~Why did you decide to join Twice Bitten CrossFit?
Several reasons. TB was the first CrossFit facility that reached out to me…..via FB. The FB post was classes geared for 50+, so that was intriguing. I was curious to learn more about CrossFit.
I was ready for a new and different fitness challenge.The initial time investment was 3-4 times per week for 6 weeks, classes available after work…..and TB Crossfit was not far from home.
~What is your favorite part about TBC?
I really enjoy the team concept of the workouts. Previously always done solo workouts.
~What is your favorite class time?
6:30 pm…with busy work schedule, it’s about the time I can make.
