Ed Powell

Ed has been participating in CrossFit since 2013 with a prior background as a college baseball player and lifelong athlete on various levels. He is 56 years old and started CrossFit weighing 230 lbs. A dramatic change in diet and CrossFit changed his life getting him to a current weight of 165 lbs. He feels like he is in the best shape of his life.  Ed became serious about the CrossFit Open in 2014 after barely making the Top 1000 in his age group, improving yearly until making the Masters Qualifier in 2016 and placing 84th Worldwide. Ed attributes much of his success to the Callus Performance product enabling him to train multiple times daily. He used to have issues with tearing in the creases of the knuckles from pull ups, kettlebell work etc.… Ed quotes: “The Callus Performance tool, while being compact enough to carry anywhere, is perfect for keeping my hands in great shape every day! I swear by it!!!” This year he was fortunate enough to place 39th in the World and 6th in the Atlantic Region for the CrossFit Open and have high expectations going into Regionals.
