CrossFit 190 has changed my life forever, I say CrossFit 190 because I truly believe our gym is unlike any other. Coach Corry is fantastic, he is focused on his athletes living healthier, stronger and more confident lives. I have always been athletic but not truly strong. As I got older, my body changed and I wasn't capable of performing the way I was used to. I never had to work hard to be athletic and compete. Then 1 year ago, I realized I was truly unhappy with the way I felt. i starting losing my confidence and was embarrassed to be around people unless I was in jeans and a hoodie. I was 175 lbs and felt gross! This is not the life I wanted.
Some friends had been doing CrossFit for over a year and anytime we were around them, that's what we talked about, but I was intimidated by it. When I saw CrossFit girls, I saw strong and fierce. There was no way I could do what they do. i wanted to get there though, so I decided I have to start somewhere and I tried it. One class at 190 and I was hooked. I came back for more! Corry worked with me and scaled the workouts so I could do it and I felt accomplished, I could actually do it. I was so sore and tired but I wanted to be confident, strong and healthy again so I realized I had to fight for it. One of the best things about CrossFit is anyone really can do it, it doesn't matter your age, weight or physical setbacks. you can scale anything for anyone. I was determined to be a better me and CrossFit gave me that. My competitive nature kicked in and I had to get better so I wasn't at the bottom of the board every day. I started coming 5 days a week and committed to my nutrition. I educated myself on good foods and what my body needs to perform at its best. I lost 15 lbs in 2 months, working my butt off i might add, literally. I wanted more, I wanted to lose more, get stronger and have the muscle tone. I am now down 35 lbs but have a lot more muscle. I went from 32% body fat to 18% body fat in 1 year. Strong truly is beautiful and I feel it. For once in my life, I truly feel beautiful! Nutrition is a huge part of being fit and strong and Corry educated me on that, not many coaches will do that. I know that CrossFit 190 has changed me forever and I love who I am now!
