My name is Justine McCormack, 21 and senior at Dominican College, I am about to obtain my Bachelors in Psychology. I have been doing Cross-Fit/Olympic weight lifting since October 2015. Ever since then I have been obsessed with it. Not only do you compete with other people but you compete with yourself to get better and grow stronger. Before i started cross-fit, i was a competitive cheerleader for about 17 years of my life, so I have always been a very competitive person. My coach once told me when I first started that “Sometimes its not about how good you are but how bad you want it.” That has pushed me to what I have achieved and want I want to achieve. After i stopped cheering i gained about 25 pounds, I came across a cross-fit website one day and decided to attend a class by me. I feel in love with it. Over a year later i am down 30 pounds in fat and have gained more muscle than I ever thought I could. My greatest achievement in cross-fit is my back squat.. I started out squatting only 135lbs now a year later i was squatting 220lbs.
I want my website to provide not only a message to people to help them lose weight but an experience. I will be able to help my viewers to NEVER GIVE UP. I know times get hard and you just want to quit. But i want to give my viewers no option to quit!
