How did you find CrossFit? 5 years ago I move to Bakersfield from San Pedro, Ca. I was new to town didn’t know anyone, so I would go to the River Walk Park to run. When I notice a boot camp class getting their butt kicked by a bad ass trainer. So for 2 weeks I would watch the class more like stalked them and do the workouts on the top of the hill. One day I approached the class and ask the hot, bad ass trainer Amy Carroll if I can join the group, after kicking my ass twice a week for a couple months. Amy encourage me to try CrossFit and my respond was heck no, but I ended up going and loved it. puked twice,but went back for more. 5 years later still here. And that’s how I found CrossFit best decision ever, gained friends more like a family. Thanks to Carrie, Daniel and Tyler for trusting me making my special juice and giving me job at CrossFit OD now CrossFit Feral
