"Dear Matt & Wendy,
I am not a competitive crossfitter and I struggle to fit my training in around the demands of my work and family but I have stuck with the programming for the past 5/6 years as best as I can with the ongoing help and encouragement of you and your trainers.
I can't do everything and I scale all the time but, I keep showing up and pushing on believing in the process. I am 47 years old and have just been on a long planned, hiking holiday in Tasmania. I was able to, with no specific training, confidently carry a pack along a sloping beach, sometimes barefoot, over rocks and through rivers without problem. I kayaked for the first time for over 2 hours without fatigue or muscle soreness the next day. I ran down a mountain track in my togs and hurled myself into the freezing ocean without restraint or concern for how my body would deal with the challenge. I did handstands on the beach, I helped other people to navigate the physical and mental challenges of our adventure.
I was comfortable with being cold, wet and challenged as I am trained to embrace discomfort for its benefits. I felt strong, healthy, happy, adventurous, alert and alive and as such, had the trip of a lifetime. For me, this is what CrossFit training is about - it gives me freedom to explore, play and live my physical life to its fullest.
It's a great gift ... thank you."
Fitness in 100 words
“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, c&j, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. ”
