"Better shape than high school!"
I am middle aged… it sucks to say but it is the truth of the matter. I found myself in my late 30’s looking in the mirror embarrassed. I spent most of that summer at the lake with my shirt on. In the end there had to be a change, I couldn’t continue like that. There were plenty of excuses. “I own my own business so I don’t have time” “I have 2 kids, they are my priority” but they were simply excuses. Without accountability I struggled to go to the gym. This is where CrossFit changed my fitness journey.
Although, I was intimidated the first time stepping in a CrossFit gym, I quickly found a group of friends that would push me into the best shape of my life. I went from 220 lbs and the least muscle I every had to 189 and as fit as I had ever been. I was stronger than I was in high school and loved every minute (okay maybe not in the midst of a few workouts but afterwards was great).
Now I can say that I am middle aged and in better shape than high school – and that makes me smile.
