From the Athlete

CrossFit Frontier

Jaden loves playing basketball, but he has not been a competitive player or necessarily aggressive, which can drive his parents crazy. CrossFit has changed his attitude, bringing out a competitive side. He loves CrossFit and strives to improve himself. Jaden has become a much more confident and aggressive basketball player. Now, when he faces a difficult task, he attacks it by telling himself “I’m a CrossFitter, I can do it.”

For our August vacation, we went to Myrtle Beach and visited a box offering CrossFit Kids. We were able to watch Jaden complete a WOD with other kids who have just started. We were amazed to witness how far he has come in a year. In the beginning, we would tell him he was like jello when doing push-ups, keep your core tight, keep your back straight, stop laughing, etc. Now we watch him do perfect push-ups, eloquent Thrusters and kipping pull-ups. We are now looking forward to watching him do his first muscle-up. While we were at the Myrtle Beach box, the coach used Jaden as a model of how to complete the WOD using proper form. We found ourselves being very proud of what he has accomplished and are still amazed at the positive impact CrossFit has made in his life.

Jaden started Carey Jr. High today and we know he has the confidence to be successful. We very much appreciate Coach Chris for investing his time in our son in the beginning; Coach Sara for getting CrossFit Kids certified, strengthening the coaching staff at CrossFit Frontier; and the rest of the coaches for providing additional support and instruction. You guys rock!
September 1, 2013 will be Jaden’s 1-year CrossFit anniversary.

Proud to be raising a CrossFitter,

PS
Myrtle Beach is not the first box we have visited and none of the other boxes, so far, have stressed proper form to the degree of our CrossFit Frontier coaches. During some of our visits, we have seen individuals frustrated because they were not efficient in their workouts. So while we may cuss our coaches at times for correcting us, damn you squat therapy, I’m sure all at CrossFit Frontier appreciate the fact that you, our coaches, focus on proper technique as much as productive workouts.

Thanks!
