CrossFit Sweat Shop – Walnut Creek

From the Blog

Healthcare Worker Highlight

Celeste is another Sweat Shop member we are highlighting today!  Longtime member whom I distinctly remember doing front and back squats with only a wooden dowel because she was unsure if she had the strength to do more.  Eventually we added some 2 and 1/2 pound plates…. onto the wooden dowel, because she wasn’t ready for a 15lb. barbell yet.  Fast forward several years and she’s doing clean and jerks, and squat snatches like a seasoned pro.  More impressive than the actual increase in the amount of weight that she is lifting is the increase in her self-confidence!

When Celeste is not working out at CrossFit Sweat Shop she’s spending time with her daughter Rhia, or working, as she is a nurse at S.F. General.  Thank you Celeste for the work you do!

On a different, but somewhat related note, check out this short, but thought provoking read from The Atlantic.  Seems agreeable, regardless of your political or socioeconomic views.
