But as the years went by I found myself in a rut and not seeing much improvement in strength or conditioning. It then became easier to skip working out for a day and put it off until tomorrow. I would go to the fitness center and get distracted by watching TV, or convince myself that going to the gym and doing a half-hearted workout was better than nothing at all.

But New Year’s Day 2012, while watching college football bowl games, I was channel surfing and came across a re-broadcast of the CrossFit Games. I had never seen a competition like that before. It was so interesting to see the variety of movements and skills these athletes had to accomplish. I went back to watching football and did not think much about it afterwards. Then, a few weeks later, I received a special offer via email for 10 crossfit sessions. The price was very reasonable and I decided to give it a try. I was hooked after the first session!

CrossFit Tempe is the place where you are immediately welcomed. No matter what your level of experience (from beginner to veteran) the workouts can be tailored to your ability. It is so much fun learning new skills and doing things you thought were not possible. Everyone understands we are working out together and there is so much support and encouragement toward each other and from the coaching staff. CrossFit Tempe is a great place to work out where you will see definite improvements in your strength, conditioning, and overall fitness.

  1. I can’t say enough good things about this guy! Jon is one of the most consistent athletes in any gym, logging in more than 1,000 workouts in four years. That consistency has paid off! It is hard to keep up with him during WODs. As impressive as Jon is during WODs, his athleticism is not his best attribute. Jon is probably the nicest person you will meet in and outside of the gym. He seems to always have a smile on his face and is helpful with newbies and old-timers alike. It is a great pleasure to have gotten to know Jon and call him a friend.

    • Thank you, “JF”, for those kind words. I appreciate your encouragement and our friendship over the years. May we continue to be active and live healthy.
