I have always been an active person. Over the years I had put on a lot of weight and had been struggling to work it off. I would join different gyms, or buy a DVD from some infomercial and workout for 3 months before giving up, not seeing the results I was looking for.
I walked into Crossfit Boynton Beach in February 2011 and it has been the best thing for me. When I had started I was 35+ lbs overweight, could not run 400 m without gasping for breath, and I could not even jump onto a 12” box.
Today, I weigh 161lbs; I have learned how to eat properly. I was shown a healthier side to living and made a lifestyle change (Paleo diet). I almost won the Paleo challenge at the box. I recently completed a health assessment at work and my results were phenomenal. I have not have had results like this in over 20 years.
I am in the best shape of my life right now, faster and stronger than I have ever been. I have seen a huge improvement in my overall strength, muscle tone and cardio capacity. I am able to run without losing my breath, I can do pull-ups without the aid of a band, and I conquered the box jump.
I am a walking billboard proving that Crossfit does work. I want to thank all of the trainers and friends at Crossfit Boynton Beach who are helping me and encouraging me. I attend 5-6 days a week and I look forward to each WOD that is posted.
