Back in April of 2011 there was this voice in my office talking about working out. This voice was saying things like “at my box”, “wods”, “double unders”, “muscle ups”, “400’s”, “clean and jerk” and finally “rowing”. I said to myself “what the hell is she talking about”…..”but if she said rowing maybe I should listen a little more”. So I did and then made the fatal mistake of asking her what this was all about. That is when CrossFit became a curiosity. I found a local box near my office and reached out to Aimee Lyons. April 28th I signed up for Crossfit Fundamentals and I have been a CrossFit KOP member for 10+ months.
In the CrossFit world I am considered a Master. I will be 45 years young a month from today. CrossFit has been perfect for me. I came from a rowing background in High school and College. I have always tried to remain fit with lots of challenges along the way. And nothing I really – truly liked to do in the fitness world.
The Globo gyms for me were an exercise in futility. I wanted to get a workout in (other than my basement or a run) but wanted nothing to do with the clientele. In other words – as soon as I walked in I wanted out. I don’t think I have ever said more than “how are you” to anyone in a Globo gym – and for those that know me that should be a surprise. With all of this – I just did not feel fit.
I started CrossFit at 6’ 1” and 185-190 pounds. Today I am the same weight but my body is different. Aimee has the pictures.
I love the competition, the Olympic Weight Lifts, challenging myself to do one more rep or improving on a skill. Most of all I enjoy my fellow members. It has been fun and rewarding learning from our great coaches and members. What makes it even better is when a new member comes in now to be able to help and encourage them from what I have learned. You know that something is working when guys half your age look at a number you post and try to beat you…….
I have been so thoroughly impressed with Aimee and Jason and their programming and the way they run their box and have gotten so much from it personally I have recruited many to join. I have my brother and my sister at a CrossFit in NY (my brother has lost 20+ that he needed to lose). My good friend in Vermont who won the Paleo challenge his first month and lost almost 30 pounds. And my wife – thank god she joined she was sick of me talking about it!!!
Speaking for the 40 year olds this works and will make you feel much younger……trust me!!!
