after the doctor told me to lose some weight.
My wife had spoken about CrossFit and I decided to do a little research. On face value, my initial thoughts were Crossfit was for elite athletes and did not cater for overweight middle age dads… how wrong I was.
The first day I walked through the doors of CrossFit Brookvale I was welcomed in by a warm friendly team who set about working with me to achieve my goals of losing weight. Not only was the CrossFit Brookvale team professional and welcoming, but also the gym members were also super encouraging and supportive (something I had never experienced before training at regular gyms).
The results were rapid and life-changing, I lost over 14kg’s, shifted my focus on what’s important, stress levels have dropped, work is going better, have got into Obstacle Course Racing, met a bunch a positive great people on the northern beaches and best of all my wife has joined CrossFit and we are now crossfitting together. The funny thing is, the biggest change hasn’t been the weight loss, its been my perspective on life and being more active with my family, this has been the most valuable part of the change.
When you are over 40 you place a ceiling on what you are capable of, a few months with the team at CrossFit Brookvale and you won’t know yourself. Anyone who is frustrated with where they are, live on the northern beaches and are ready to make a change, should drop in at CrossFit Brookvale – it will change your life!
All you have to do is make it to the next workout and enjoy the ride”
