We are more than happy to see Sarah loving the gym and CrossFit. She couldn’t have been more nervous at the start but she trusted the coaches and realized how much fun working out could be! Sarah is a former athlete in high school where she ran track for Middletown North. Watching her bring out her inner competition to better than she was yesterday has been awesome to see.
“I have always considered myself athletic and grew up as a Tomboy playing sports, but since I have joined PowerPack CrossFit my concept of what it means to be an athlete has changed. Being an athlete doesn’t mean I have to be the strongest, fastest or even the first to finish a workout, but consistently putting in the hard work and effort to becoming the best version of myself and achieving the things I didn’t think were possible (like a snatch-I never thought I could do that! In fact I was afraid of lifting heavy weights above my head) My accomplishments at PowerPack wouldn’t be possible without the support, encouragement and motivation that the coaches and athletes provide each and everyday. They have pushed me to do my best and have helped me to believe in myself. The feeling of completing a WOD or hitting a PR on a lift, is so rewarding; I never thought I would get so much satisfaction from working out! The past five months I have fallen in love with sport, the community within the gym, the friends I have made and both the mental and physical strength I have gained. Everyday I look forward to the challenges I will face, bonding with the other athletes and the positive energy that PowerPack CrossFit gives me!” – Sarah Anderson
