"I got my black belt after fighting 8 people in a row on top of 3 hours of exercise. It was a complete surprise until the end of the Batsugan and I'm pretty sure the 3 and a half months training at CrossFit Auckland Central was what stopped me from passing out during the process."
I really enjoy training at CrosssFit Auckland and CrossFit training is an important part of the process to attain the fitness level that is necessary for a person to partake in adventures such as the one that I have recently completed. I will become a senior citizen next week, yes, 65 burpees coming up soon. I send these photos and e mail as a message that older people can still enjoy an active physical life and reach high levels of fitness so long as they learn how to train and exercise correctly, look after their bodies in the correct manner and have a positive outlook on life.
I quit my previous gym because I didn't manage to train regularly and, between lots of work, injuries, work trips and related illnesses, I didn't manage to exercise much at all. I came into the the 30 days trial at CrossFit Auckland pretty unfit, slightly disillusioned and also feeling old, but really wanting to make the most of it. I managed to come to train pretty regularly, which is also possible because you do a communal warm-up rather than requiring your members to warm up before class.
