Name: Cindi Ahl
Tell us a little about yourself:
I'm married to Luke Ahl, I'm a mom to 3 very energetic boys, ages 9, 8, & 5. I work as a Accounting Supervisor at Mayco Industries in Birmingham.What made you start CrossFit Gardendale?
Luke joined after seeing a member spotlight and was amazed at the results so he wanted to try it for himself. After about 3 months, he talked me into trying it. My issue was the amount it cost monthly so I told him I would try it for 3 months and then continue on my own. Well here I am 3 years later still going 4-6 days a week. Luke and I workout together and our boys come and cheer us on. It is a family atmosphere and everyone becomes part of your family.Describe your first workout?
Nothing was easy about any of it, the cost, walking into On-ramp class, the first REAL class. The WORST part for me was remembering names of the movements and then remember the actual movement. It only took me about a year(or more) for that to click. LOL!!! So needless to say I used to dread barbell movements but now they are my favorite. I don't remember my first workout but I know I HATED the row machine when I started and still HATE it.What goals have you accomplished so far?
I have accomplished LOTS of goals.
Double-unders (still need lots of work)
Running a mile without stopping and under 10 minutes
Lifting more weight than I ever thought I would.
Got 1 MU, maybe I can get more one day.
Be consistent with form and move more weight.
I know it is more expensive than the other places but you get what you pay for. Trust me I had that same mind set until I just decided to do it. I have never looked back. As far as the atmosphere and people they are out of this WORLD. You won't find any better than at CFG.
WE ARE FAMILY, WE ARE CFG!!!
