I had a friend invite me to join La Vernia CrossFit and I’m so glad I took her up on the offer. It has changed my life! I went from never wanting to get off the couch to never wanting to miss a day of working out.

I didn’t want to try CrossFit cause I didn’t see the point of the bruises, scrapes, blisters, soreness, etc. and well of course there was the lean, trim, muscular stereotype which I certainly did not fit… Well long story short, that first scary step was the biggest step and three years later here I am 🙂 It’s definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made!

In 3 months I have changed my body and life in SO many ways. I can’t wait to see what the future holds! Seriously addicted to CrossFit now, and I can’t thank my coaches enough- you guys seriously saved me.

I have learned so much about myself in the past year. It’s not just about being fit. My mind is stronger, my skin is thicker, and my confidence is higher. My coaches and this box and my fellow athletes are my family!!

When I started I was fat lethargic depressed and couldn’t even get out of my own way. I was 265lbs of chewed bubble gum who was growing out of size 38 waist pants and couldn’t run for more than 400 yards without coughing my lungs up. A year later I am down to 225lbs and stronger than I was in high school if not in better shape. If you want to make a positive change in your life this is the place to start. It’s a place where the trainers and athletes are more like family than strangers you see at the gym. It’s a place of positivity and pushing your self further than you thought you could possibly go.

Love the opportunity God has given me to do what I love to do. Investing in others happiness. Only 2 years out of the lifetime I have ahead and my heart is already overflowing. I am still grateful for the day I stepped into my first CrossFit box, changing my life FOREVER. If I would have listened to my excuses “I’m too fat to do that” “my mind just isn’t right” “I’m way too busy right now” “my baby is still too little” “I’m scared” etc.. then I would not be as emotionally, mentally and physically strong as I am today! -FIND YOUR STRONG-
