Rusty Thrusters - Sponsored Athletes

The Rusty Thrusters of CrossFit Kirkwood, sponsored by Depends, KY, WD-40, and Metamucil.

Lots of people get confused when they see CrossFit on TV. They think that it is for former college athletes or twenty-somethings with nothing to do all day but workout.

That is just not the case.

I have no idea how old the Rusty Thrusters are. I am 31, and I assume they are older than me. Watching them compete last Saturday next to teenagers, 20-somethings, 30-somethings, etc… was nothing short of inspring. (And they held their own, I might add.)

Strength, Drive, and Hard Work know no age.

Congratulations on a good show last Saturday, RT’s. You’re very much what this 31-year-old aspires to be the Rustier I get. Keep up the strong work.

  1. I’m proud to say that I am one of the Rusty Thrusters! And in case you’re wondering, we are all 50+ and are all so thankful for our good health and for finding crossfit before it is ‘too late’. Crossfit is such a welcoming community of healthy people at all ages working to the best of their ability. We loved being a part of the competition right in there with everyone else! Thanks Crossfit 314 for organizing such a fun and well run event!
