I have been coming to Synergy now for about 2 years and I can’t even begin to tell you how much Synergy and Crossfit have changed my life.
As a person who has come from a running background, I did not have a lot of strength and wanted desperately to improve on that and that is how I became a Synergy member. Since my humble beginnings at Synergy, I have gained more than strength, I have gained a loving, welcoming community of people who support me no matter what I can or can’t do in the gym. This is not something I have ever experienced at other gyms. Synergy and its members have always made me feel like I belong to something bigger than myself. A sense of belonging that can’t be described with words but instead felt with the heart.
My favourite part of Synergy is the challenging WOD’s and the amazing coaching. Through coaching, I have learned that I need to make peace with the parts of the WOD’s that I don’t enjoy and to focus on technique and improving the skills that challenge me physically. Since, I have adopted this mind set, I have been able to do some pretty awesome things that I thought I might never be able to do, like pull ups and toes to the bar.
Coaching has also taught me to be humble and kind. In everyday life, I sometimes forget that people around me have things going on in their lives that I can’t see physically. I’ve learned that it is not enough to be nice to your fellow Crossfitter but instead to take an interest in who they are and to always give them support and encouragement.
As previously stated, I cannot explain how much Synergy and Crossfit has changed my life, simply because it might take me a really long time. This is just a small fraction of what has changed in my life since finding Synergy. Positive Life Changes = Synergy Strength.
