I recently retired from 40+ years at the same company working in all phases of warehouse-inventory-shipping activities. I now look forward to quiet times outside in my garden or relaxing on the lake at our summer cottage in New Hampshire.  I enjoy all outside activities from gardening to water sports and hiking.

What made me join CFT was a constant voice saying join the gym- what are you doing about your health? The voice said, “you would love this gym”. He was right! He is my friend and former co-worker Rob Belcher (an original CrossFit Torque member). So when I retired, I realized I needed to get back at it.

What keeps me coming back are the varied routines. Classes are never boring and I am encouraged during the workouts. I enjoy working out in small groups- it keeps me accountable to being there and supporting others.

My favorite things about CFT are the varied workouts, small groups and constant feedback by coaches. I tend to enjoy more structured workouts and appreciate the feedback on my progress.

My proudest moment is that I have lowered and am maintaining my A1C.

Oh, and I’m able to do a burpee and flip a tire!

My biggest challenge seems to be building my shoulder strength and overall range of motion.

What advice would I give anyone looking at CFT, “Just Do It”. What fears you may have will be put at ease. All things can be adjusted so you can receive the benefits of a complete workout. 

My super power would be the ability to Teleport. I would love to go back and forth in time, that would be cool!
