How long have you been working out at Groundworx?
I have been a member at Groundworx for just over a year now. Before joining, I had been working a desk job and I just felt weak all of the time because I did not have a physical outlet. My Aunt happened to be a member at Groundworx and she asked me if I wanted to come check it out. I had been secretly interested in learning Olympic lifting and so when I saw that those movements were incorporated into workouts, I instantly wanted to join. Fast forward a little over a year later and I am the strongest I have ever been in my life. The Groundworx community has been really great and I have made many new friendships along the way. The gym and the people have really become a huge part of my life.
Favourite lift / WOD:
My favourite lift is the snatch. It is extremely technical and requires a high degree of strength and mobility. The difficultly of the movement is what makes small improvements feel like monumental achievements.
My advice for others looking to join Groundworx:
Whether you are looking for a physical outlet or to train to become a better athlete, Groundworx has something to offer everyone. The programming is very good, so you will always be challenged regardless of your physical fitness level. The gym is also very family friendly and offers childminding services while members workout. Overall it is not just a great place to workout, but it's a great place to de-stress and hang out with friends.
