I was tired of trying to get into shape by myself. Nothing seemed to work for me and I wasn’t seeing the results. I then saw on Facebook some pics of friends who went to Catalyst and thought they all looked in great shape and that’s what I wanted to look like. So I decided to join with a friend and try it out. I totally loved it and have been doing it for over two years now. I am addicted to it I guess you could say and feeling like I have some muscle. lol
My proudest moment so far is when I first did a muscle up in the Catalyst games. We were warming up and a few of the guys were trying muscles ups. I had never done one before and didn’t really want to even attempt to do one because of failing. I then thought what the heck do I have to lose and tried one out. To my surprise and with a little bit of a struggle I was able to get a MU. I was jacked and wish that could have counted for the workout.
When the time came, I was able to pull of 6 more in the workout. I was so jacked after doing that, I then knew that as long as you put hard work into something and keep up with the workouts, you can do anything.
There are a few Catalyst stories. One of the best ones is when I wasn’t at a workout and someone (Rileigh) told another gym member that during kettle bell swings, I had an accident in my pants and that’s why I wasn’t there that night. I did not however find out about that for a week after. I was totally embarrassed (not really) but also found it funny. I did set the story straight and said nothing like that every happened. True story!
