His nickname is well earned. Steve Himmelman took his health into his own hands and decided enough was enough. He started with us right as we were starting our "Paleo Challenge" and he ended up winning. His dedication to diet and exercise was unbroken. In his first year of CrossFit he competed in the Heart of America CrossFit Challenge. We announced the 6th Affiliate Cup yesterday and guess who contacted us first? Yes, Steve is in, ready to battle. His story is inspirational. We can all learn something from his accomplishments. Hat's off to Steve.

    OMGosh Steve, that is truly awesome! It's stories like this that keep me motivated to keep getting better and not just settle for good enough.
    I would also like to give a shout out to Tonya. I expressed to her how frustrating kipping pullups have been for me. In the middle of Cindy tonight she came over and encouraged me (ok, yelled at me and wouldn't go away) and I started getting all 5 when at the beginning I was getting only 3 and then 2.
    I know we need to believe in ourselves, but there is a lot of power that comes when someone else believes in you.
    I didn't get to thank you Tonya. You may have left when I was on the floor gasping for air.
    But also thank you VP crossfit. This is what you instill in all of us. Community and support, no matter where we are in our fitness journey.
    So glad to be back in the fold.

    That is a man on a mission. You are a huge inspiration to everyone you have met. Keep going, your thresholds will only get more challenging and the rewards for destroying them will keep getting sweeter.

    Awesome, Steve. It's been great watching the progress you've made. You keep going this way and pretty soon we'll be calling you Skinny Steve!!!

    Steve, what you have accomplished thus far is amazing, but i know you have even bigger goals and the work ethic that it will take to get there. Keep working your ass off! It's great to see how motivated and dedicated you are.

    Steve, you have accomplished goals that are just incredible! To see the transformation of your progress and strength everyday has been such an inspiration. I honestly do not know many people who have the heart and determination that you do. I am so proud of you and I know that the CFVP family is so happy to have you! 🙂

    Steve also completed Warrior Dash in October. His physical appearance is only a small part of his amazing transformation in progress.
    Great work Steve, keep battling bro!

    The words "thank you" can't express my gratitude toward each and every one of you. My goals would have never been accomplished without all of you. In some way all of you have helped me progress forward. I am forever grateful to everyone. My life has changed for the better. And I'm not gonna stop. Less than 3 months till the affiliate at TNT. That is next on my list. Thanks again Cfvp. I wouldn't have gotten this far without you.

    Hey, Steve! I remember when you first started and how you were determined to fight for yourself. You have not once waivered from your goal and I applaud you for that. Keep it up and continue the fight! You are a true inspiration!
