Wow! Where to begin? I canâ€™t believe that 6 months ago I decided to attemptÂ CrossFit! All I had to do was look around at my amazing family and see the results, and the constant conversation at family dinners aboutÂ CrossFit. Still, I was not convinced that someone as out of shape, overweight, and most of all, 61 years old could ever do any of the work outs I kept hearing about. Of course my amazing husband, who is forever young at heart and so optimistic said he was going to try it. The day finally came, and I was scared to death! I had no clue what to expect ,and I again asked what the heck am I doing here? From the very beginning, it was difficult and scary at the same time. But somehow I was enjoying my self. It took me a couple of months to just get use to the routine of going toÂ CrossFit and the constant soreness I was experiencing. But, as I went along, I could already feel and see changes. I felt stronger and I started to lose weight. Today, after 6 months I have lost 30 pounds! All the coaches atÂ CrossFit Relentless have been absolutely wonderful. They are always encouraging and challenging me. At the same time , they know exactly what you are capable of doing. The people that come toÂ CrossFit are like family, always so kind and encouraging. Iâ€™ll continue to go toÂ CFR as long as this old body allows me, but my mind will always say YES! Jane Mailloux
