Now the nitty-gritty workout stuff…

When did you first try CrossFit and what made you want to try it? In 2013 my doctor and good friend informed me that my bad cholesterol level increased after my yearly medical check-up, and that I would have to take medication to control it. He also said he had the same situation a year back, started CrossFit, and was able to manage it without any medication. He suggested I try CrossFit and see if I could control it without any medication, so I did. Within six months I was able to control my cholesterol levels without any medication. So far, I am healthy and don't have any health issues, Thank God.
