My weight has yo-yo'd between 200 and 230 for the last 10 years or so.
Translation: between 20 pounds overweight and "Damn, you're fat."
With moderately high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol levels,
my doctor tried to get me on medications for both - while I was in my 20's!
Enter CrossFit Blacksburg. I started out training twice a week for six months and
noticed some solids gains in my strength and conditioning.
When 2011 rolled in, I decided to challenge myself to come in even more frequently, and
my times have continued to come down and my lifts keep getting heavier.
When I actually began to eat somewhat "paleo," my weight started to come down too -
I'm at about 190 right now, and I haven't heard another peep out of the doctor about those pills!
At 32 years old, I'm as fit as I've been since high school, WAY stronger, and I'm still improving each week.
