I started Savage Masters because as a 48 year old fitness and nutrition enthusiast, I found that despite all of the incredible information and welcoming communities available, there didn’t seem to be any that spoke specifically to people like me. I am a Masters athlete. A married mom of two teens. I have a full time job that I enjoy. I’m a nutrition nerd and I love to work out. From my softball playing days as a youth, to aerobics in my late teens and college days, to marathon running into my early 40’s and now I’ve fallen in love with crossfit and powerlifting – I’ve run the gamut. But the thing is, I love to train. I mean I love to push myself to learn as many new things as possible while challenging my body to do things I never thought I could do. I lift heavy, run hard, jump high and have the best time doing it. I refuse to settle down just because I’m no longer a teenager. And I’m finding more and more people who are just like me. Yes, we know we have to take care of our bodies (who doesn’t). Yes, we have busy lives to balance (again, who doesn’t). No, we aren’t professional athletes. But we revel in challenging ourselves to continue to learn and grow and enjoy ourselves in the process. This is a place for us. For us to share training ideas, thoughts on recovery, nutrition and life in general. I am not an expert in any of these things but I have an unsatiable curiosity and am looking forward to sharing my journey as I hear more about yours.
