HELLO, MY NAME IS CINDY!
At 40+ I am only half way through this thing called life and I’m not ready to sit back and get old. In fact, when I am 80 I still plan on moving and exercising. I want to be fit for life…fit over 40 and some day fit over 80.
Why “Fit Again”?
I spent my 20’s submerged in the world of fitness. Not only was a personal trainer, but I was actively mountain biking, practicing yoga, running races, weight training, kickboxing and doing a variety of aerobic classes.
Then I reached 30… I switched careers, and ran a retail shop and started a service business outside the fitness world. It was a blast and I loved every minute of it, but it also consumed every minute of my life…
Once I hit 40, I realized I was intermittent at best with my personal fitness and no longer able to do the things I used to do. So I made some hard and fast changes. I sold off both businesses and returned to my roots. I got back in shape and wow… getting in shape at 40+ is way harder than when I was younger.
But I did it, I was Fit Again!
Then, I was in a car accident. It totaled my car and left me injured with lateral whiplash.
I healed my neck over the next six months by getting back into yoga and doing it daily. Then I decided to start running again, and get back in CrossFit, when I discovered that nagging foot pain was actually fractured bones. So, add in a boot and no activity for 4 more months.
I emerged 13 months after the initial accident once again attempting to get back in shape. Several injuries along that road set me back over and over again.
I am over 2 years past that car accident and only now back to running and back to getting Fit Again.
I want everyone who thinks they can’t do it to realize they absolutely can. Its a long, hard road and so much of it is mental. I am running again, lifting weights, doing yoga and seeing my fitness return. I am Fit Again. I couldn’t do it without my tribe so I invite you to join us and become Fit Again!
