"Mike joins 45lb plate club"
CrossFit Provoke saved my life. I was turning 40 and my annual physical did not go well. My Doctor told me I was overweight and had high blood pressure. He gave me two options. Get my act together and get in shape or allow him to treat me with medication. I had all the good excuses on how I got there. Life, work, being busy, and just not being focused on my health. I always drove by Provoke and wanted to know what it was all about.
I found the Groupon offer and decided to give it a try. I almost died my first class. My heart felt like it was going to explode out of my chest. My first class was a bit intimidating because I was surrounded by all of these amazing athletes. They were doing pull ups, hand stand push-ups, and all of the athletes lifted like a million times more weight than I could. I remember half way through the WOD (Work Out of the Day. You will get the lingo the more you come) I was on the floor gasping for air. Then “G” (Garrick the owner) walked up to me. He told me to just keep coming in and working on my-self. He shared that all of the amazing athletes I was watching started out just like me. Those words stuck with me and kept me motivated to keep working on my-self.
I am proud to say I have been with Provoke for over two years. I have lost and kept off over 50lbs and am in the best shape of my live. All of the coach’s here are amazing and all want to work with you to become better. It is hard work and you will only get out what you put in. However if you are serious about making a change Provoke and Garrick will be with you every step of the way. I highly recommend Provoke.
