“Stepping outside my comfort zone: Crossfit
I still remember the day….meeting Derek in Luna Café to discuss starting Crossfit.”
“My love for CrossFit started when the gym was a true garage….Ty’s garage. Derek taught me the fundamentals of lifting and the basics of Crossfit. I have gained confidence in and outside the gym just by learning to push myself and grow beyond my limits. The gym is great people, hard work, and a desire to constantly improve. Packerland is not just about exercise but nutrition and mindset. That is what makes Packerland Crossfit so great!
I am a Registered Nurse, mainly in the hospital setting. Intensive care was my specialty. With this career, I was able to travel to 4 states over a year and a half and work in other ICU’s and found Crossfit gyms to continue to gain strength and endurance (stepping out of my comfort zone). Upon coming home, I have chosen to work in home hospice.
I look forward to each class since it provides a good start to my days off Monday thru Thursday. I feel energized when I complete a challenging workout.”
“I started coming to Packerland last summer. Mostly to mix things up and hang out with my sister Danielle for an hour.”
“The coaches and members at Packerland are SO friendly and welcoming. I didn’t once feel like the newbie I was, and I was pretty much your square-one newbie (TTB, G2OH, HSPU, WTF?) The programming at Packerland is fantastic too! I love the variety. Some days I’m killing it and other days we’re doing everything I struggle at. It makes me a more well-rounded athlete, and no workout is ever a boring one. From the moment I’m greeted at the door to the cool down, it really is the best hour of my day.
My suggestion to anyone who’s worried or nervous or unsure of their abilities is just get out the door and try it. Everyone at Packerland Crossfit is so encouraging. You’ll be so happy you made the choice to come and shortly you’ll be addicted to the environment. Just like that final run to the mailbox capping off a tough workout, the hardest part is getting out the door.”
“After having my physical, I was told to lose weight (that also has ballooned with age), and I was put on notice that I would need medication to reduce my cholesterol if I didn’t get things under control within the next year.”
Kurt and Graham Koehler
“That was really my wake up call. I made a commitment to myself to attend PCF 4 days per week for 1 year (only missed 2 weeks via traveling in year 1). I lost over 15#’s and am happy to say I am still not on any medication.
After being involved in PCF for a year, I felt comfortable with Derek’s philosophy and the family atmosphere. I started to have Graham attend 1 on 1 sessions with Derek so he could learn basic lifting movements. Graham ended up loving the workouts and joined PCF when he turned 13. For me as a parent, nothing gives me greater joy than working out with my children.
My advice to someone starting out is to check your ego at the door and buy into the process. If you do that, you will get the results that your hoping for, plus you will meet some pretty amazing people on the same journey you are on.”
