Mother and Daughter Start Crossfit Purpose in Winnsboro

About the Team

Betsy and Julie Howard

The Winnsboro community is lucky to have Betsy Hudson, a true entrepreneur in every sense of the word.  She also owns Betsy’s boutique, a very successful women’s boutique on Main St.  Her daughter, Tori, is following in her Mom’s steps by being a co-owner in the new Crossfit Purpose business. The excitement both Betsy and Tori have for their Crossfit business and their desire to help others with better health and lifestyle is a recipe for another success story.  Betsy has been involved in crossfit for three years and she quickly fell in love with the program. 

The new Crossfit Purpose opened on June 1, 2019.  Crossfit is a world-wide organization that sells affiliate memberships. Since opening they have had a steady stream of people visiting and trying out free classes to experience the workout.  The facility has three certified crossfit Level 1 Trainers. 

Fitness Training for Everyone

The environment is intended to be a rugged garage like set up.  It is a combination of high intensity and lifting.  Each work out is done in a group and is always changing.  They support each individual and modify work outs based on capability and current fitness level.  The same workout can have up to three different modifications.  This process minimizes intimidation and supports an “I can” environment.   Another benefit, is that many classes have all three instructors, so individuals get personal attention and coaching with every class.  With other types of workout facilities you are usually on your own after the initial training.

Crossfit participants create a community of people that are like minded and encourage one another to be successful.  This type of environment is one of the biggest benefits to Crossfit training.  Team effort creates winners.

Crossfit Explained

CrossFit athletes train their muscles, joints and ligaments using functional movements, which means they’re useful for more than just looking good in a bathing suit. Well-rounded workouts that use large muscle groups and various ranges of motion lead to better overall health, posture, flexibility, strength and balance.  This methodology also gets participants in shape at a faster rate

Betsy plans to add nutrition information and classes in the future.  Also, they hope to bring a competitive event to Winnsboro.
