Addicted! That is what I am. Why else would a retired 56 year-old woman get up at 4:00 in the morning, check her computer for the WOD while having a cup of coffee and drive 40 minutes across town to workout at CrossFit Northwest Tucson? My husband and friends in SaddleBrooke think I am crazy, but they don't know what I know. I know that this gym is amazing. They are welcoming to all ages and abilities with coaches that push you to become the best that you can be.

Each day the workout is different and challenges me to do things that I would never do on my own. I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been and more aware of my diet. How many woman my age weigh 100 pounds and can dead lift more than her weight or do double unders? Not only are the coaches inspirational, the clients that I workout with are warm, fun and inclusive to someone who is old enough to be their mother. CrossFit NorthWest Tucson is preparing me for the years ahead. Thanks to them, I know I will be well prepared for what the future brings me.
