Six years of CrossFit – still making gains and having fun!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Here is a recent post on Facebook by one of our members, Tom Ford.  Tom and his wife Sue are great examples of good people showing up, doing the work and getting the results they want. Tom states that CrossFit Cleveland gives him “an environment that continues to be fun, challenging and never dull. Without that environment & coaching, it’s HIGHLY doubtful the story below would be on the same trajectory while aging from 55 to 60.”

Here’s a copy of Tom’s Facebook Post:

The numbers from today’s “Cindy” workout are a good example of writing another page in a fun & unexpected story.

When we started CrossFit, I was scared when I reflected on the trajectory of my dad’s health from about my age (55 at the time) onward & wanted to do whatever I could to take a different path with my health & fitness level in my later years. I certainly did not expect anywhere near the level of measurable improvement that happened over the next 5+ years.

Reflecting on this measurable progress in my overall health & fitness level over the almost 6 years Sue and I have been going on dates at CrossFit Cleveland, I owe a LOT to Bill & Staci for continuing to make CrossFit Cleveland an environment that continues to be fun, challenging and never dull. Without that environment & coaching, it’s HIGHLY doubtful the story below would be on the same trajectory while aging from 55 to 60.

My metrics of “Cindy” from 2014 to 2019:

1) The baseline April 2013 (starting CF): could not do even ONE real push-up.

2) July 7, 2014 (1 year into CF) Age 55 — finished 12 rounds:
60 pull-ups (using rings)
120 push-ups
180 squats

3) Jan 2, 2019 (5.5 years into CF) Age 60 — finished 18 rounds + 12 reps:
95 pull-ups (using rings)
187 push-ups
270 squats

Fun side note: today’s “Cindy” results were after playing full-court basketball for an hour at 7:30 this morning with 20-30 year olds. My shooting is worse than than ever, but I can easily run with them (actually often get down the court before them).

I say none of this to brag. As Bill often says .. “just show up and do the work” .. the results will come.
