""I’m fitter and healthier than I’ve ever been in my life and I’ll be 44 this month""
“I was a runner for 10 yrs. I ran every distance from 5k to marathon. I eventually started coaching as well. I became burnt out on running. It wasn’t making me happy like it once did and I was unenthusiastic about training. I took a break from it and tried other things – yoga, Orange Theory, spin and then CrossFit. From the first trial class I was hooked. 10 years of running and I never loved it like I love CrossFit.
When I started I didn’t know anything at all and thought I was very fit. Little did I know that fit is an incredibly widely used term, and sometimes very loosely. I’ve been doing it for about a year and a half now and I can honestly say, I can’t imagine my life without it. I’m fitter and healthier than I’ve ever been in my life and I’ll be 44 this month. I’m stronger than I’ve ever been. I wake up every day looking forward to working out. The coaches and the other athletes keep me motivated and my progress has been exponential. I was barely able to lift the bar for many of the workouts and now I’m hitting PRs on a regular basis – and hitting numbers I sometimes can’t believe. I’m doing T2B and HSPUs, pull-ups and love everything involving the barbell. I hate the assault bike, but who doesn’t. My goals this year are to master double-unders and to get 10 strict pull-ups in a row, more if possible.”
