“CrossFit training has made a really big difference in my life. My love for fitness has come back, and the mini-midlife crisis is over. My insomnia is gone, and my health problems are over. I lost all the body fat and have a full six pack. I can now dead lift 430lbs! My stamina for cardio exercise is great, and I feel better then I ever have. None of this would have been possible without CrossFit. It is what I was looking for, and finally found. My hope is that people are able to get out of it even a smidgen of what I have, because it has changed my life.”
