Coach Lem Galema
Certification: CrossFit Level 1
Growing up, I can't recall really being interested in sports because I didn't have the opportunity to. It wasn't until high school that I got involved with fitness when my dad got me a membership to Healthworks. I spent a lot of time imitating grown ups lifting, so I was more working out for aesthetic reasons, not for health. It became mundane and routine. And that went on for years.
It wasn't until 3-4 years ago that I was merely looking for a hobby that I can enjoy that I discovered CrossFit. From that very first day it was all I wanted to do.
It's great to see other athletes improve in all sense of their life, from gaining confidence, to strength, weight loss, friends and all the other goodies that come with Crossfit. I've learned so much and continue to that I wanted to give back to others.
Personal motto: "Work hard in silence and let your success be your noise"
