“Week 2: Ready to get my ass kicked.”
Gary Roberts knows it’s going to take work to reclaim his body and his fitness at Oceanside CrossFit, and he’s up for the challenge in Episode 2.
After experiencing new and amazing levels of soreness following a short chipper in his first week, Roberts is fired up for more workouts, and trainers Laura Patefield and Chris Sheets are happy to deliver.
At first, Roberts thought CrossFit was only about the CrossFit Games, where the world’s top athletes seemingly do the impossible.
“I didn’t realize there was a place for regular people. I didn’t think it was possible for me to become a CrossFitter because I thought that was another level of athlete,” he explains. “But now I see that there’s something for everyone.”
Now Roberts is a CrossFitter himself, and he’s working hard to lose weight, become fitter and improve his CrossFit skills—and his life.
“Can I ever get there? I’m dying to find out,” he says.
