This is Brian Weibe. Brian has been a member with FP since December 1st, 2016. He came to us with a set of goals and the determination to see them through to the end. To date and with the help of Vitality Nutrition and all the coaches here at FP, Brian has lost 50+ lbs. Just in the past 3 months Brian has lost 8% Body fat and gained almost 10 lbs in lean muscle mass. Here is his story
I had originally started thinking about CrossFit after a friend of mine from work mentioned that she had started going. I had heard about it before but from what little I had seen it didn’t seem like something I would personally take to. Crazy thoughts like “I’m too tall”, “I’ll just get injured”, or “I could never do that” would immediately come to mind whenever I would watch the workouts on Youtube.
My friend finally convinced me to try it and so I went to Frontier Performance. I remember the fist time I walked into the Gym, coach Shawn Lukacsy showed me around and explained to me how everyone is just a regular person working towards their goals and how supportive the community is. The workouts looked ridiculous to me and “WHAT?!” became a common thing I would say in disbelief when I would hear what movements they wanted us to do. Thankfully they are able to scale the workouts down for someone of my athleticism. Scaling has been something that has benefited me greatly due to my weight and the tendinitis in my knee. Instead of avoiding the workouts and hoping for things to get better I was able to do what I could and was given stretches and movements to help strengthen my problem areas.
I am grateful for the coaches at Frontier, I would have never thought that I would own weightlifting shoes never mind see myself olympic lifting. From struggling with ring rows to being able to string together a few unbroken chin-ups, it has been great to see what I have been able to accomplish so far. With everyones help I have been able to accomplish more than I ever would have at a regular gym. Losing 50lbs and getting better movement in my squats is only the start of my CrossFit journey. There is still a lot for me to improve on and i look forward accomplishing more with my FP community.
Thank you Brian for your commitment in yourself and your goals. It’s people like you that give us the drive to do what we do.
