1 year can change your life * Before & After Pics

This weekend marks the 1 year annaversary of when I decided to take my fitness seriously.

I was 30 years old when I started and my body was not co-operating with my diet so something had to change in the summer of 2007. Fast forward 1 year and what a year it has been. Here are a few of my before & after pics.

See my blog http://www.restlater.ca (WFS) for the full story of how fitness, and specifically crossfit has changed my life!

Thanks for the kind words Jason,

I see people every day at my globo gym looking for that magic pill....it doesn't exist. Hard work and dedication works every time!

Great work Jeff!

Similar to Jennifer Forman, Crossfit seems to have improved your tan as well

As Jennifer will attest to....the better you start to look and the better you feel about yourself, the less clothes you wear Especially in the summer.

Oh, and the lighting had something to do with it i'm sure

I noticed this as well. I must be missing the tanning booth WOD each time it comes up.

Great work though! That is a major change that could only be done with a major lifestyle change that you've obviously mastered.
