“My name is Ken McGauley. I am 61 years old and if you ask me how I feel, I will (most days) tell you “tired and sore”. But of course, for most of you in Crossfit, you already know that this is normal and probably a good thing. If you tell me Crossfit is fun, I will tell you that you don’t know what “fun” actually means. But really, the people at TFF are genuinely FUN and supportive. There is always someone rooting you on and encouraging you to give it your all.
This all started with my wife, who has been at TFF longer than me and who always told me that I should try it and insisted that I would like it. She was pretty persistent! Finally, I gave in. Well, I can’t lie – I do! Yes, it is tough sometimes (OK, all the time) but it is well worth it. At present I have lost approximately 50lbs and feel much better and healthier than I have in a long time. My blood work has changed dramatically, some of my medications have been decreased, and my doctor is pretty pleased with the changes I’ve made.
Recently, I competed in a Seniors’ Competition. It was probably the best sports competition I have ever been apart of! The people there were great. Sure, I came in last place, but that didn’t matter because the Crossfit community is made up of terrific, non-judgmental people, and I enjoyed the event so much!
I’d like to give a big shout out to my coaches and all the people at TFF who encourage me to do my best. It is my honor to work out with all of you! Thanks!”
