I just finished the toughest workout I have had in 2018 and I went into it knowing 2 things:
1. I knew I could do it because my coach knew I could do it.
2. I did it on my own but with the support of the incredible community around me (and for the last 400 meters, with me).
OPEX Kura is unlike the CrossFit gym I started in. There is an understanding of not only my current and future goals, but also helps me develop a strategy to get there.
I came to OPEX Kura in 2016 after spending 3 years in an environment where I was getting hurt or not able to perform optimally in the workout because we all did the same workout. Yes, there was scaling to your ability level but everyone in the class was expected to do the same workout.
That changed with Kura and the Opex model that is focused on individualized workouts in a community setting. I feel like Melissa is fine-tuning all of the muscles I never focused on before because those support the other muscle groups and help me move well and pain free.
I used to have knee and back pain with squats and not only are those gone I have achieved 4 personal records this year and can move better with my kids outside of the gym as well.
Thanks Coach Melissa for everything!
