All Hail King


Blindness, homelessness, addiction, cancer, diabetes — veteran Charles King has had more than his fair share of struggles in his 70 years. But instead of letting that break him, King found the will to survive, and CrossFit has helped him thrive.

What a hero Charles King is!! Most people would never even begin to do the things he is doing. I’m a recovering alcoholic- CrossFit has been a huge component to my sobriety. This community supports and encourages everyone - and to see what it has done for Charles brings tears to my eyes. There are no excuses to sit on the sidelines of your life and allow it to wither away. Charles embodies the hope, strength, determination, and grit of a human spirit that will inspire everyone. #hero

Such a beautiful and inspiring story. Charles is beautiful and so is his wife! Thank you for sharing. I love that this Veteran was helped by a kindhearted police officer. The awesomeness of the VA to get his health back in order and CrossFit to enrich his life through physical activity for an overall positive health and wellness.
