Aaron’s Journey My fitness journey started later in my life than I would like to admit. After college I found myself at 250 lbs and hated it. I ended up joining weight watchers and had great success with it, hitting as low as 163 lbs, but I did not incorporate any kind of physical activity.

To people who’ve known me my whole life, my journey to CrossFit Clintonville would probably be described as, “unexpected”. I’ve always been a ThiccBoi, even as a kid. An early sugar addiction and an intense childhood loathing towards all things green and leafy will do that to you. Couple that with a natural aversion to

Before I started Cross Fit, I was working out in a local gym, doing boot camps and weight training, and some power lifting with a trainer.  My husband and I both worked out there, and we had a great support group of friends there. I felt perhaps I’d reached the limits of how far I

Colin: My journey for a better and healthier life started in June of 2016. I had just moved out of living with my Ex-girlfriend and was the heaviest I had ever been. At that point in time was when I knew I needed a positive change in my life. The idea of starting Crossfit started

My first parlay into CrossFit came at the demise of my pure resistance against my best friend’s insistence on trying it. (Sound familiar?) After berating him for months about his new obsession, I figured I’d give this whole fad a try at Dennis Kap’s original gym, Always Forward CrossFit through Denison University’s Big Red Fitness
