Lost 57lbs and can now do 30 Pullups!

By jerryNo comments yet


After college, competitive athletics ended and I started down the road of weight gain and “slothlike” behavior working behind a desk. Since 2001 I have been struggling to change paths and solve this issue. I tried several different diets, workouts and sports. The good news is they all worked – I lost weight and got in better shape. The bad news is I always gained the weight back and would have to start over again. I suspect this is a challenge many people face.


In late 2007, after the birth of my daughter, I quickly realized that I needed to be a role model. I was looking for a program / trainer / system to help me lose weight, get in shape and stay there. Simply stated, I needed to get healthy and stay healthy. CrossFit Oldtown was recommended by some friends in the Jiu Jitsu community. I came to CFOT overweight and out of shape with a documented track record of roller coaster success and failure. In the last 14 months, Crossfit Oldtown has proven to be the perfect system for me to be successful and achieve my fitness and health goals. There are several reasons that CFOT worked and continues to work for me, but the top five are (all are equal in importance):

    • CrossFit system: Constantly varied makes it fun, challenging and something I want to do every day.
    • Environment: The open, welcoming and inclusive environment at CFOT allows people of all backgrounds and levels to be successful.
    • Camaraderie: When going for a PR at anything, I suggest that your probability for success is greater if you have 10 of your friends and coaches screaming for you and cheering you on, than if you are in a big gym at the squat rack by yourself. This theory applies to workouts at CFOT every day.
    • Coaches: Commitment to my success. Passion about what they do.
    • “Jerry Hill” Brand: CrossFit works, Zone works BUT the “brand I buy is Jerry Hill.” The Jerry Hill brand is Guaranteed!
