CFT Athletes of the Month! | Print |
Written by Andrew Rape   

Chris and Brooke Schmohl are our CFT Athletes of the Month!

Couples that train together stay together :)

I am so happy for the two of these athletes to be representing us as our Athlete (Athletes this month!) of the month :) These two have been such a strong support structure for one another since they started with us at CFT that it's began affecting every athlete around them.  Brooke and Schmohl (aka Chris) are always keeping everyone's attitudes up and never allow a difficult WoD to take a hold of their outlook.  They've got one of the strongest relationships I've ever seen and are always empowering one another.  Inside the gym, they are both consistently ensuring that they are monitoring their weaknesses and spending time on anything that they need to all the while encouraging those around them.  They both embody exactly what we want to see as athletes who represent CFT; integrity, discipline, excellence, effort, love, respect, and valuing relationships with others.  We want to encourage the both of you and wish you the best of luck as you continue to be amazing examples to your daughter!! We are so happy to have you guys representing us!!

- Coach Andrew

Here is what Chris had to say about his experience so far at CrossFit Trussville:

In 2011 when our daughter Hannah was born I had been working out fairly regularly and was trying not to gain that pregnancy weight that fathers sometimes do. When Hannah was one month old she was diagnosed with a rare form of infant cancer. She had a surgery and several other procedures during the first year of her life. During this time, fitness was not at the top of my priority list and I found myself again off the wagon. Somewhere during this time I decided that if Hannah can be as strong as she was, then I too had better be around to see what the Lord had in store for her. I decided that I would not let my health be a reason for us not to be able to do things together as she got older and I didn’t want to be the dad sitting around watching her play, but rather be right beside her for all her activities.

I know most people are concerned with weight loss, and I wish I could say that I’ve lost a ton of weight but that’s just not the case. When I started CFT I weighed about 235 pounds. Well, I still weigh about 235 pounds. Fortunately, this is only a number. Even though I still weigh the same, I am much leaner and more muscular than I can ever remember being. After years of eating terrible, I never knew just how much extra weight I was carrying around. Not only do I have more energy, but my overall mind-set is much better than it has ever been. I look forward to each day and the challenges that it will bring, not only for Crossfit, but in every aspect of my life. CFT has truly been a blessing to me and my family. Thank you so much for this tremendous honor, and if you are out there thinking about Crossfit, quit thinking and just come get started. It will be one of the decisions that you look back on and wish you had done sooner.

Wow! What an honor. First of all, I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since I started here at Crossfit Trussville. I talked about joining for about six months before Brooke said “just shut up about it and go do it!” I have to admit, I was pretty intimidated by the whole Crossfit thing. I have worked out over the years off and on, but never with the consistency and intensity that I have here at CFT. I would usually make it anywhere from 3-6 months and then fall off the wagon again. For anyone thinking about joining I would say that while the WOD’s are always grueling and intense, just walking in the door was the hardest part for me.

Andrew, thank you for the example you set everyday not only here at CFT but seemingly everywhere you go. You really do inspire average people like me to push beyond what we think we are capable of and achieve great results. For the rest of the coaching staff, a huge thanks to all of you. Since the day I started you have taken time with me as an individual whenever I have had questions or when you’ve seen me doing something that needed improvement you are there to help.

To everyone else in the gym: Thanks for making us feel welcome. I remember the first night I came to the fundamentals class, and as I was leaving, Ashley Williams came out to the parking lot just to tell me that she hoped I had a good time and to welcome me to CFT. That moment confirmed for me that I had found something special at CFT. I have met some awesome people and enjoy our friendships. Thanks for all of your encouragement. Which is usually after you all finish the WOD and I’m still working.

Lastly, thanks to my wonderful wife Brooke. I have truly enjoyed seeing you improve in the gym and get so much satisfaction out of Crossfit. You are setting a wonderful example to Hannah by showing her that strong is beautiful. Thank you for pushing me to give CFT a try, and your support to always push harder.

I tell Brooke all the time that there is a 450 pound version of me just waiting to get out, and I fight that guy everyday. Being a part of the CFT family has helped me tremendously in this battle. Everyday I am looking forward to coming in and getting the work done. Now we have made our fitness such a part of our lives that we plan our day around being able to come in and do the WOD. I have always tried to be a person that will do anything for anybody, but please don’t ask me to do anything between 3 and 5 in the afternoon. I will be at CFT!

