Pre- Paleo

2 months into Paleo/CrossFit

Hey Goose,

I honestly can’t thank you enough for this (member of the month). A little personal note for you guys to start with…I came into your gym 4 months ago with my life in a downward spiral. My relationships with my family and friends were crumbling, I was unhappy with my job, and I constantly tried to convince myself that Boston was not the right place for me. I would drink every night just so I could go to sleep. Sleep seemed like the only place I could escape the depression I was putting myself through. Since meeting you guys and becoming a member of the community that is CrossFit Southie, my life has turned around completely. You guys have been the catalyst for what has been the best thing that has happened to me in my entire life. I have never felt such control and confidence. I enjoy my job again, I am closer with my family than I have been in years, and I am comfortable and confident in where I’m at in life. Again, I can’t thank you guys enough. You and everyone at CrossFit Southie have helped me find a life worth living!

See you guys tonight!

Ben
