There was a time when Reis Baron was excited to do 90 minutes on the elliptical machine – sometimes twice a day. Then his friend told him about the handstand push-ups he was doing at CrossFit. Baron walked into CrossFit NYC at 335lbs. Today he’s lost 50 lb. and hasn’t weighed himself in about four months, he says. “I’m better at my job. I’m better as a father. My son does CrossFit now. He’s 5 years old and he does CrossFit Kids near where I live. I just regret so much not doing something like this earlier,” Baron says. “There isn’t something in my life that hasn’t improved. … It will never get old.”
