It has been 5 years since my husband and I first decided to try Crossfit Vacaville as our “date night”. I will be honest, we were both very nervous, and didn’t know what to expect from this experience. Wow, we made it through the first WOD feeling exhausted yet very accomplished. My husband loved it and continued following Crossfit Vacaville during their growth and expansion. When we found out I was pregnant with our son Cameron who is now 4, so I took some time off. Then in February 2014, I was driving to work one day and decided a few things: I needed a challenge, I wanted to work out with my husband, and I wanted to work towards that toned body that I have always dreamed of. I was tired of going to the “regular” gyms where you were only a number when you check in and spend numerous hours doing the same workouts day in and day out and not seeing any results. I called my husband to tell him my new goals and he was ecstatic. Crossfit Vacaville here I come! I walked through that door and the look on Andy and Marcia’s face was priceless. They had been trying to get me back in their doors for quite some time, knowing that I would love it and feel extremely successful. My goal was, every woman’s goal, to lose weight as fast as I could. My favorite part about this was that Justin and I were working out together, bringing us closer than ever, connecting through hard work, sweat and sharing fitness goals and successes. Having a healthy body and mind improves the health of your relationship as well as shows our two beautiful children the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Days turned to weeks and weeks turned to months- we are still going strong, going on 6 months straight 4-5 days a week. We have both lost pounds and inches, gained muscle and have both become that much stronger and toned person we have always wanted to be! I have been told that we have officially “drank the Kool-Aid!”
