Outside the Box w/ Ian Mandichak

What made you want to try CrossFit?

I didn’t know much about CrossFit, but I knew I needed to make a change in my life. I started seeing Facebook friends posting their On Ramp pictures and experiences with CrossFit.  Those pictures sparked my interest and made me curious enough to start researching CrossFit Revival.  During my research, I learned that CrossFit is for anyone of any age no matter their fitness level–there are truly scaling options for everyone.  Knowing that, I was still very skeptical that I would be able to do CrossFit.  However, I scheduled my consultation anyways.  After meeting with coach Justin, his confidence in and encouragement towards me and the program was all I needed to give it a try. 

Favorite moment since joining CrossFit Revival?

I can’t say that I have one specific favorite moment, but my favorite thing has been the journey itself.  From the first day where I was so unsure of the decision I had made, to today where I am lifting and doing things I never thought in a million years I would be doing, I am healthier and stronger both physically and mentally as a result.

What are your goals moving forward?

My goals are simply to continue on the path of a healthier lifestyle.  Some have goals of losing weight, gaining weight, lifting a certain amount, etc., but mine is pretty simple. I want to continue on the path I started nine months ago.  I believe I have come a long way: I look healthier, I feel healthier, and I am healthier because of my decision to join CrossFit Revival. 

What keeps you coming back to CrossFit Revival?

I keep coming back to CrossFit for several reasons.  The first is the fact that each day you are doing something completely different.  I never have to worry about getting tired of the same old boring gym routine.  That does not happen at CrossFit.  In 9 months of being here, I don’t believe I have ever done the same thing twice.  The other thing that keeps me coming back is the people and the culture.  There really isn’t any other gym that has the culture like CrossFit Revival.  The people make this a welcoming place for everyone.  We are a family made up of all different backgrounds, all different ages, and varying fitness levels.  We work out together and celebrate each other’s wins, all while encouraging and supporting each other along the way.
