So we were the typical married couple. You know the saying, ‘when you’re happy, you gain weight.’ Well that was us in a nutshell. We worked hard and ate out all the time. We were also typical in the sense that we talked a lot about losing weight and getting fit. We would try different things here and there only to not see lots of results and to quit a few months later. This cycle went on until August 1, 2011 when we finally went to Basin Crossfit just to ‘try it out.’ Jake had to pull over on the drive from Midland back to Odessa. And I felt like I was a puddle of mush. But that night we became hooked! We, of course, came back the next night and signed up for a year. We quickly started seeing the results we had always wanted. We lost weight, became stronger and made life-long friends that were on the same exercise journey. Crossfit has now become a part of our lives; we compete in competitions and are both Level 1 trainers. Almost two and a half years later, we continue to see awesome results and Basin Crossfit has given us the tools and training we needed to reach our personal goals!
