My name is Trevor Baker and I am a 21-year-old senior at Bridgewater College. I have been doing CrossFit for a little over two years! I am a health nut and love working out, however health and fitness haven’t always been a big priority in my life.
About two and a half years ago, I decided that I was no longer happy with the person that I saw in the mirror. I was about 70 pounds overweight and was tired of being fat!! You see, I am a twin; and even though having a twin has been one of the biggest blessings in my life, being one, you are always constantly compared to the other. Being labeled as the “chubbier” or “fatter” twin was a label I had dealt with for too long.
Ready to make a change, I started researching fitness plans and couldn’t find any programs that fit me or ones that I could see myself sticking with. A good friend of mine convinced me to try CrossFit with her. After my first WOD, I was hooked. I had finally found something that was not only a great workout, but also offered a competitive aspect to working out. I started CrossFit a little over two years ago and am now in the best shape I have ever been in. I compete in CrossFit competitions on a regular basis and am also a CrossFit Trainer at CrossFit Harrisonburg.
If I could give anyone advice for starting a workout regimen, it would be to find what works for you! There are so many ways you can make fitness fun and enjoyable!
