Crossfit works

Hey i started this program 1 year ago and i have lost over 80 pounds. I was almost 320 pounds last July and my health was going down hill fast. I was unable to perform my job and in my profession you need to have good health. I decided to do something when my blood pressure was 160/98 at a resting state and i would get short of breath when i bent over to tie my shoes. So i want to say thank you to Steve and Caleb at Cherokee Health and Fitness in Maryville TN for helping me to better myself. If I can lose all that weight anybody can just takes effort. Thank you crossfit.

Re: Crossfit works

Awesome - I look forward to meeting you.

We have a good group of about 5 or 6 guys that really try to keep the intensity up and cheer each other along.

I look forward to meeting you ...

On a side note - a friend of mine (who used to be 200 lbs and muscular) has grown over the last 3 or 4 years to 356 lbs.

He has just started a CF type workout along with dietary changes and is trying to get back to the 200s again - your story will be real inspirational for him ....

Re: Crossfit works

Wow! What a way to get your life back. When you're carrying around so much weight, daily life just becomes so much more difficult. I'm sure you're amazed at what you're able to do now, that you would have never dreamed of before. I am a firm believer in being comfortable in the skin you're in, but I plan on being as able as humanly possible for as long as I can, which certainly involves keeping in shape. It is people like you that end up making people like me work just that much harder.
