Well, my journey with Crossfit 915 started when I needed something more than running to help loose the last of my baby weght that I had kept on for four years. At my heaviest during pregnancy, I was 179 pounds. My pre-pregnancy weight was 135. My brother Abel, encouraged me to try out a new program called FEMMEfit at Crossfit 915. With his inspiration and my own determination to get healthy, fit into my pre-baby clothes, and be a good example for my daughters I went to give FEMMEfit a try. At first it was tough, and I didn’t know if I would be able to stick with it, but I had the best encouragement from the coaches, Blanca and Edith, to keep moving forward.
When the Whole 30 Challenge came up, I thought I would give it a try and see how I did with cleaning up my diet. Up until that point, I had never tried to change my eating habits other than cutting out soda and high fructose corn syrup. I was nervous, but the camraderie of the other girls in the challenge was amazing, we kept each other going!
I love the girls in my class and absolutely love the trainers. I didn’t have self confidence or a very good body image when I started but through the great instruction and motivation, I am now the strongest I have ever been in my entire life. I love the results! The gym has become my sanctuary and my therapy, I don’t know what I would do without it. I love telling people how old I am because they never believe me and I owe it all to FEMMEfit and the guidance CrossFit 915 has given me to help me eat better. I am so proud to say that I now weight 121 pounds and am fitting into my favorite pair of pre-baby jeans. I am so happy to see my daughters mimiking the movements we do in class, because I know that I am helping to raise the next generation of healthy FEMMEfitters and instilling a love of exercise and eating right into them too. This program has done such great things for me and my family, I have made some wonderful friends and I’ve gotten to be a part of something where women build each other up and not tear each other down is so refreshing. Thank you all again- I truly love you!
