If you’re contemplating joining a CrossFit gym in the New Year, but still not 100% sold, let’s have a look at some of our current members’ CrossFit journeys and see if we can get you over the line.
In the next few weeks we’ll be sharing some real-life stories of our members who have not only changed their bodies through CrossFit, they have grown in confidence, which, as a coach is fantastic to see!
Let’s start with…Jonny Doney
Jonny has been with CrossFit Pendle right from the outset and has trained consistently 3-4 times per week for the last 4.5 years.
He knew that fitness went hand in hand with the right diet, but with three small children, one a baby, he found himself struggling to focus on getting the whole package right.
Jonny said: “I’ve always struggled losing weight, but I had hit my heaviest at almost 17 stone. While it had bothered me for some time, it was when I saw pictures of myself on a family holiday in Switzerland that I knew it was time to make a change. And he certainly has!”

The photos became his motivator and Jonny set about adjusting his lifestyle to kick start his weight loss.
He said: “For the first 8 weeks I limited my carb intake to post workouts only, but I was still treating myself to a weekly take away; I was just more sensible about my choices.
“The weight began to shift very quickly and I felt much happier in my own skin, as well as generally having much more energy overall.
"I’ve never felt as fit in my life."
To date, Jonny has lost almost 3 stone and while he is now maintaining a close eye on calories in and out, he feels he has met a happy balance.
He said: “I’m happy with how I look and feel right now and if I have a takeaway or boozy night I don’t beat myself up; I get back on track the next day. My next goal is a six pack…”
