John (The Phantom) Pidgeon began training with us 6 months ago in order to get himself back in shape. This week he leaves to go to his army reunion very much fitter and healthier than he was at the outset.
While serving in the army, back in his glory days, John was extremely fit and a very good boxer too. He has made remarkable progress through being consistent and determined and is approaching his old fighting weight 40 years on. His journey has not been without its setbacks, but he has not let anything stop him from achieving his goals. Well done John, we are proud of your achievements and the best is yet to come.
Below is a copy of the message he posted on our site a few days ago:
Jim and April,
Well here we are six months down the track. It certainly has been an interesting journey for all concerned.
The scaling and modifying you do for those of us who need it is testament to your professional know how. I probably need it the most, but with it I’m able to fit in with most of the WODS.
As you know, for a while early on I felt like a contestant on “The Weakest Link” waiting for the boot. With your perseverance and coaching and at times you must have been wondering “what do you have here”, we got through that period.
Joining Cross Fit King has been a life changing choice – one that I’ll never regret.
I’m in the best condition I’ve been in for forty years or so and will attend the reunion feeling great.
Looking forward to the next six months for more improvement.
Once again thanks.
PS: April, now there are only two faces.
