Mike and Gina-July 28th before CrossFit.

Mike and Gina-November 25th-current CrossFitters.

A message from Mike:
Gina and I wanted to share these two pictures with you. The first was taken July 28. It was two months since Gina had Mary Kate and right when she started Crossfit. I had been doing Crossfit, but my diet was horrible. The second picture was taken Saturday night November 25, I am actually wearing the same suit, shirt, and tie. I am down 35 pounds, thanks to following a proper eating plan you suggested and Crossfit. Gina weight is below where she was prior to having the baby and is down two dress sizes. The pictures are more than just about weight loss, but feeling better about ourselves as well. We are healthier and happier thanks to our "Crossfit Family". The support, encouragement, and enthusiasm in the box is something that cannot be mimicked at a "globo gym". These results could not have been achieved at a "globo gym" either, trust me we tried.

Pretty awesome you two! Reminds me of this:


Nikki said...

Congrats Gina and Mike! I've really enjoyed working out with you and getting to witness your transformations firsthand:) Very inspiring and keep up the great work! Mike - I was especially impressed with your dedication during no-sugar month in September. You really committed to it 100% and it shows!

Miranda said...

You two sexy biatches!!! Way to go keep up the good work. I think it is great that the both of you work out together and are so passionate about it. CrossFit KOP couples Rock!

Gina Fab said...

Thanks so much you guys! You are all so sweet and we are so lucky to have you all inspire us!

Nikki said...

I just looked back at my last baby Eva time (6/27/09). I used a 35# KB and finished in 23:26. I wonder what the chances are of me doubling everything, plus swinging a 55# KB for the first time, and still finishing in 2X my baby Eva time. Sounds like a challenge!

Megs said...

Nikki - No problem. Your pullups are spot on and the run will be no issue. Walk up to the challenge of the 55lb and swing it! You can do it - just break it down into sets of 5 or 10. (or 2 or 3 like I had to with pullups!)

donkey said...

@Mike & Gina: I don't think I've worked out with either of you yet, but I am very inspired by your transformations. As a newcomer, I love to see this kind of stuff--it keeps me pushing harder, seeing what is possible. Thank you for your awesome example.

Nice job today everyone. I showed up for CF Lite and was in awe at the puddles of sweat.

Jeff said...

Mike and Gina, you guys look amazing, it's awesome to train with you and see how far you've both come in such a short time. And Mike, it's time to get that suit taken in!
