I wanted to take a moment and encourage some of my Facebook Friends living in Cumming, GA to check out really awesome way to get and stay healthy and have a lot of fun while you do it. For me and Tami this means Crossfit at Crossfit Stand.
About four years ago I made a commitment to get healthy. I lost over 50 LBS at one point. I've gained about 15 of it back in mostly muscle. At 55 years old I'm doing stuff I had no idea I would ever do. I am literally enjoying the health I enjoyed as a much younger adult. This past year after a year into Crossfit I competed in the Crossfit Open a worldwide Crossfit competition. I finished 313 in the world in my age division out of about 4000 who entered and just over 2000 that completed the competition over five weeks. Next year my goal is to be in the top 200 and advance to the qualifying round with a shot at the World Games.
Regardless if you are a 55 year old maniac (me), soccer mom, competitive athlete, or retiree Crossfit can and will improve your quality of life. Where else can a 55 year old compete with some of the best and fittest athletics in the world, build incredible relationships with all kinds of people, improve their health and appearance weekly, learn and grow in the area of nutrition, run a mile, 100 push ups, 200 sit-ups, 300 air squats, and run another mile in less than an hour (Murph), and share a hobby with their spouse of 35 years. We have one simple goal when it comes to health: to live a healthy life and enjoy doing it.
I've said all this not to brag or boast, but to encourage you. If Tami and I can do it, so can you. And, there's no time like now to get started. We have an incredible opportunity coming up at Crossfit Stand our local Box where we workout.
