is Our Success
I have been coming to CF Analog for almost 5 months. Prior to starting CrossFit, I lost ~25 pounds on my own through strict diet and exercise. I ran regularly and did light weight lifting at a local gym. But I got extremely bored of having to inspire myself each day to workout. My radical solution was to attempt CrossFit, which I had never tried before.
CF Analog takes the guesswork out of my workouts, and Coach Jesse is a great motivator and teacher. As someone who had zero experience with Olympic Weightlifting and Gymnastic movements, I was pretty terrified to try CrossFit. What if I was terrible? What if it was too hard? Never fear, because Coach Jesse (and Coach Jet!) will explain how to do everything. If you can’t complete the difficult movements, they have no problem scaling it “down” to something easier (I routinely bypass Pull-Ups in favor of the much easier “Jumping Pull-Up”). Additionally the coaches are very concerned with doing movements safely and with proper form, so there is little need to worry about injuries.
CF Analog is full of CrossFit devotees and awesome athletes but, if you’re out of shape or new to CrossFit, don’t let that deter you! This gym is full of the nicest people. Each class is full of welcoming members who will say hello when you walk in the door, and encourage you to keep going while you work out.
Finally, the price point doesn’t hurt. This gym is affordably priced compared to some other CF gyms in the area. Also the equipment is all top notch and the new larger space is great. There is so much room for activities!
All in all, I would definitely recommend this “Box” to any future, or seasoned, CF athlete. Five stars.
Playing softball helped keep Sacramento, native Felicia Fonts, 31, a slim size 6 throughout high school, but her weight started to creep up after she landed an office job. Tethered to her desk, she never exercised–and she started ordering pizza or a giant burrito for lunch. “I ate whatever was most convenient,” she says. “I never thought about nutrition.” In 2010, Felicia wore a size 14 dress to her wedding, then tacked 25 more pounds of “love chub” onto her 5’8″ frame during her first year of marriage.
In January 2012, Felicia’s company instituted a system that used health tests to determine employees’ insurance deductibles. Felicia, who was 179 pounds at that point, was looking at a steep increase in payments. “Finally,” she says, “I had a reason to get fit.”
She began trading processed foods for fresh fruits and veggies, learned to cook healthy versions of the greasy dishes she used to order in, joined CrossFit Analog and trained 3-4 times a week.
Six months later, she was 18 pounds lighter. To accelerate her weight loss, she stopped chasing workouts with a big bowl of cereal, and decided to go full Paleo. By December 2013, she dropped 31 more pounds and was a size 4. “I had a fit body again, and I loved it!” she says.
Felicia is now at a healthy weight and up for any fitness challenge – Spartan races, 5K’s, and whatever you throw at her. “It’s very liberating when you’re not restricted by your body,” she says. “My confidence is high, and I feel that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.”
