I joined crossfit 951 in December of 2012. When I started my journey I was 37 years old and weighed 305 lbs. I had been recently diagnosed as having diabetes and high blood pressure and was taking six pills a day. My first week of working out I was a bit intimidated but that quickly went away after meeting so many awesome people who kept on encouraging me during the workouts. After four months of working out at crossfit 951and changing some of my eating habits I lost 40 pounds. Around this time I had returned to my doctor for another checkup and he was surprised that both my diabetes and high blood pressure were now under control. After 7 months of working out at crossfit I was taken off of all medication. I am looking forward to many more years of working out with my crossfit 951 family.
