As a former multisport athlete, I was somewhat in a slump after deciding to not play volleyball at the collegiate level. I missed the intensity and the discipline that higher level athletics contributed to my life and I wanted it back. That’s when I found Crossfit Hammond. I had been hearing about this Crossfit gig from my sister and in some of my Kinesiology classes and it looked legit enough that my 18 year old self who was in my first year at Southeastern wanted to give it a try.

As soon as I went through the intro workout with Brad, I was hooked. The people and the atmosphere here at CFH are unmatched. Everyone in the box wants to push you to perform better and their constant motivation means the world. Although my 20 year old big and bad self is still one of younger consistent members at Crossfit Hammond, I’ve never once felt like the underdog and I’ve made so many valuable friendships with people who have similar interests and goals as I do.

I won’t lie and say that it’s not difficult at times to fit Crossfit into my crazy schedule of juggling a heavy academic course load, work, Greek life, and numerous other commitments. However, it’s an investment into my health (and sanity for that matter) that I’m committed to. Crossfit is my ME time and I wouldn’t sacrifice it for anything! There is nothing as rewarding as watching yourself move up in weights for the lifts and set new personal records or watch yourself progress through new movements that you never thought would have been possible such as climbing a 10ft rope, unassisted pull-ups, one-legged squats, handstand pushups, double-unders, and the list just continues..

I’ve had the opportunity to visit several other boxes in different cities and states, and Crossfit Hammond somehow just always stands apart. This place is great, the people are great, and the workouts are great. Get plugged in with the people that you see and workout with everyday and you won’t be sorry—take my word for it! Crossfit Hammond has played a HUGE role in my future career plans for fitness and I’m forever grateful :) I’m so blessed to have found Crossfit Hammond in my younger college days I’m a proud Crossift addict for life!
