Midlife Fitness. Is that an oxymoron? I don’t think so. I’ve been an active Crossfitter for 5 ½ years. While I am certainly not the type of athlete you see on the Crossfit Games, working out regularly at my awesome Crossfit Box has helped me get stronger, more flexible and increased my stamina.

Recently, however, I found the workouts that I used to be able to do were getting harder. I had aches & pains that I never experienced before. I was losing my enthusiasm and motivation to exercise at all. So … I talked to my Crossfit Coach. Although he didn’t tell me exactly what I wanted to hear, I did get some valuable advice and made some changes that are helping me immensely.
