In Linda’s words: It took me 45 years to learn and realize that you just have to do it! You have to workout and make it as important as anything else in your life.
In the Trainers words: Linda was one of, if not the first, CrossFIT client at FIT. She began in personal training and now trains solely in our CrossFIT program. When Linda began her training program, her knees would not allow her to run. She had difficulty squatting and you couldn’t get her to jump! Now, her favorite mode of exercise is weightlifting. She is sprinting and racing her daughter Mariko during workouts, and jumping on the 18” box. She has changed her diet, lost weight, gotten stronger and more powerful, and even got a great new haircut! Linda’s dedication and hard work combined with her great attitude has made a huge impact on her life and has earned her Client of the Month at FIT. – James Noriega
