“In 2008 I went on a trip to Colorado to ride (motorcycle) dirt bikes (trail riding); I could barely stay on the bike. We took a picture on top of Flag Mountain (12,700 feet) and I was appalled with how I looked. I put the picture out of site and didn’t change anything until the end of 2009 when I committed myself to change. In 2010 I had lost some weight about 40lbs but plateaued and I couldn’t even run 400 meters, overall my conditioning was miserable and I was still close to 300 lbs.”
Steve joined CrossFit Central and over the course of 3 years has put in consistent effort, and though he experienced challenges, Steve has made amazing progress. In total Steve has lost 80 lbs. and 41 inches.
“The result is I have learned to recognize the excuses, doesn’t mean I will adjust quickly but now I have leverage to shut them down. Now I just say try it, put in the effort, look at the examples around you (coaches and elite athletes at CrossFit Central) if it worked for them then you’re just making excuses.”
