I started Crossfit at age 41, 40 pounds overweight and not having seriously exercised for 7 years. In less than 8 months, I have lost nearly 40 pounds, 4 ½ inches in my waist and my aerobic conditioning is at a level not seen since high school. Incidentally, half of those gains were achieved within three months.
Crossfit Chicago is truly a unique atmosphere which provides distinct and diverse workouts tailored and supervised by an extremely talented core of trainers. The trainers at Crossfit Chicago are second to none. The environment is nothing like you have experienced at your usual globo gym. It is a supportive and bonding environment where everyone who commits overcomes the same physical and mental challenges together. There is competition with contemporaneous respect and camaraderie. Not only has my physical appearance metamorphosed, but I have strengthened mentally. If you are reading this with any doubts, know that it is never too late to just “jump”.
