Sometimes, you just need someone to tell you what to do and how to do it.

That might seem a little direct, but it is a sentiment we hear from new potential clients and current members all of the time. It even came up recently during our podcast interview with the Athlete of the Month for January 2023: Drew Farrar.

He and his fiancé moved to Pittsburgh shortly after COVID restrictions lifted in 2020. Drew had worked out in the past, but never stuck with a consistent plan. Part of the problem of knowing what to do. He would stick with cardio machines and lifting machines. Then, the other problem would start to creep up, boredom. Because he didn’t know how to use different kinds of exercise equipment, his workouts weren’t varied. He would also run out of workout ideas quickly and end of doing the same thing over and over again.

That’s why, when Drew moved to Pittsburgh and settled down, he decided once and for all to join a fitness program. Knowing about CrossFit from a family member, he search for and found Industrial Athletics. Since joining, he and his fiancé, Brendon, have been coming two to three times each week and he loves the variation in movements, equipment, and workouts. Better yet, he says, there is always someone here so he knows what he is doing is being done correctly and safely.
