Bailey & Ariel

When did you start CrossFit and why? Bailey – I had always been a little interested in CrossFit, but always thought it was to expensive. Last December when I was diagnosed with MS I told a bunch of people that because of this they would someday see me on tv doing a CrossFit competition (obviously joking).

TishWhen did you start CrossFit and why?   I started June 1st 2013. I had no clue what Crossfit was about. My boyfriend asked if I would join Crossfit with him. I said no at first because I was afraid. I have been over weight for so long and really didn’t believe I could do anything so intense. We stopped in and I was terrified. After talking with one of the coaches at CFWV I felt a little better about getting started.
