On December 24, 2014 Palmetto CrossFit officially closed it’s doors. We left this page up out of love for Tripp and so that someone might still be inspired to make health and fitness a priority.
Tripp Oldham was a 21 year old who suffered from Cystic Fibrosis his entire life. Despite his physical limitations, he loved CrossFit. Sometimes he would be in the box with IV medications running. Other days he would have his oxygen strapped to his back doing whatever he could. His dream was to compete one day.
Unfortunately, his path was different. On May 20, 2013, he left this physical world but his spirit is still around us. Until the very last moments of his life, he never gave up. He lived every moment to its fullest and pushed his body to the extreme. His journey of love, strength, determination and passion inspires us everyday to be the best we can be, live the life that we are meant to live and give to others along the way.
As the former owner of Palmetto CrossFit and Tripp’s mother, I urge you to be inspired by the legacy Tripp left behind and protect the body you were given through fitness. He wasn’t lucky enough to have a healthy body but he sure did try his best to keep it going as long as he could
“One Love” forever!
