Hi my name is Minneah “Punky” Holdridge. I joined CrossFit because of 2 friends who talked me into it, but later became the best decision of my life. I’ve always been an athletic person and enjoyed working out. I lacked the motivation part at the gym because I was self conscious so it was hard to get a good workout in. When I joined CrossFit I fell in love because it pushed me to levels I didn’t know I had and brought out a fire in me I’ve never had to use. The family part of it is so great because we’re all in it together having the same goal and doing the same workout and so supportive of each other. CrossFit has helped me exceed in my career choice as a firefighter and help keep me in shape for that. I decided to become a trainer because of the result of the first health challenge I completed at CFCV. I was so happy with my results because that’s when my fire really took off. It was the first time in awhile that I was happy at what I saw in the mirror. It had made me such a happier person that I realized I wanted to help people achieve that same feeling I had because everyone deserves to love themselves.
