  • I have been a part of CrossFit Thump for a year now.   It has truly changed my life.  I am 49 years old.  I have had more surgeries than I can count but the major ones were scoliosis surgery back when I was 17 years old and two ACL surgeries on my right knee (both complete tears).  To this day, I have a broken rod in my back and because of the scoliosis I have less than 50% use of one lung.  Doctors always told me “anything to physical would be nearly impossible”.  CrossFit is amazing.  I started out unable to run a 400, had to step up on the box, and I lifted the lightest of weights.  The progress I made was incredible. My proudest moments were…. Me completing an 800 without walking, jumping up on the box, and dead lifting 135 pds.   I got stronger and faster each week.  What a sense of accomplishment I feel.  My back and my knees are strong and stable and I feel fantastic.
