As Bill Adams contemplated the approach of his 40th birthday, he wasn’t very happy with himself. Growing up in Columbus, Ga., Adams had been a jock. He ran cross-country and won three state championships in wrestling.
But he quit sports when he started college at Southern Methodist University, where he earned both an undergraduate and a law degree and let himself go physically for a couple of decades. “I felt awful,” he said. “I basically had spent the preceding 20 years sitting on the couch doing nothing.” He decided he needed to get back into top physical condition. To do that, he thought he needed to commit not just to exercise but to a demanding physical regimen. “I began hearing rumblings about this crazy, intense thing called CrossFit,” Adams said.
