How to be strong in all the right ways
My 2014 New Years resolution was to make a change and get moving. My knees hurt, my shoulders hurt and I had to use my coffee table to push up to get off the floor. I was putting on five pounds a year that no longer came off during the summer. I was feeling every one of my 57 years. It took all my courage to step through the door for my first Crossfit class. Amy Kincheloe was starting up a new class focusing on movement and functionality for the baby boomers! What a perfect fit! By April I had dropped inches---from a size 14 skirt to a size 8.
I had tried dieting in the past and working out on my own but I was unable to stick with anything. With Amy and my fellow cross fitters I had a team and comradeship that I grew to love. In May of 2014 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. I kept up my cross fit. Amy would modify my workouts and encourage me just to keep moving. I feel like I breezed through my treatments....Amy's classes had not only made me physically strong but also mentally strong!
Today I am running and jumping! Something I thought I would never do again! I can eat without guilt! I feel like the discipline I've learned in Amy's class has spilled over into all aspects of my life. My only regret is not doing this 40 years ago! It's never too late to make a change! Heart Mountain Fitness is more than a gym! I appreciate the help of Glenda, my nutritional coach and Nikki, my yoga coach. I'm no longer weak but strong thanks to my team at Heart Mountain Fitness!
