Wow, It Works!
Wow! I cannot believe (well, as hard as I am going at it, I guess I should believe) what improvements I have made! I started Crossfit last January, and I am just barely able to complete the WOD's. At 53 years old, I am not taking a chance on blowing out any ligaments, so I scale down the loads, and my times will never catch up to the animals on the website, but my body fat is peeling away, and my muscle definition is rockin'!

Here is what I love: My cardio is way up, no treadmill or stationary bike. My core is rock, no abs machines or silly wasted movements, my muscle definintion, and my weight, are comparable to my gymnastics competition days, thirty-something years ago.

Website videos are awesome! You guys, AND gals are beasts! I want to be like you! Somebody congratulate me. Thanks, ahead.

Re: Wow, It Works!
Hey Richard, congratulations on (a) finding CrossFit, and even more (b) still being in the stunt industry at 53. Seriously, I gotta suspect that you're already in pretty fine shape if you're doing that. I'm that age, and there's no way I'd be falling off a mezzanine for a living.
