“I’ve always enjoyed athletics; from pole vaulting to capoeira – I’ve loved it all. So, when I was advised that a series of compressed spinal discs meant I should no longer run or lift weight of any kind, I was devastated.
I followed this advice for almost a year, gaining weight, feeling depressed, and living in almost constant pain. Then, through a series of unlikely events, I found myself at Steel Furnace CrossFit.
The Steel Furnace coaches were welcoming and helped me scale early workouts until my technique and strength were adequately developed. Here I am, 2 years later, PAIN-FREE, in the best shape of my life, and so inspired that, I, too, am now a Crossfit trainer. I know I couldn’t have gotten here on my own. I owe my health (physical & mental) to the Crossfit methodology, coaches Roy & Abel, and the entire Steel Furnace family. Having a supportive, friendly, like-minded group of amazing people/ athletes has drastically improved my life! ”
