About 7 years ago, I started research to help me transition from being a young fit athlete into becoming an Over 40 fit & healthy athlete. In the process, I discovered that the information I collected may help someone else going through such a transition as well. So I created Fit Women Over 40.
Who Am I? Turning 40, for me was the beginning of a very noticeable change in my body, weight gain, and a slow down in my abilities as an athlete.
I was a country girl turned athlete at a young age. In high school, I won numerous awards competing in 5 different sports. At college, I was a Division 1 field hockey player on a full scholarship. After college, I moved to the SF Bay Area, & joined the Cal All-Blues Rugby Team and eventually played for the U.S. National Team and was capped as an Eagle.
After 17 years of rugby, I transitioned to becoming a certified skipper for sailboats and an outrigger canoe racer and a competitive USTA tennis player.
In January of this year, I discovered Cross Fit. It has helped increased my strength and confidence in my physical abilities once again, as well as making me more agile, flexible and decreased my body fat.
There is a wealth of knowledge to be found on this subject but there is also lots of hype. Part of my mission has been to only recommend products, if I or someone I know has tested them personally.
My passion & ultimate goal is to help encourage and contribute to everyone's overall well-being.
