I love SIC! Being a member has changed my life immensely. When I walked into the box on 8/6/12 for my first foundations class, it was a bit overwhelming but exciting. I knew that this was the place I was looking for. I had jumped around from gym to gym and tried many types of fitness routines: yoga, Pilates, spin, machines, Zumba and running. I tried it all! I didn't know it at the time, but I was looking for something to fill the void that was left when I stopped playing competitive team sports and cheerleading. (I did still play in a coed softball league, but that just wasn't cutting it.) I missed the thrill of competition, bonding with teammates and a sense of purpose.
I am happy to say Staten Island CrossFit has filled that void. Getting my butt kicked by well programmed WOD's that leave me gasping for air has made me feel alive again. The environment at SIC is electric. The amazing coaches have pushed me hard, in a good way of course. They have helped me to finally rediscover my inner athlete and drive. So much so, that I now enter into local competitions. But the best thing about SIC is the people. We are more than just members or teammates. We are a tribe. Everyone is very encouraging and helpful. The last person to finish the WOD is always the person who gets the most cheers at SIC.
I am very grateful to have found and to be a part of Staten Island CrossFit. SIC has not only helped me change my body for the better, but also my mind and spirit. When it comes to CrossFit boxes, Staten Island CrossFit is a step above the rest. If you would like more information about SIC, check out their website at www.statenislandcrossfit.com.
