Your Story Matters, Sydney!
It is our hope that Sydney's testimony will motivate & encourage you to start your own journey to become healthier, happier and stronger.
Why did you join Oregon CrossFit?
I had been fighting pain and loss of fitness after my second knee injury. An old friend strongly encouraged me to try Crossfit.
What's been your biggest accomplishment?
Sometimes it is the littlest things that feel the biggest - I am happy to feel that I can do as many AbMat sit ups as necessary. Oh! And I can do side planks now! Who knew?
What are you working on now?
I am currently taking the Upper Body & Core Strength Specialty class with Michael. I am hoping to manage my first pull up in over a decade.
What motivates you to continue training at Oregon CrossFit?
Simple. Results. I keep getting stronger. There are so many things I do every day now that a year ago would have been impossible for me. I have had two catastrophic knee injuries. There was a period of time that outlook on fitness and my body’s capability was pretty bleak.
Thank you, Sydney, for sharing your story!
