This Instagram page proves that one can start working out at any age, from 7 to 70. There are funny videos of kids exercising as well as those of old people working out, because age is just a number at Crossfit. From inspiring stories to correct postures to healthy recipes, you can look up all these and more. Don’t miss out the video where one of the functional adaptive trainers is training an athlete with spinal cord injury. It is our favourite for sure!

“We scale load and intensity; we do not change programs.” In other words, “the needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.” Why? “Because everyone, of every age and ability, will benefit from the practice of functional movements...”

Yes, he is the fitness instructor who has worked with Victoria Secret models. Do look up some of his action-filled videos. The reason we paused on this account is because he believes “be the best you can be with the body that you’ve been given”. So sit at home and try some of his workout moves because it’s never too late to start. Even if you don’t end up becoming a Victoria Secret model, you are sure to become a healthier version of yourself because he says, “3 months from now, you will thank yourself”.
