I love CrossFit, I love waking up at 4:30 in the morning to come in and help others through CrossFit. Helping them get in shape and achieve their goals. There’s no better reward then seeing the look on someones face when they hit a new PR or their first Pull-Up or Muscle up. This is why I get up every morning.
