Member of the Month
Amanda started CrossFit in January, like many others with a, “New Years resolution”. She started in our beginners program, and decided that she enjoyed the challenge. Amanda is generally quite and likes to blend into the class, but when given feedback and direction she quickly learned that she is capable of doing more than she thinks. While building this new level of confidence in less than a year, she competed in her first team competition and did very well. Though Amanda was extremely nervous she was able to enjoy the competition while cheering on her fellow teammates through the rainy day. Congratulations to Amanda King!
At CrossFit Petal we believe every person has an inner athlete waiting to be discovered. We strive to reach personal goals as an individual but also promote a sense of fitness and community. We believe by educating athletes on proper movements through skill work and functional movements, we can minimize their risks of injury both during workouts and also every day life activities while increasing strength and level of fitness. By using this approach there should be no limitations on who can participate regardless of level of physical fitness, age or previous injuries. This can be accomplished by modifying or scaling any movement necessary.
Through our constantly varied, high intensity workouts, we hope to promote friendly competition but also a sense of camaraderie. Our goal is to have a CrossFit family that is supportive of one another. With motivation and support, we believe everyone will get stronger together, both physically and mentally, so that they may ultimately achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
