Freestyle skiing or snowboarding. I am amazed of what those athletes can do.

7. If you could one piece advice to someone who is just starting CrossFit…..
Be outgoing, and ask questions. Be open to advice, and listen to others when they give you tips to help improve your skills. Workout with people you enjoy spending time with, and the gym can be a home away from home. I love my GymFam.
