40 and fit finally!!
Yes I am 40 now and have been crossfitting for almost 9 months. I was very hesitant to join our gym and quite frankly my trainer intimidated the hell out of me. " Start slow and we will see how it goes". Thanks to my most amazing trainer CHRIS, I am 50 lbs lighter and in the best shape of my life:) Yes we have our disagreements and yes I have walked away several times, but Chris does not let me quit no matter what and knows when to push me just that little bit harder. I am ever so grateful to CHRIS and grateful to be part of the crossfit commumity,and look forward to every day to see what WOD is posted. Yes you can say I am addicted and thats the way I want to stay. Thank you to crossfit for helping me find the niche I fit into. Of course a special thank you to Chris, the reason I feel as great as I do and cannot wait to see what the new year brings.

Great work, Susan! It is great to hear how much you are changing and how CrossFit, an amazing trainer, and your own hard work, are really changing your life.

Good job, and be sure to keep us posted on your progress!

Absolutely a tremendous accomplishment. I too, am a forty something, and Cross
Fit has whipped my sorry but into shape as well. As a matter of fact today was my first strict Muscle Up! Keep up the great work

I am forty as well and just started CrossFit yesterday (at a local afiliate). I have let myself go and really need to get back in shape...and CrossFit really seems to provide the variety and intensity I need to stay interested.

Look forward to participating in this community.

Im sure your trainer is great but never forget, "If you think you can or you think you can't, your right." Keep up the good work.
