“I am leaner, stronger, more toned, faster, healthier, happier and more fit than ever before!!”
Prior to CrossFit Central I was a typical 20 something striving to discover myself and figure out what I wanted post-college. I was working long hours as an event planner but never settled into my career as something I wanted to do long term. I was always looking for the next best thing.
I was also a typical 20 something in that I was never confident with my appearance or my body, especially living in Hollywood. I thought I should look like the super skinny models in magazines and was constantly aiming to achieve that by going to the gym for 2 hours, spin class, kickboxing, boot camps, running, yoga, you name it. Basically I was unhappy with myself and my life but I don’t think I realized it until I discovered true happiness through CrossFit. It became my outlet and gave me a healthy focus instead of an unrealistic one, which lead to positive results and ultimately, a new career as a CrossFit coach, a job that is extremely rewarding. It was like a light went on and I just knew I was finally doing exactly what I was meant to do.
I feel like a completely different person now. CrossFit Central has done so much more for me than just change my body, it has changed my life. They have given me purpose, passion and love. I am a better person because of CrossFit Central. I am confident and feel free.
I now realize that a beautiful body is being healthy and fit and love the body I was blessed with and work hard for. Having that confidence frees up so much energy that I can now use towards being a better coach, a better girlfriend, daughter, sister, friend. On top of that, CrossFit Central has blessed me with a platform to help other people find purpose, passion and love in their lives which is the most fulfilling job I could dream of.
Lost 3lbs. 7% body fat, & over 5 inches
When I first came on as a coach I trained with other amazing coaches/athletes which was really intimidating for me. Yet, I would warm-up, load my bar, scale whatever I needed to and 3, 2, 1 go. I was forced to put aside my fears and my ego and push myself mentally to go as hard as I could even though I was getting my ass kicked. Guess what happened, I got better and better and was able to qualify for the 2009 Games Affiliate Team! If you asked me a year ago if I would even try out I would’ve laughed. CrossFit teaches you mental toughness which transfers over into everyday life and gives you an “I can” attitude. Fear and ego get in the way of so many things you might want to do in life such as change careers, start a new relationship, or run a marathon. If you can overcome those 2 things you are going to be far more successful.
I wasn’t overweight before CrossFit Central and didn’t see a dramatic weight loss. I was your average size girl that worked out a ton and thought that I ate healthy and saw no results. After CrossFit and following a Paleo/Zone diet I am only 3 lbs lighter yet my body fat is 7% lower and my physique has completely changed! I want to inspire women to forget what they learned about a number on a scale or a jean size because I am an example that those 2 things do not matter. I am leaner, stronger, more toned, faster, healthier, happier and more fit than ever before!!
