My CrossFit journey began back in 2012 at Badger CrossFit in Wauwatosa. There, I fell in love with CrossFit and the community. I ended up injuring my back in 2013 and walked away from CrossFit in an attempt to heal my back. Over the next four years i did a lot of different things to try to stay in shape; I went to global gyms, I did at home programs like P90X and Insanity, I would even make up my own CrossFit workouts at home.
Eventually though I would get sick of working out alone and fall off the wagon. In May of 2017 i was considering getting back into CrossFit. I still had back pain, and I came to the realization that I would have to manage my pain, and it would never fully go away. So in June of 2017 I joined Recursive. I joined Recursive because my wife and I already knew a current member who recommended the gym.
