Marissa’s CF Story

Age for me is not an excuse not to be able to perform difficult moves or move heavy objects. I love going to CF and being a part of an extended family.

I love CF! A friend told me to check out Corps Fitness 6 years ago. I came in to just ask questions, but Chris was there, told me I was ready and join in the class, and the rest is history. Chris is such a great motivator, love him lots, and the instructors are all awesome. Everybody that works out at Corps Fitness is so helpful and supportive. In the time since I started there, I have managed to accomplish big hurdles every year. Even though I don’t love running, I started by doing a few 5Ks. Then I moved on to 10Ks, ran a half marathon in 2014, and in 2015 I also competed in a duathlon using the hand cycle for the bike portion. This year, I competed in All Out in Berks as one of the oldest competitors. I can do pull-ups, rope climbs and many other tough exercises, but I still see room for improvements and more accomplishments….I would love to do a muscle up, and would like to get better at double unders. I do have an injury that holds me back sometimes. I may perform my exercises slower for some things, but I do that so I do not compromise my form. Age for me is not an excuse not to be able to perform difficult moves or move heavy objects. I love going to CF and being a part of an extended family.

    Well deserved. I remember your words of “you’re as young as you feel” during one the hero workouts that helped me push myself to end.
    An inspiration to others too. Way to go!!!!!
