So the first thing you need to ask yourself is, what makes you happy? To most of us on our health and fitness grind, happy looks like building muscle, losing weight, and performing better in the WODs. Hitting new PRs are a bonus, but so is seeing your first set of abs or dropping a pant size. At the surface level those are great, but what really makes you happy? Some people love that they have more energy at work, the ability to play with their kids/grandkids, and even the fact that they are building meaningful relationships through burpees and barbells… Happiness can be anything.

Whatever it looks like to you, Sweat Factory Crossfit is here to walk with you on this endless pursuit of Happiness.

Here is my 1 year journey at Sweat Factory CrossFit. My starting weight was close to 260 (maybe more I quit weighing myself). Every year was another 10-15 pounds and once I reached 40+ I just couldn’t lose weight no matter what I tried. After years (decades) of not...

Joined 7/15/14 I joined Sweat Factory three years ago for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted to get in shape, as I ran for exercise a few days a week, but had never lifted weights consistently or followed any type of programing.  I knew that going to a traditional...
