I had cancer in 2011 – 5 surgeries, 4 months of bi-weekly chemo, and 6 weeks of radiation over 9 months in 2012. This also put me in menopause, which is another deadly weight/body curse! I gained 30 lbs. over that experience and could not for the life of me get it off – my oncologist just kept telling me that losing weight was probably not an option now that I am in menopause, but to keep exercising.

I have always been a very active person and someone that people considered to be in “good shape” but I wasn’t aware of the type of health my lifestyle was really leading to. I went four years without stepping foot into a workout facility, focusing on my strength, or looking at my nutrition. When I married my husband, I made a promise that I didn’t have to “workout” until I felt “out of shape,” whatever that meant. One day I woke up feeling like I was missing something in my lifestyle, I didn’t look or feel the way I wanted to when it came to my health. I decided to try out CrossFit, I had heard many people say it was tough but so rewarding and I was up for the challenge. I had no idea the community of people and coaches that I was stepping into. Not only had I found something that was challenging but I had a new group of friends ready to hold me accountable and pick me up when I struggle.

...I can say that CrossFit and especially CrossFit Forest have changed my life.  I am in the best shape of my life, I quit smoking, I am down to 220 lbs, I am stronger than I have ever been, and an added bonus is that I met the love of my life at CrossFit and we just recently got married.  As the saying goes, “Those that WOD together, stay together!”

For me ... Crossfit Forest= Life.  

My journey started two years ago.  It started with making better food choices and Zumba.  (Hey!  Don't knock it.  It's so much fun!)...Not only am I am showing visible success, but the mental success that is in my heart and head is tenfold and you can't put a price on that.

Crossfit Forest has, and continues to be one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.
