I’m now 53 years old and have been doing Crossfit for 4 years, I’m certainly not young but I feel like I can do anything. Since starting Crossfit my whole body has changed shape; I have lost over 4 sizes. Everything is stronger but the best feeling is the strength in my core, this helps me in so many ways, like lifting, standing and sitting. My strong core helps my posture I now stand tall. I used to have a lot of shoulder trouble but since I’ve built so much strength in it I no longer have pain or problems.
My self confidence has improved too! Each time I push myself through a tough workout I feel proud and accomplished. Workouts that I’d look at and think ouch I can’t do this but with the push of our coach we can and it is one of the best feelings once you’re done. This confidence stays with you as you continue. No more beating yourself up for not exercising. – Teresa C.
