Northshore CrossFit’s mission is to build a Fit Community, while providing the highest quality, skill-based training for people who are truly committed to overall health and fitness.
When I came to Treehouse School of Fitness, I had no idea what the Treehouse was about, or if it was something I would enjoy, all I knew is I was in the worst shape of my life and I needed to do something. I called and got an appointment to meet with Mark. The first day I met Mark, we did a simple walk through of the gym and then a test of my basic abilities. I couldn’t do a single sit up, I was shaking like a leaf for half a dozen push-ups, couldn’t run 200m without running out of breath, I was totally embarrassed. Mark was so encouraging, he made me feel like I was successful and that it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Over the next 6 weeks we worked together through the fundamentals. There were so many days that I wanted to give up, and he’d keep telling me that “there will come a time when this will be the best hour of your day” and I’d tell him, “you’re crazy!” Fast forward 8 months, and I can do a lot more than one sit up, and I look forward every day to that one hour I spend with all the guys and gals at Treehouse. Marks prediction came true and now it truly is the best hour of my day. The community feel that the Picardy’s have created, the entire staff and the other members of Treehouse have had such a positive impact on my life,What I realized is there is no need to be intimidated
I just wanted to share with you the success I've had losing weight since joining the Treehouse 10 months ago. I was at an off sight meeting for work yesterday and saw some co-workers I hadn't seen in about a year. They all commented on how good I looked and couldn't believe how much weight I'd lost. Today I weighed in 32lbs lighter then when I started. In May of 2015 my doctor said I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol and recommend that an ideal weight for me would be 200lbs. I'm only 6lbs away from that goal and should reach in a month at this rate. Even though the scale says I lost all this weight I have a hard time seeing it. I told this to a friend who works out at another affiliate. He suggested that I put on a pair of pants from before I joined the Treehouse: There's a good 4-5" from my waist to the waistband. I've seen people in commercials do this but I never thought I'd be one of them! This has led to a problem I didn't anticipate before starting- buying new clothes that fit the new me. I wanted to thank you for all your support. Having a great coach made my goals attainable. I can honestly say that I would be no where near where I'm at if I did this on my own. I look forward to surpassing my doctor's goal and achieving my own personal goal. Thanks again!
