Shannon Carps Testimonial
I had just finished my second year of dental school and passed the first part of my boards. I was 6 months from turning 25, and I was the heaviest I had ever been in my life. All I had been doing was studying, eating, and occasionally going to the gym to run on a treadmill. A friend and I who both were active in sports throughout high school bought a groupon for 10 classes at a Crossfit gym in Columbus, and we loved it from the start. I loved the structure and the challenge of the classes. Even with only slight diet changes I started to see results fast, not only on the scale, but also in muscle tone. When I moved back to the Akron area I came to APC since I grew up in Wadsworth. This gym is much more instructional and fundamental than my previous gym, really paying attention to each and every member, and after fixing some technique issues I found myself accelerating even more. I’ve never been happier with my body. I don’t care about being the skinniest girl, I now focus on being healthy, strong, and achieving personal goals each work out. Crossfit helps you to find your best, do that, and eventually do better. I’ve lifted weights and completed workouts I would have never thought I could. It’s the most encouraging atmosphere I’ve ever been a part of. Diet has always been a huge issue for me, and I now WANT to adjust my diet because I know my workouts will be better. I work full time, I enjoy my life with my friends and family, I go to the gym 3 times a week, and I still see results because of the programming and effectiveness of Crossfit. Bottom line I love getting a great work out, continuously seeing results (even after 2 years!) and staying healthy!!! All while being surrounded by some pretty great people!
