I first heard about Crossfit from my cousin Christina 3 1/2 years ago, but because of a shoulder injury from the Army I was not able to workout. After surgery and physical therapy, I started going to a local gym and was not happy with the results. At this point I was over 285 pounds, wearing a size 40 pants and at 39.8% body fat. This was the heaviest I had ever been in my life! I have been playing sports since I could walk – soccer, football, baseball, golf etc. I had to do something! I decided to take the plunge and check out this Crossfit I had heard so much about. I walked in to the box October 2011 and haven’t looked back! I even got my girlfriend involved, and she had never worked out before!
This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Now, over a year later I’ve lost over 60 pounds, wear a size 34 and have decreased my body fat to below 15%.
