I started at Shred in December of 2018 and have completed 219 programmed workouts. Prior to starting at Shred I worked out twice a week with my personal trainer just focusing on Olympic lifting. At that point I had fallen out of love with working out. I was unmotivated and not focusing on my health and fitness. I was making poor food choices for lunch and dinner and was eating fast food for lunch three to four times per week. Yikes!
I have always had natural athletic ability and felt I was letting it waste away. In December I signed up for my two-week free trial and haven’t looked back. Eight months of hard work and determination helped me fall back in love with fitness and push myself to live a healthy lifestyle. When I first started at Shred, I had no goals other than to show up with an open mind, work hard and come back the next day and do that all over again. Little did I know that I would end up losing 40 lbs. in just six months. Now 219 workouts later, I am determined to keep pushing myself and focus on my fitness and health every day. I am looking forward to finishing the 2019 year with more determination than ever before.
While I had to do all the “hard work” none of this would be possible without the Coaches at Shred CrossFit. Without the encouragement and coaching from them I wouldn’t be this far along in my fitness journey. It’s rare to find a gym where all six of the coaches are willing to jump through hoops to help you accomplish your goals. I also want to give a shout out to the community at Shred. The community is so welcoming, and I truly feel that Shred is like a second family. Whether we are in the gym or hanging out, I am always surrounded by the best people.
Thank you Shred CrossFit for everything!
