"I was hooked on feeling strong!"
Brian Hudson talked me into joining Hardware in 2015, after I ran my first Chicago marathon and ended up with running-related injuries for months afterwards. I was so, so nervous after I joined – very intimidated by barbells and all of the lingo I didn’t quite understand. Like anything, after sticking with it for a while and showing up more consistently, I was hooked on feeling strong! I’ve always been small and never spent time developing strength – but the coaching, community and workouts were so supportive and fun that I now find myself preferring a WOD over a run most days!
