This February marks 1 year into CrossFit and healthy eating for me. 1 year ago I weighed 172 lbs. and had a high body fat % and felt sluggish!

In 2012 I had a See’s candy addiction and it safe to say I’ve eaten over 1,500 pieces of See’s candy in 2012 and still maintained a fit lifestyle due to following PALEO. I was very happy with my progression in 2012. As 2013 came and February marking my 1 year staying committed to my health and fitness I knew I needed to step it up a notch. So I gave up See’s and was fortunate to commit to a BOX at CrossFit Roseville w/ great coaches and w/ my contiuned Bay Area support from Rainer Ranier Gadduang and James Weiss from CrossFit Burlingame.

I look forward to this next year,,, because I believe it takes 2 years before your body to get in it’s groove and physically look right & tight! I ain’t gonna lie,,, I turn 45 this year and I wanna be that dude, husband, father, friend that can inspire ppl in their 40’s and it’s not to late to be fit in there 40’s… and shoot I wanna be able to wear my “board shorts” below my waist line and not above my belly button!!! haha!!!

Can’t thank Riza Gadduang Gerodias and my kids enough for allowing me the balance in my life to stay fit and for Riza being the BEST health chef I know! “remember, fitness starts in the kitchen, and the BOX is secondary” If you ain’t eating clean don’t waste your time in the BOX! “jus’sayin”

Today I weigh 153 lbs. and less body fat % than last year. I have a new addiction; PHILZ Coffee – “Jacobs Wanderbar” baby, Dynamo Donuts “Maple Apple Bacon” & Kouigh Amann,,, luckily for me those spots are not close to me… first and last stop when I visit my city by the bay SFC! —

  1. That’s an amazing story. Truly inspiring. You and your wife look incredible and are looked up to at the box. Cross fit must also be the fountain of youth as well. I had no clue you were 40. I would guess early 30’s. Keep up the good work and keep inspiring others.

    1. THX Kristina… The CrossFit community at Roseville has inspired us and is a great contribution why we continue our journey… YOU GUYS ARE OUR MOTIVATION!!!

  2. What a wonderful post! I really can’t say enough great things about Robert. I’m truly lucky to have met him and he’s the person that helped me get over being shy about jumping into a box as well as assistance with form in a few lifts I had never done before. I owe him a great deal of thanks!

    What Kristina said is absolutely true, you don’t look anything near your age, a true testament to what healthy eating and some exercise can do! Keep killing your workouts! Here’s to another year of goals to set and subsequently beat!

    I agree with Robert on his comments about the community that has been built at Roseville Crossfit. I could only take so many discussions about it at work before I had to jump in myself!
