Whether it is just out of pure boredom, recovery from surgery or the will to stay fit and keep pace with younger family members, these incredible crossfiters set new standards and all of them should be our role models!
Joyce 63 y.o.
Joyce started CrossFit 3 years ago. However she just started taking it more seriously within the past year.
Her goals are to get a muscle up, 50 unbroken double unders – her PR is 10 unbroken so far and she would love to make it to the CrossFit Games.
It's moments like this that mean everything to me. In a society where most people measure success by money, there's NO amount of money that could buy this. Being an athlete is great and all, but this is what makes my heart so full and happy! 63 yr old Joyce is back, and got a Pr of 10 double unders!! Last week she did singles in between her doubles, and this week she did them unbroken in a row. We both stopped in shock and pure happiness. We cried for 10 minutes and then it was right back to work 😭😂 Keep showing others that age ain't nothing but a number Joyce! #onamission #goals #nolimits @crossfit
🤳🏼 @jamiejoyce2 ・・・ I had to post this. Joyce is 63 years young and completely inspiring! We worked together yesterday and I just watch her in awe. Her drive, her work ethic, the things she can do… she's incredible! I mean, look at her pull ups and toes to ring! We started with 1 and 1 and yesterday she got 2 and 3!! Born with a congenital hip dislocation, she's had over 10 corrective surgeries. Never letting that stop her in the past, she started @crossfit 3 years ago. However she just started taking it more seriously within the past year. Her goals are to get a muscle up, 50 unbroken double unders (she got 20 yesterday!), and would love to make it to the @crossfitgames Dreams truly have no age limit. Thank you Joyce for showing us how it's done 💪🏽🙌🏽❤️ #inspiration #motivation #crossfit #crossfitcommunity
Mike 72 y.o.
Mike suffers from atrial fibrillation, but that doesn’t hinder him following our inclusive programming. He always finds that post training he has a regular heart rate & feels great.
🤳🏼 @crossfitcirencester ・・・ It's time for the @crossfit #community to meet one of the wonderful athletes we have @crossfitcirencester. This is Mike. Mike is the epitome of what we do at CF Cirencester. We simply make people better, we help them believe in themselves, we surround them with other people who believe & amazing things happen. Mike is 72 years old and that's a 30 inch box jump. Don't under estimate the benefits of #crossfit programming & #GPP General Physical Preparedness. Mike suffers from atrial fibrillation, but that doesn't hinder him following our inclusive programming. He always finds that post training he has a regular heart rate & feels great. He doesn't use it as an excuse. Be the best you, be like Mike!
Ray Damerell 72 y.o.
On the contrary to other Crossfiters that we chose Ray hates workout but he is aware of how beneficial it can be for everybody´s health. CrossFit helps him in everyday life. For example when he fell he knew how to get up and don´t get injured.
Shirt game = legendary – "Ray Damerell is 72 and has been training with me for over two years. He absolutely hates working out, but does it because he knows he needs it to stay healthy! – Just the other day, he tripped at home and fell down and DIDN'T injure himself because of our training. I told him this is why we do so many burpees! He now knows how to fall and get back up without hurting himself 🙂" –Kate Bell, @crossfit_chinohills 📸 @fraziergraphix #crossfit
Patricia 72 y.o.
This incredible lady from CrossFit Belltown set a 3 RM deadlift PR at 155 lb.
Javier in his 70´s
Javier is taking his training very seriously because he knows its a shortcut to healthy and long life. Watch his rowing, Hollow Rocks and burpees. They will convince you his is one fit self-aware guy.
This is Javier. He is an inspiration to me every time he comes into the gym. Not only is he coming in to throw down while in his 70's, he is forthcoming about his injury history, asks questions, and takes coaching well in order to make progress. Yesterday I shared a video where @cfceo talked about the importance of functional capacity for not just longevity of life, but longevity in quality of life. You know how I know this is true for Javier? When I don't see him on a Sunday, it's because he is out sailing with his wife. #goals #inspiration #crossfit #fitness #longevity #functionaltraining #grateful #coach
Unfortunately we don´t know more about Ann´s passion for CrossFit but you can see that she is a hard-worker straight away from this video and her burpees!
Kathleen started with CrossFit in 2015 because her son loved the sport and she was curious about his passion. She was looking for something community based and CrossFit was the right choice!
📸 @wodtographer My buddy @wheelhousewolf coach and co-owner at Crossfit Wheelhouse @crossfitwheelhouse recently posted on FB the phrase "I'm going to wait until I'm in better shape to start Crossfit." No one has to wait to be in 'better shape' 💞 It's been a few months since Kathleen @kathleenhain has joined us at Manayunk Athletics @cfmyarmy. She works hard and is one of the kindest folks I know. I asked her why she joined and this is her reply… "Hi! My son has been a member since 2015 and he speaks so highly of Crossfit in KofP and I guess I wanted to check it out. I wanted to do something that was community based and I found it! Everyone couldn't be kinder to me and in today's world I really appreciate that. Love all the people there! No judgement. Thank you so much! ❤️" #womenwholift #wodtographer #philadelphiaphotographer #fitnessisfun #crossfit #crossfitwomen #mastersathlete #ageisjustanumber #moveyourbody #whatsyourwhy
Bob 78 y.o.
Bob is real role model. He has a heart transplant and does CrossFit 3 times per week. If Bob´s heart surgery is not an excuse, then you can´t have none!
🤳🏼 @corintthian This warms my heart so much. This is Bob. He is 78 and has a heart transplant. Bob does Crossfit 3x a week. One of his favorite names is Cory because he has a granddaughter named Cory. I am inspired every time I see Bob and so grateful to have coached the senior class today. #Crossfit #dcf #desertcrossfit #crossfitseniors @crossfit
Connie in her 70´s
Connie started with CrossFit through women´s cancer survivor fitness program. She trains 2-3 times per week. Connie is another great example that there is never time to give up.
Regardless of your age, hard work benefits us all. Connie is in her 70's and has been diligently coming to our #kcflegends program 2-3x/wk. she is also one of our many ladies that came to us through our involvement with Survive & Thrive, a women's cancer survivor fitness program. You can have excuses or you can have results. Be like Connie and choose the latter. #crossfitmasters #ageisjustanumber @crossfit
Larry Scalf 72 y.o.
Larry is the oldest and longest standing member of CrossFit Ktown. Check out his back squats and you will have no doubts that is all about mindset.
