I first met Lee and Lorna in their CrossFit facility in January of 2012 while I was a student at Niagara College in Welland taking the Police Foundations course. I was convinced by one of my college classmates and friend who lived in the Binbrook area and was a newer member to the CrossFit Stoney Creek family that I had to come out and try this awesome gym that she had joined! Now I had at this time heard of CrossFit and knew what it was all about, but I did think that it was a fad and that all the talk about fast results and extreme results was a bit exaggerated. But my friend insisted that I try it and we always worked out together for training for our Police Physicals (PREP) so I agreed. I also at this time was a daily swimmer and runner of 3 km to 5 km and I was training in the martial arts of Muay Thai since September of 2010. So going into CrossFit Stoney Creek I was in good shape, my cardio condition was strong and because of the Muay Thai training which is a form of boxing and kickboxing from Thailand I did have good upper and lower body strength and some definition. That being said, what I walked into at CrossFit Stoney Creek was like nothing I ever expected! It was the toughest, most challenging, push yourself to the max sport I have ever tried! And it was AWESOME! Lee and Lorna and all their trained professional staff showed me things I never thought was possible for me to do. And CrossFit Stoney Creek put me in the best shape of my life hands down by pushing me to excel even further in my cardio, control my diet to the leanest form possible and giving me more physical strength through Olympic lifting than I ever dreamed I could have. The best and smartest thing I ever did was walk into CrossFit Stoney Creek and once you are there it will change your life forever and there is no going back! Nanette Buda
