Becoming part of the IMCF family has been one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. After having had (3) rotator cuff surgeries in the past 7 years I didn’t think I could handle doing the things I’d seen or heard done in a CrossFit gym. I knew I needed to do something to get in better shape. I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 years ago with an A1c of 12.4 (normal is 4.3-5. [😎] and I’d lost weight and changed my diet but I was missing the exercise needed to really make a dent in getting into the normal range.
Watching the transformation in my wife since she joined IMCF a year ago and her constant encouragement to go with her to try it I mustered up the courage to go and now I’m hooked.
The coaches are incredible in how they work with you no matter what your limitations happen to be to become stronger. I knew nothing about weight lifting when I started so I had a lot to learn and will continue to learn every day I go. So many terms and techniques to learn but I’ve found that everyone is willing to help others which really makes you feel like part of the family.
I can proudly say that I am off all medication for my diabetes and I’m now in range at 5.6 and I have IMCF to thank for that. I’m becoming more flexible and making noticeable progress in my technique and ability which drives me to want to be there as often as I can. I’m looking forward to continued progress this coming year.
