The New Year is all about setting a new course; which isn’t always easy. Some people strive to lose weight, eat healthier, save money, work harder, spend more time with family — the list is endless. Regardless of the resolution all are intended to change people’s lives.
Six years ago, CrossFit 215‘s Head Coach Cassie Haynes did just that — she changed her life. She vowed to become a healthier person.
Then, weighing in at about 240 pounds and smoking almost a pack of cigarettes a day, she hated physical activity.
Haynes never dreamed of training for a triathlon, running a marathon or doing CrossFit.
The last time she participated in organized physical activity was as a teenager when she did ballet. It wasn’t long she hung up her ballet shoes after her teacher told her she was too fat to be a ballerina.
PHL17’s Zachery Lashway reports on how Haynes successfully changed her life and how exercise programs like CrossFit contributed to her eminence.
