My love of sports began as a child, most of my heroes were athletes. In my youth I always played football, in my 20’s I enjoyed basketball, 30’s tennis and 40’s running, swimming and yoga. When I reached 50, “Father Time” made his presence known (knee injuries, shoulder pain, lower back pain). I was told every injury from your youth comes back to “haunt you” once you turn 50. Needless to say, I continued working out, mostly in crowded commercial gyms, treadmills, ellipticals, not to mention people constantly flexing in mirrors and scrolling on their phones while I patiently waited for the machine. I would lose weight for a season, then find every lost pound. It seemed the best way to get rid of calories, was to eat them. I knew it was time for a lifestyle change. I tried Crossfit and was hooked immediately! I found the perfect mix of strength training, cardio & nutrition, plus the support and accountability I need to keep me going and change my lifestyle for the best!
