Team, Small Group, & Personal Training

I went to my lifelong friend Justin McMillian, owner of Elite FT, 4mos after having ACL replacement surgery and asked him to help me both rehab my knee and improve my overall fitness level.  Justin introduced me to Crystal Gedris and she has been one of the best things that has happened to me at the absolute lowest point in my life from an overall fitness standpoint.  Crystal has designed workouts for me that focus on my range of motion and building up strength in my legs, but also helping me build strength back up in my entire body.  Crystal and I have become friends.  I think she understands me very well.  She always listens to me, she challenges me, checks on me, and I can tell is really rooting for me to obtain my fitness goals.  Anyone who asks me if I have lost some weight I say I don’t know because I don’t ever weigh myself, but if you want to start a real fitness program you need to talk to my girl Crystal, because she is really good!
