Thank You, Jim

I want to thank Todd, Josh, Adrian, Stephan, Nadia, Lance and Tucker for a great weekend. I'm 36 years old and have been in a wheelchair for the last seven. It didn't take long after I found Crossfit to realize that it was easily adaptable to disabled folks (Kyle Maynard was a big help in this area as well!). I also found out, after trying some workouts at home, that I wouldn't be able to get the most out of it without talking to some trainers and learning more.

I was nervous showing up at the Level one at GSX on Saturday, but all my reservations went out the door as soon as Todd walked up to me and said "Hi I'm Todd and I'm glad you're here. The classroom is upstairs and there's no elevator so we're going to carry you." And they did all weekend, eight trips up and eight trips down. No talk about liability, no complaints, they just did it. I've only felt that welcome a few times since I got hurt and I want you guys to know that this weekend is not only going to help me get fit but your hospitality and and attitudes will make it a weekend I will never forget.

Sincere Thanks

Jim Downer
