I walked into Crossfit Valley Park at 49 years old, completely out of shape, and extremely overweight. In my first session, I wasn’t even able to make it through the warm up routine and I truly thought I wasn’t going to be able to do Crossfit. I was wrong. I was able to do it because I wasn’t alone. I quickly found out I had an entire community to help me. They picked me up when I failed, they encouraged me to keep taking steps forward, and most importantly celebrated every little success with me. That was 110+ pounds ago. Crossfit gave me back my life and I will be forever grateful.
