Nancy and I started our crossfit journey with CrossFit 970 on May 3rd, 2012. I had been hearing and reading about crossfit for a while and wanted to try it, because I was in a deep workout rut at the globo gym. My son Joey called from Arizona to inform me of a crossfit box in Windsor and I stopped by to check it out. I asked Nancy if she wanted to try it with me, and to my pleasant surprise she agreed! We have never looked back.

I try to WOD 5 times per week, occasionally going on Saturdays, while adding in additional strength training 2-3 times per week. Nancy gets in 3-4 times per week. We have attended every class time and have enjoyed the different people in the various classes. However, our normal time slot is 4:30…it works well for our schedule and we have developed some great friends in this time slot. We are taking applications for anyone who would like to join our close-knit class.

Crossfit has been great for Nancy and I. In our 50s (that’s as specific as I’m going to be) we both feel and look as great as we have in years. I have a very specific goal of finishing in the top 200 in the world in my age class in 2015. In addition, we both desire to steward our bodies and stay as healthy as possible as long as possible, in order to represent Jesus Christ well, and enjoy the friends and family the Lord has blessed us with.

Over the years I have heard horror stories and read negative facebook posts on crossfit. Maybe some of these are true, and not just written by uninformed naysayers. However, I can tell you that our experience with CrossFit 970 has been amazing. They have fantastic well-trained coaches who really care for each individual working out. They train us in the proper movements and are more concerned about safe lifting, than they are about heavy lifting. My wife and I are a great example or their coaching.

I would like to compete more and Nancy enjoys coming in several times a week to feel (and look I might say) great. The coaches are in tune with our goals and they have uniquely and specifically helped us obtain them.

Thank you CrossFit 970! We are grateful to have found you!
