Inspired by Charles Atlas, John Grimek (the great body builder) and Jack LaLanne, at age 12 I got my first barbell set and have been working out ever since. As years went on, I worked out in various gyms, tried Boot Camp, competed in Powerlifting and the Scottish Highland Games.
( I won a World’s Championship in the Masters division and was honored to be inducted into the Masters Scottish Hall of Fame) After all of these accomplishments, I was still looking for that special workout fit for me.
Then I heard about CrossFit Free. I was curious and had to check it out. I met Brandon but I wasn’t sure if I would fit in.( after all, I was 70 years old and all of the other athletes were in their 20′s and 30′s) It did seem a bit intimidating.( so was powerlifting and the Highland Games!) But, there was no way I wasn’t going to give it a try. I was hooked!
Brandon and Justin encouraged me to think young and train hard and are always there to help me to do the best I can. I feel very fortunate to be accepted by the trainers and members of this CrossFit Free family.
And never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine I would be doing muscle-ups, back levers on the rings, rope climbs, sled pushes etc. I owe all of this to Brandon, Justin and the encouragement of all the other members.
Thank you very much CrossFit Free!!!
