83 Year Old Crossfitter

By Sam Yang - Get similar updates here

83 years old woman doing a 153lb deadlift. As long as you're alive, you can still improve. It's just a mindset thing.

Use this as motivation to go out there and "push."

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt

The difference between you and the other guy isn't genetic, it's who's willing to go further. This crossfitter is blazing her own trail. Her friends and family thought she was crazy, the world thinks she's amazing.
