“I took on the FitMe Challenge at CrossFit Black Bear 18 months ago due to a health scare and being almost 250 lbs. I had always been very active and athletic and I had let life get in the way of that.”
“I had seen CrossFit on tv and it looked terrifyingly difficult, but awesome. After being told I had cancer and then a month later being told they were wrong I took that as my wake up call and just gave it a shot. I was extremely intimidated going into my first class. I was seriously out of shape and could not perform any of the movements without modification. However, the coaches at CrossFit Black Bear meet you at your level and help you move on to the next level. The community at CrossFit Black Bear gets me out of bed at 4:30 each morning in the dead of winter to get to class. Because of the coaches, other members of the gym and their constant motivation and support I am happy to say I have lost about 50lbs and complete many WOD’s I never thought I could, even the infamous Murph! CrossFit has most definitely changed my life. Increased energy, better physical health and mental health means I am a better person whether at home or work. And because of CrossFit Black Bear I was able to finally accomplish one of my goals of summiting Katahdin. I could not recommend this gym more.”
“I began training with Crossfit Blackbear six years ago. I was a single mom raising two young daughters by myself, and I was tired of feeling like I couldn’t keep up with the activities my girls wanted to experience.”
“I needed to do something to change and feel better about myself. After trying out a couple classes at CFBB, I quickly discovered that not only had I found a support network of people working towards being healthier versions of themselves, but I found a network of friends that support each other in and out of the gym.
I never would have called myself an athlete growing up, but since CrossFit is a dynamic sport with a variety of movements, I began a journey of discovering things my body could do that I never would have imagined possible-and I was good at it! Crossfit Blackbear has helped transform both my mind and body into a more confident and healthy mom, woman, and teacher. Every time I step in that gym, I’m reminded that I can inspire my students and my daughters to believe no matter their circumstances, they can persevere and succeed!”
“I love travel – to family and friends especially doing so by train. I have traveled by train from Maine to Miami to Vancouver, Tijuana Mexico to Halifax NS and around England by British Rail.”
