Tim and I started at Prevail about a month apart, approximately 2 months after Prevail opened its doors!
We typically are at the gym about 5 times per week and generally in the same class a few times a week. Funny fact… you will most likely not see us partner together for a Team WOD, as once it almost resulted in divorce! We can be a tad bit competitive with each other!
"CrossFit has taught me that failure is part of the process and without failure, you don't improve. By improving, you gain confidence."
"CrossFit has changed (saved) my life."
"I am now more confident, I worry less about depriving myself of certain foods, and I have gained a strong group of people who will always support me in what I'm doing. Thank you CrossFit Prevail!"
Love the Schaefer family story & how it has changed all their lives & is now something they bond over as a family! :-)
In October of 2011, at the age of 45, I was just coming out of a difficult emotional season that had taken a toll on my physical wellness. A friend invited me to come try CrossFit with her because she knew that I needed to do something to invest in myself and help move me physically to the place I was striving for emotionally. I responded to her invitation and came to check it out despite my insecurities about being a “weak” person. I had grown up competing in endurance sports so I was motivated by fitness but had always viewed myself as weak.
