Bio

I am 60, married with 1 grown child and 2 grandkids. I retired in 2014. I had been runner and swimmer since my 30's but nothing has changed me so dramatically like CrossFit. I began CF 1 and 1/2 years ago. I did not consider myself a well rounded athlete until CrossFit.

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat strict Paleo

As strict as I can be. I changed my eating habits when I participated in my first food challenge 3 months into my membership a a year and a half ago. I became leaner and stronger at age 60 than ever before in my life. I was a perfect example of how you cannot out -train a bad diet. I ran 20 miles or more a week with was still not "fit"

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I work out 6 times a week at CrossFit Industrious. I usually do a light run on Sundays and participate in local CrossFit competitions and 5-10K runs to keep me engaged and having fun with my CrossFit community and running buddies.

My Athletic Background

I have no athletic background besides CrossFit

I really had not background. I did not play sports in school. I was on a swim team for a short time and began swimming again at 35 years old. I have been runner for 28 years but never anything like CF and never thought I could. It has changed my whole way of looking at fitness and what it means. I have amazed myself with the progress I have made at age 60!

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

I fell in love with the energy and camaraderie from the beginning and the coaches are the best I have seen. They have encouraged me to grow and continue to do so. I will taking my certification course in the Fall. I have taken the Judges course and would like to judge events and a certification is required. I want other women my age to hear about what CrossFit can do for them.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I strictly schedule my rest days

Crossfit is hardcoded in my weekly calendar and I go 6 days a week with Sunday off! A light run or walk to recover and mobility classes help.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

1-2 years

I intend to be a lifer. I intend to improve, get stronger and push myself to the limit.
