Because looking at inspiring people who lost their gut makes burpees all the more bearable!
1. Brian Doll, lost 50 lbs in 6 months.
2. Joe Hancuff, went from this to THAT in 11 months. “I LOVE the way I look and unlike my last post, I’m almost always tearing my shirt off for the workout with pride and confidence. I’ve never been stronger, faster, more flexible than I am now and I’m only getting better. Asthma is gone. I have no pain in my body. I can sleep on my back without gasping for air. I can sleep on my stomach without vomiting in my sleep. I can run, jump, wrestle with my kids, swim the length of a swimming pool underwater in a single breath. I stand tall with good strong posture. I can now grow a proper beard.”
3. Coach Angelo Sisco of O’Hare CrossFit. “Fitness or should I say obesity has always been a major factor in my day to day life. I spent most of my life overweight,” he says. “I know what its like to be down and how to help motivate people to bounce back from any injury or mental block because I have done it. I understand what they feel because I have lost 100 pounds in my life and I am proud to say that I did it the right way through hard training and a good nutrition program.”

15. Sammi Miller of CrossFit Fire. “I remember walking in the first time thinking this would be a good experience, but that it probably wouldn’t lead to anything. I had so much fun in my Ramp-up that I decided to start going twice a week. Well, as I started getting stronger and loosing weight, I decided that over the summer I wanted to start going MORE! By summer, I was down 30 pounds and had set some lofty goals: unassited pull ups, double unders, RXd WODs, getting down to my goal weight, etc. By the end of summer, I was a size 4, achieved all those goals, and was SO close to my goal weight. I started the Better Body Challenge with the idea of honing in on my diet. Within the first week, I surpassed my goal weight (actually a pound lower)! And now, I think I’ve got another 10 pounds I can get off me. Plus, I’ve got some goals I’m working on to improve myself as an athlete.”
