From 45% bodyfat to 5 minute Fran! With Pics!

I was going to wait to post these until I got down to a 4 minute Fran because it sounded better but...since we opened our new place this week I thought I could use them as a sort of advertisment.

I also thought this could be a pretty good thread for overweight newbies that are thinking of giving CrossFit a go.

I started off doing the whole BB + 30 mins of cardio 4 days per week but spending 2.5 hours per day in the gym really cut into my lifestye and I probably wouldn't have been able to stick to it.

My fat loss and energy have both increased since starting CF in April...which is also when I started eating better...so special thanks to all of the food snobs in the nutrition forum

CrossFit works. You have to start somewhere and STICK WITH IT!

See the first post in my log for a bit more information in terms of where I started...

I'm around 19% BF now so I still have a ways to go...but anyway.

Here you go!!

Current Benchmarks

Fran - 5:03
Grace - 4:50
Cindy - 19 + 10 Pushups

All as Rx'd.

Thanks! I saw the #'s in your testimonial. My last Dr. appointment I had normal BP. I think it was 118/72 or something. Another cool thing is I don't have heartburn anymore. Used to take Prilosec every day.

My HDL is a bit low but has improved as well...

Re: From 45% bodyfat to 5 minute Fran! With Pics!

Oh dear, it's scary to hear that my reputation precedes me! LOL. Just curious -- which classes are you usually at? I'd love to drop by more often, except that it's an hour drive from where I am, and rush hour traffic is no fun at all. I'm thinking I might drop by tomorrow -- it'd be great to talk to you, Matt, as well as Vinny (whom I had the honor of doing a Filthy Fifty with before, haha), and work out with all the folks over at MCCF. Hopefully I will get to meet you soon!

It would be great to meet you as well!

I'm usually there every day. I run the Monday class and a few others here and there when Matt isn't around.

Group classes are all at 6:30 pm now during the week. 5:30 on Friday and 10:30 on Saturday.

Talk to you soon!
