I began CrossFit because I was beginning to feel old and I was either going to work at getting fit or fat. I wanted to be able to play with my grandchildren as I grew older and did not want to be exhausted after only being with them a few minutes. I also wanted to be able to go out with my children and be active with them and not be worn out after a short while. Last September I saw all this fulfilled when we went to Outer Banks, North Carolina and I was able to play in the ocean with my children and grandchildren for as long as any of them wanted to be there.
