11. How is CrossFit changing your life?

I see CrossFit as an outlet for me to embrace and celebrate the hard and the soft of me.

The Hard:
it has allowed me to release lots of my intense emotions and energy that may seem inappropriate in a normal everyday setting especially for a female :)…and as a result, my body has become more physically fit.

The Soft:
But it also has brought some beautiful people into my life who have and continue to help me see and be, more graceful, kind, and supportive to myself and others…because in the box we all come from different walks of life and are at different levels, this enables me to get out of my own head and take the time to see things through the lens of another…and as a result, my heart is more spiritually open.
