 In Success Stories

I am 80 years old, soon to be 81 in December, which just happens to be my 59th wedding anniversary. I spent 20 years, 22 days, 6 hours in the USAirForce and I hold a Grandmaster rank of 8th degree in Tae Kwon Do.

Most of my strength training was in a gym, that was until I heard about this thing called ” CrossFit “. I started Crossfit in 2012, I had two boxes close on me, and then I heard about Crossfit Igneous. By now I was 78 years old I thought that I would give them a try. Then this year the bottom fell out.I had a very bad infection that put me into the hospital for two months, along with three back surgeries.

The support I received from the members of Crossfit Igneous was amazing.

The doctor told my son, ”If your dad was a normal 80 year old he would never survive the infection, but because of his strong body he overcame the infection.”

I would never go back to a gym, two things pull me through one of the hardest time in my life- The Power of Prayer and Crossfit. A BIG thanks to all the instructors at Igneous.
