What was your first experience at CrossFit Cayman like? “A friend told me about CrossFit and prior to starting; I did some research on it. The feedback was encouraging. When I started the foundation sessions I was interested in wanting to learn more.

Though I was eager, I was apprehensive at the same time; apprehensive because I didn’t have much weightlifting experience and I doubted my abilities a lot.”Read More
