Featured Athlete – Shane Peoples

My name is Shane Peoples and I’m a CrossFit addict. I was your typical high school athlete. After I graduated I lived a sedentary lifestyle. I tried the “normal” gyms, but I got bored with them quickly. My coworker was a member of CFB and encouraged me to try CrossFit. In January 2013 I went to my first class. The class completely destroyed me and I loved it. During that time, I was going through difficult personal issues. The workouts were so hard, it was a hour break from my problems. I looked forward to that hour every day. As my personal life improved, I became completely dedicated to fitness. The best part about CrossFit is the community. I have many friends and know more people because of CrossFit. My blood pressure before CrossFit was 150/100. Now it’s 100/80. I went from 2XL shirts to large. My pants size went from 40 in the waist to 34. My cholesterol blood work went from abnormal to normal. Thank you Neal for bringing this amazing experience to this area.
