Kev’s Success

It’s a year to the day that I first walked into CrossFit Tamworth and first met Mark and Beth. I first became aware of CrossFit on a holiday to America and was intrigued to see a lot of their members were of my age group (thinking ‘I could do that !’).

At the time I was disappointed with my level of fitness and resigned to continued deterioration has I entered my late 50’s. I was already overweight and taking medication to control high blood pressure although I had invested in a home Gym and dabbled with running spurred on by my son. 

But I was lacking motivation and genuinely bored with both activities !

Feeling a little awkward and silly I took the plunge and booked onto a fundamentals class with Beth. An hour later sweat dripping and my limbs aching having been put into different positions like never before, I was so sore but totally  hooked !

Having played Rugby up until my late thirties my strength was decent, but the flexibility needed to perform many of the exercises was shocking. But things are improving Mark assigns a number of stretching exercises tailored to my shortfalls and this old body is starting to react positively.

CrossFit Tamworth was for me ! The personnel professional level of training the camaraderie and helpfulness among fellow members was humbling and so motivating.

Everyone works at their own level striving to increase performance and with it their health and strength whilst helping their fellow members through each workout.

One year later I am half a stone lighter, 2 inches off my waist, eating healthy and breaking personal records in weight lifting moves but most of important to me as of this week no longer taking medication for high blood pressure for which I am most proud and my GP most baffled.

Mark even gave me the encouragement to enter competitions (See Photo) this year which I never ever thought I would be doing but enjoyed immensely.

CrossFit worldwide seems to have the same ethos and I have been lucky enough to drop in to CrossFit gyms around the world this year and take part in their workouts with confidence.

Fast approaching 58 now my only regret is I didn’t find CrossFit Tamworth earlier, however now I have I intend to keep going as long as I can and encourage anyone whatever age or fitness level to do likewise.
