I have always tried to be active. I have belonged to numerous gyms, had workout equipment in my basement and tried a running program. Nothing really motivated me because I never really pushed myself to get results. My wife suggested I try CrossFit to help give me the push I needed.

Lee and Donna began talking about a diet that was an option but was widely used in the CrossFit Community. It was called Paleo. I was interested because I have been overweight most of my adult life. I tried supplements, Atkins (twice) and Nutrisytem (3 times) and always gained the weight back. I borrowed a book and was on my Paleo journey.

I highly recommend Pennington CrossFit to anyone who likes to be challenged or needs that little extra push. You will be glad you did. I know I am
