Just to update. I am still going 3-5 days a week, as my schedule permits (and so is nico, FYI he’s awesome!) HCC is what I hoped to find in Crossfit, a true community. Shortly after I wrote my first review, about three weeks into being there, my mom got sick and I was home in Chicago for a while. Coaches asked where I was, asked about my mom when I got back… it sounds simple, but you’re not just a body. You really are part of a community. A strong, positive, badass community. I gladly give up spending a little somewhere else to see the strength and progress I have made in the last eight months. Classes are small enough you get really good feedback, I never worry myself or classmates going to get hurt (seriously. I can’t think of ONE person being injured. Ask around. That’s rare in many other gyms). Come try it out. You’ll be so glad you did.
