I come from a none active family. Though as a child I played ice hockey and roller hockey, I wasn’t really supported doing any sports. In my twenties I went to the gym on and off. But back then women were not supposed to be in the weight room and I HATED the classes like aerobics etc. I have never been a cardio bunny. I wanted to lift weights! Hence why I never stuck it out in the gym. It wasn’t until in my late fourties when I discovered CrossFit. I finally found something I really enjoy. And now I’m supposed to lift heavy!! In the short three and a half years, this has become my life. I gave up smoking and drinking to become a better athlete. I can’t imagine life without CrossFit anymore...
