CrossFit Changed my life
Think CrossFit isn’t for you because you’re to old/unfit don’t train or do anything physical. Watch the testimony of 61 year old Sue Pepe, who had not done anything more strenuous than carry shopping bags for 20 years, with no previous excercise experience describe how she loves CrossFit and what it has done for her- “Changed her Life”. Look at the smile on her face throughout, it speaks volumes of her CrossFit experience.
“Just show up” was the advice given to Sue Pepe by her son-in-law. After two weeks of CrossFit, she was at a crossroads of whether to continue or give up. Pepe decided to challenge herself.
“No matter what the workout was, I came and I just kept repeating that same message to myself: ‘Just show up,’” Pepe says.
“I had been sedentary for over 20 years and wanted to get physically fit and lose weight,” she says. “When I first started, I couldn’t even run. I was walking.”
Now she says she is able to run around the yard with her grandchildren and do things she never thought possible.
“I’m actually more fit than I ever was,” Pepe says. “That’s been the biggest thing for me: getting my life back.”

A longer team WOD tonight pushing people outside their ‘comfort zones’, some excellent community spirit shown by all working in random 3’s to get the job done with an extra rest in store as we are relocating WEDS.
One of our newer athletes at CelticCrossFit-Xavier who has made some excellent progress so far losing over half as stone in a very short time, another example of how the hard work pays off and CelticCrossFit works. Good work pal (above-after tonights WOD not a fully clothed shower!)

Some good progress again with our next stage in Olympic lifting, some decent numbers for first attempts. A reminder to many that they need to hit weaknesses specifically MOBILITY, otherwise it will always remain a limitation in your performance and improvement. Spend time becoming supple. It will pay you back ten times over from just 10 minutes a day- MOBILITY WOD- do it!!
