CrossFit West trainer Ed Evans has been leading a class specifically designed for seniors. The class, called CrossFit Boomers, meets Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays at 7AM. Ed, a former AAU weightlifting and California State powerlifting champion, is the guest writer for today’s post.
CrossFit Boomers is designed for the baby boomer and beyond.
The class addresses balance, flexibility, agility, movement patterns, and strength. As we age, we tend to to lose all of the attributes above, due in part to the natural process of getting older, but mainly due to the simple truth that if you don’t use it, you lose it. Most aging symptoms are lifestyle related and can be slowed down or even reversed. Nutrition, proper exercise, and relaxation methods can actually add quality years to one’s life. CrossFit Boomers addresses these aging issues.
The focus of CrossFit Boomers is not a blistering Fran time, a double bodyweight deadlift, or a sky scraping box jump, but rather the continuation of healthy, independent, safe, and functional living.
