Mark E. Wallace's One-Year Crossfit Testimonial

One year ago today, I started Crossfit. Please hit this link if interested in reading my testimonial. Link is wfs. Brace yourself though. It's a long read.

I give credit in the testimonial to my coaches, my Crossfit Leander family, and my family family. I want to also add that many of y'all have been of tremendous help to me as well. Thank you.


- Mark

Re: Mark E. Wallace's One-Year Crossfit Testimonial

Mark, Congratulations! I know that sticking to something is really hard, but everyone can tell that you are doing what you love. You are a great inspiration for everyone here and your testimonial is a proof that with dedication everything is possible.

Crossfit on!

Carlos.

Re: Mark E. Wallace's One-Year Crossfit Testimonial



So much love for ya, buddy. The haters can say what they want to say about CrossFit, but it IS an amazing vehicle to help people change their lives if they are willing to get up every morning and get their crap done. And, the coaches and community you describe are just as important as whatever the WOD may be. Nice job.

"Today I am at 33 and am (now get this) actually considering changing my focus away from fat loss and over to gaining strength." You know I'll support you .

Yep, I know, Tam. I might need the support too.

Incidentally, the fresh body shave for the pic was done just for you.

Re: Mark E. Wallace's One-Year Crossfit Testimonial

Not only will Tamara support you, she'll probably Deadlift you too! (She's tricky, that one. Watch her every...single...minute.)

Great testimonial, and great work! You're one of the inspiring people for those like me too, and it's wonderful to see how far you've come in a year. What will next year bring?!

Re: Mark E. Wallace's One-Year Crossfit Testimonial

Thats a good read Mr. Wallace! I would estimate that just about everyone who is over 30 at their first CF workout probably came from a similar (if not the same) place. I can definatley say I came from the same place.

Congrats to you, and thanks for sharing!

Don't worry. There is a whole network of fun and supportive people over on the Dark Side also. And, yeah, I refrained from commenting on the shaving. Sigh. S'okay. Whatever makes YOU happy, haha.

The best part is that I can deadlift the pre-CrossFit Mark also, which I couldn't do a month or two ago. Now, I could use him as my deadlifts in a WOD...if I still did WODs .
