58 years old and recently diagnosed with osteopenia, JoJo Wadleigh knew she needed to make a change in her life. She took the advice of her daughter and joined the local CrossFit gym. 4 years later, she is fitter than she has ever been, off her medications, and competing among the best athlete's in her age group.
This is JoJo's story.
When I first started cf almost a year ago I was definitely out of shape. My left shoulder was always bothering me from tendinitis which has been a problem for the last ten years.I could not sleep well at all, also due to not eating well.
Growing up I have always been active from riding dirt bikes, training and competing with my horses. In high school I ran xc and set records at our home course . I was also on the wrestling team and was always in the gym training. I have had people tell me CrossFit is silly it’s dangerous, or that it’s a cult. It’s actually the extreme opposite. I have a great set of friends/family from my box. Eric and Sarah are unlike anyone I’ve ever met they are very passionate about their gym and that’s what I love the most.
To sum it all up I love the atmosphere in CrossFit Nashua/Souhegan everyone no matter what level you are on pushes themselves to the max. You break the typical ego’s no one is better no one is worse, to me it reminds me of the wrestling, team everyone wants you to do your best!! I can say that I have zero to no pain in my shoulder I sleep great I’m eating better and at almost 30 years old I think I’m in better shape then when I was 18. Thank you CrossFit!
