CrossFitting since September 2018

“I joined CrossFit PTBO in Sept 2018 - just 6 months ago! I can’t believe it really. My life has changed so much in that short period of time. When I decided to join, I had been struggling with my weight, I had been dealing with side effects of medicine due to lupus for 17 years and at the age of 41, I was showing signs of heart trouble. All of that was still not enough to get me to care about myself. I am a busy mom/wife working a full time job at 43 yrs old.

The day I responded to the ad on Facebook, I sat crying on my couch. I was scared, I didn’t know if I could do it, I just knew I needed something different, I needed to care.

Now that 6 months have gone by I don’t know why I waited so long. From day one, the gym has been fun and motivating. There are no cliques, the members are welcoming and supportive, and the coaches are like no other. I have lost a total of 68in over all, gained self confidence/self worth, and I have found my smile.

I truly could not have done this alone, I had tried so many things with no results. If you are thinking about joining .. trust me, it will be the best decision of your life. Thank you, CrossFit PTBO peeps - you are all absolutely amazing I appreciate every way to go, good job! High five!

Codi - thank you for always believing in my ability and encouraging me to squat lower, lift heavier, to give it my all, and for putting up with me in general.

Leslie and Tanya- I am not sure how this happened, I am so grateful it did! You are both amazing individuals on fitness journeys of your own and yet my biggest cheerleaders. Thank you for the chats, laughs and always being there. ❤️”
