My Experience With CrossFit

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

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I started CrossFit when Chris found it, beginning in a small corner of a field house and growing into his new gym. It has been expanding ever since.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I strictly schedule my rest days

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

Rest is key, especially as we get older. Dave will be 69 and I will be 66 this year, and it is crucial that we get enough recovery and rest days.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

I have been doing CrossFit for about 6+ years now. I keep going to try to stay active and strong, as the older we get the more difficult that becomes.
