After 5 years with Liz watching myself transform and become; seeing the Twin Flame Gym close was quite a blow...especially during a global pandemic. She was kind enough to refer us all to Mike Krivka's gym nearby at CrossFit Koncepts. I know many remember Mike when he came for a kettlebell clinic and recall not only his fun personality, but also his knowledge of technique and training.
Once things got back to normal, I decided it was time to get back at it. Mike welcomed me joyfully and took the time to get me back on track. He is truly a master with so many things, body movement, training, and those kettlebells. Our work outs are varied and endlessly versatile. I'm grateful at every class for the welcoming community that is so diverse where I found the support and fun I had been missing. Yes, it's a struggle getting back to where I was. But having fun supportive coaches and a welcoming non-judgmental gym community, where I feel comfortable and want to come back after each class, has made all the difference. I have a journey ahead still and I certainly won't be doing Ragnar anytime soon (who am I kidding: NEVER) but I am seeing improvements and getting excited again about picking up heavy things and to just keep going.
If you're still looking for a new gym, join Sarah and I here with Mike! You'll be glad you did.
