100 pounds worked off with CrossFit, diet and community

Osprey athlete Gareth Stephenson shares his story – an 18th month journey to lose weight, gain strength and fitness for every day life and ultimately reshape his lifestyle for the better with the help of CrossFit, rebuilding his diet, and the support and friendship of the welcoming community he found at Osprey Athletics. Gareth isn’t the rule, but he’s not the exception either. He’s one of countless athletes at Osprey Athletics and at CrossFit gyms around the world discovering the recipe for a healthy life in and out of the gym.

Gareth’s story was shared by CrossFit Inc. on its social media channels, reaching more than 65,000 views across Facebook and Instagram.

To celebrate the inspirational achievement of having worked off more than 100 pounds as an athlete at Osprey Athletics, his classmates and coaches gathered after class that week to make a small presentation to Gareth to mark the milestone.

Global News Morning brought Gareth in with coach Jean to talk about his fitness success!

CrossFit CEO Greg Glassman has pointed out that while a few hundred of the CrossFit affiliates have sent an athlete to the CrossFit Games, many times that many affiliates have helped a member lose more than 100 pounds. That is the real story of CrossFit – not just the impressive number of 100 pounds, but what that represents. The story is behind that number – the life-changing fitness that CrossFit affiliates help their members achieve. Gareth is one of the many athletes at Osprey committed to making their lives outside the gym better by working hard in the Box (CrossFit-ese for “gym”).
