There is so much to say about these two awesome individuals that make-up a fire breathing, go-getting, positively inspiring couple! Not only do we feel safe by all measures when they are in the house, seeing that Chad is serving as the Fire Captain with the City of Goldsboro and Rosalie is an EMT-Paramedic with Wayne County EMS but, we feel honored that this couple has chosen CF Goldsboro as their box. This month we wanted to take a moment and reflect on the outstanding job Chad and Rosalie have been doing at Crossfit Goldsboro. Both Chad and Rosalie have had other gym memberships before and both agreed they just weren’t getting the results they deserved; so, they visited CF Goldsboro, a year ago, in August of 2012. They walked in to hear the Mr. Chris Daly explaining Crossfit and noticed “a big crazy looking guy” (Joey) painting wood in the back from this philosophical encounter they decided to give it a try! After a few sessions Rosalie was hooked, CF had taken her out of her comfort zone and revealed her inner WOD monster. She is now lifting heavier, jumping higher, and running faster than she ever thought she would or could! Since starting at CF Goldsboro Rosalie has been eating better, seeing muscles she did not even know she had, and completing challenges in the gym that she never thought she would be able to. She loves sled pushes but has a love/hate relationship with double unders and running, but that’s why she’s a fighter; her least favorite exercise is a personal goal she is working towards this year! We are so proud of you and your never quit, I’m going to eat this barbell mentality Rosalie! You are inspiration each time you train! And then there’s the guy with the mustache, Chad, yes you sir! Chad has seen his weight go down and his PR’s go up! Before starting with CF Goldsboro Chad just wanted to lose weight, get healthier, and put his troublesome shoes on with ease! He wanted structure and found it at CF Goldsboro! Needless to say Chad not only puts on shoes without a problem he has dropped thirty pounds and disposed all blood pressure medications!! He is strong and powerful which explains why he will mush-mash a workout with Oly (Olympic) weight lifting and/or rowing! On the other hand, much like his other half, double unders and running WODS are not his favorite but there again lies that fighter spirit, he working towards improving them with each WOD! Thank you Chad for being that guy, the one we know makes every rep count and leaves everything on the table! You come in and do work whether it’s a Wednesday or a competition you are the definition of fearless! And speaking of competing, these two have done it! This year alone they have made CF Goldsboro proud by competing in three competitions and still have two more to go! Go get em’ COBBS! Please help us congratulate Chad and Rosalie for all their hard work, dedication, motivation, and up-lifting attitudes, our August 2013 Members of the Month!
“Don’t compare yourself to anyone else in the gym, it is YOU AGAINST YOU. Everybody has a different skill level, work on improving yours and not comparing. Crossfit is more than just exercise; you meet a new group of friends that soon become a second family.” –Chad and Rosalie Cobb
