Check out the “before Crossfit” picture of Tom below!!
Here’s some info about Tom Zimmerman:
I have been at the gym 4 1/2 Years.
Three things all wrapped into a story…
Back in the day… I weighed in at a solid 270, smoked a pack a day and drank a ton of soda (and beer).
I grew up in StL, and met my wife Andrea while I was managing a local bar/restaurant. Andrea’s requirement for dating was to stop smoking ( this was her out, she didn’t think I could really do it, but I did). After we had our daughter Sophia, I decided I wanted to be around awhile, so I went on a diet and lost 70 pounds over 4 months (not smart). My weight yo-yo ed over the next 4 years…when we had our son Trey (Tom the third) I decided I needed to make health and fitness a priority, I did a couple of sprint triathlons but still felt out of shape. One day, while at my daughters volleyball practice Matt Callaway invited me to try Crossfit Kirkwood. I attended a Friday night guys workout (Patrick programmed the workout) and the rest is history.