Chris Schmohl

And here is what Brooke had to say about her experience at CFT :)

What!?! Are you serious? I am at a loss of words. I am honored to have been chosen as the CFT Athlete of the Month and it's great to get to share this with my husband. It is truly an honor. When Andrew told me this I was so excited that I had tears in my eyes. I never imagined this!! Well to start off, I love Crossfit Trussville and never dreamed I would still be here after a year and a half. Yes, I am one of those people that used to refer to Crossfit as a cult (sorry Andrew :-/). But I was so wrong!!

I describe Crossfit Trussville as a place where people that love to workout and lift heavy stuff come and everyone acts like they've known each other forever. My journey at CFT started because I was so tired of hearing Chris talk about it. Chris started Crossfit 3 months before I decided to join and talked about it nonstop. He was always talking about the WoDs and showing me different things he was doing. He tried and tried so hard to get me to join with him but I was scared to death. I was intimated by everything associated with working out and especially "crossfit". Being an outsider, I was like "have you seen the things these people do?? I can't do that!! They will laugh at me." I would go to the YMCA and do a cycle class but would never step foot in the room beyond the treadmills. For one, I didn't want to workout with guys and secondly, I had no idea what I was doing.

I finally got so tired of him talking about Crossfit that I gave in and joined. I was so intimated, that I made Chris go to the fundamentals class with me so I wouldn't be by myself. I walked in on that Monday night and the gym was packed! My heart was racing 90 to nothing. But I stuck it out and I am so very thankful I did. My first real day was January 21, 2013 and the WoD was "Murph". I scaled and scaled and then scaled some more. I remember barely being able to lift a 33lb bar over my head.

But now all of that has changed and I love everything about Crossfit Trussville. I especially love hitting new PR's. I wish I could ring the bell everyday. I am still not where I want to be but I am stronger than I was when I started and feel the best I have felt in a long time. Our daughter was born 9/11/11 and while I was pregnant I gained 50lbs. I was still carrying around a lot of that extra weight when I started, but a month after I started I was able to fit into my old scrubs and it felt amazing!!  I am so thankful my husband never stopped pushing me and is still so supportive. I am a truly addicted to CFT. If the WoD isn't posted by 8pm, I am the one that is constantly checking to see if it's up.

I can't wait to do the next workout even though the one I just finished just about killed me. To the coaches--- WOW!! Y'all are truly amazing and are so passionate about this sport that I never felt like I couldn't ask how to do something. This is not just your "job" but your passion. Every single one of you helped me and showed me the correct way.  The coaches are awesome!! A huge thank you to Curt for always being so patient and willing to help. When I first started, the only class I would go to was the 10am, because it was 90% girls in the class and it wasn't packed out so I felt like I could say I've never done that before and Curt would take as long as needed to show me and make sure I was doing it right.

To the athletes of Crossfit Trussville y'all are ALL amazing!!! I've never felt so welcome or so apart of something before. I am not the most outgoing person in the gym but I am living proof that it's ok to step out of your comfort zone and do something that scares you. Lacy Isbell posted something on Facebook not to long ago about being comfortable when your uncomfortable and I can so relate to that. I'm slowly getting more comfortable working out in the evenings. I know all of you are going to laugh, but I still can't hang with the big dogs :-). But seriously, I wouldn't be where I am today without y'all. You all have pushed me, helped me and when I'm struggling you have kept me going and I thank you for that. To the women off Crossfit Trussville y'all inspire me to be better every day. Strong is beautiful. To the man I'm sharing athlete of the month with, I wouldn't want to share this with anyone but you! Thank you for pushing me and supporting me through this journey.

Thanks for getting us both addicted to CrossFit Trussville. :-)

(It's also pretty awesome that my coach has been drafted by the Rhinos as a pro athlete!!!)

Thank you again!!!

Brooke Schmohl

After you’ve been through a free introductory workout, your next step is to attend our Fundamentals course for beginning athletes.

This course includes 3 1-hour individual (these three specific sessions are included in your membership) coaching sessions designed to introduce you to the basic CrossFit movement techniques. Furthermore, we will provide coaching on CrossFit, strength and conditioning, and nutrition. These sessions are specifically designed as a gateway to joining our regularly scheduled group classes.
