How did you come to CrossFit?

Why did you open your own box?
I really fell in love with CrossFit since I executed my first wod (Cindy) my score was 19. Day by day CrossFit became an addiction for me and at last I decided to take Level 1 and I did but it wasn’t enough for me. I should have thought beyond of it there were 2 official box at this time and I said to myself “I’m gonna open 3rd official CrossFit Box of my city’’ and I accomplished, my dreams came true.
