How long have you been coming to Central Staffs Crossfit.....
Since July 2014 (9 months)
 
What was your background in Fitness or Sport before you joined at CSC.........
I was a member of another box close to home, and was a member there for 2 years but circumstances meant I had to find another CrossFit affiliate that met my more specific needs.
 
How did you hear about Crossfit.....& how did you hear about CSC specifically....
I was serious about finding a crossfit affiliate that met my all round requirements, a gym that could help me recover from my injury, build confidence but most of all deliver first class, coaching in a non competitive environment with a like minded community. I tried 4 other affiliates before i found CSC. 
 
What do you enjoy the most about Crossfit at CSC.....
The focus, the dedication of the coaches and the care and attention that they all have over their members. due to my injury sometimes my frustration with my ability wins over, butin moments of self doubt the coaches remind me of where I have been, how I have progressed and put things in perspective. That kind of attention has lead me to sign on for a full 12month membership and has helped me become stronger than I thought I could be... But I know that's just the beginning...
 
What changes have you seen physically and mentally within yourself since you started at CSC.....
Without doubt I am stronger, more flexible and in a much better place than I was when I joined. Mentally I am more prepared to fail and learn from my coaches. Overall I think that CSC have inspired me to keep moving forward no matter how small the steps, moving forward is still moving forward after all. For me its not all about competing against others its about becoming a better version of me... Although the throwdowns are fantastic so watch this space.
 
Would you recommend CSC + CF to friends, family & others......... If yes why....
Firstly Crossfit is an amazing way to keep in shape and gives you movement and strength skills you can use and apply in everyday life. Secondly CSC is welcoming, professional and dedicated to making all of its members stronger, fitter and healthier. The community is amazing, the coaches and their dedication is like nothing I have seen at any other gym. I travel 25miles out of my way each morning and pay the membership because I feel it is worth it to have coaches who understand my individual needs and have people support me in getting me to my goals. I love it :)
