Today I am starting my 4th look better naked challenge! Wow how my life has changed from a year and 1/2 ago. Thanks to the coaches and members at quad city Crossfit! I never thought I would be where I am today when I walked through the doors I was lost! I don’t think Brandon and Josiah knew what they were in for!
My career as a stylist has me standing on my feet 9 + hours a day. And if I did not lose some weight I would have had to quit a career that I love and am very passionate about. So thanks to Tiffany Dodds, I walked into Crossfit! Oh I remember how scary it was!!!
I have never been athletic and was very clumsy, thus the reason my family calls me Trixy. So when I started, I was jumping on a 2″ step, I did jumping pull ups, I barely went down on my squats and lunges. Now today I can jump on a 20″ box, do red band pull ups, and according to Josiah my squats have improved 100%!
I have a lot more I want to accomplish, but I know it will come thanks to all of the support of everyone at Crossfit!
I feel amazing and can do my job so much easier and still have a life after I leave the salon!
After the first paleo challenge I did, I said I would never eat like this for the rest of my life. Wow was I mistaken. Paleo and Crossfit have become a lifestyle and a way of life!
A very good friend keeps reminding me that when I get upset with myself, that I have to have goals and take everything 1 day at a time! We can not change the past, we can not control the future, we can just give today everything we have.! It may not be easy, but it will be worth it in the long run! I have to remind my self of this everyday and every work out!
“The next challenge”…this is the reason that I joined Crossfit. I realized, that if left to my own devices, I would not properly push myself to achieve the body I desired. Being an old collegiate athlete (Div. 2 football and ex boxer)…I know what is required. I wanted a regiment that not only required that [...]
Coach Brock: Abby started in October 2012 and has gotten stronger, faster and moves better each day. She brings the sweetest and most positive attitude to the gym each day, but at 3, 2, 1 go, she becomes one of the most fierce and determined crossfitters you have seen (see her picture!!). Abby works well [...]
This all started three years ago when I was 40 and heavier than I had ever been. I was an athlete in high school and a runner. After having my second child at 33 the baby weight just wouldn’t come off. After talking to Brandon’s mom, who is a good friend of mine, I decided [...]
My first class at QCCF was Halloween night 2011. It was pretty scary. But I kept coming. Everyone was kind and welcoming. At first I would monitor which days I would go based on when pull ups or burpees were in the WOD. Finally, I stopped doing that and plunged in fully once my husband [...]
QCCF has impacted my life in many ways. I moved about 3 years ago not knowing anyone but my fiancé who was busy with school. At that time I had always considered myself a healthy person( I was absolutely wrong about that ) I joined QCCF after I was here for over a year thanks [...]
My name is Jeremy Tatman and I’ve been doing CrossFit for about 14 months now. I own the Chic-Fil-A on 53rd and Elmore. Traveling with Chic-Fil-A is when I started to balloon up. It’s really tough being on the road. I gained about 120lbs……..
I started CF the end of May 2012, overweight, feeling very old and out shape. I am now down 40 pounds, off two medications, feeling great! I love QCCF! I love the people and how supportive they are! Even to us old people! Lol! I know I’m in the best shaped I’ve EVER been in, [...]
