“Excellent Coaching and Great Encouragement”, Sabrina H.
I came to Crossfit Biometrics in March because I had tried numerous gyms and they just didn’t seem to fit. I wanted something with more of a community feel. I am in the military and could use the gym for free but then you’re just working out by yourself.
I have been through numerous injuries throughout my career by I wanted to start accomplishing some of the fitness goals I had always dreamed about. One of them was competing in a powerlifting competition on the base, the Annual Chad O’Quinn Memorial Powerlifting Competition in late fall. I finally reached my goal this year (2014), but it wasn’t easy getting to where I needed to be.
When I first stepped into Crossfit Biometrics I couldn’t even do a full squat because of the mobility issues I had from all my previous injuries. With excellent coaching and great encouragement from all the coaches at Crossfit Biometrics I got to the point where I could do a squat without having to use the box to squat on. During the competition I squatted 275lbs, deadlifted 315lbs and bench pressed 165lbs.
At 40yrs old and competing with girls that are in their twenties, what a great feeling. Up next will be some kind of running event. I know I will be able to accomplish this because of the community that we have at Crossfit Biometrics.
