I started my CrossFit journey in November 2010 at Wright-Patt CrossFit, and then joined AKP CrossFit in July 2012.
I was the nerdy kid growing up (I’m working on my second Ph.D. now!), so I understand (and still struggle with) a lot of the difficulties we all have trying to get motivated to work out. I was once a runner, trying to stay in shape for the Air Force, and I’ve run one marathon and four half-marathons.
Nowadays, I maintain our fleet of indoor rowers and I’ve rowed two marathons. I’ve come to experience AKP as a family, and the community I’ve found here has gotten me to the gym on days I’d rather have skipped. I’ve found that the biggest challenge is getting to the box each day—of committing to doing something, if only a baby step. Once you step into AKP CrossFit, we’ll motivate you to get it done!
