Crossfit is a long game.  It’s a marathon, not a sprint.  I mean, granted, sometimes the workouts are fast, but the process of getting in “crossfit” shape takes a lot of time and a lot of sweat.  I started crossfit 4 years ago after I had my third baby.  My husband...

I started at Pepper Fitness 2.5 years ago. I was close friends with Erica and Barry, but before PRS opened, was not sold on the idea of crossfit. As a life long yogi, the idea of weight lifting was intimidating. My fiancé Jason brought me to my first class about a...

I wanted to do something good for myself. At the time, I just had my twins and was just not happy in so many ways about my body. I had this instinct, this deep feeling that I would like it. That there is something more to this “crossfit” than just a gym. My first...
