have said “those times have passed.” Wow was I wrong! Because in fact life is a journey and deciding to take a path that focused on my health would be the best decision I have ever made.
