“I have become more positive and more confident. I wake up every morning not dreading how bad my day will be but instead I think ‘Bring it.'”

 


Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 11.11.46 PMBefore I moved to LA I used to be 350 lbs. smoked a pack of cigarettes a day and drank a great deal as well. I was slowly killing myself and the sad part about it was that I knew I was killing myself. I needed to change but did not put any effort into doing so. Until my best friends convinced me to get off my ass and make the move from GA to CA. Since the move I gave up smoking, drinking heavily, and I started to exercise because I knew that if I wanted to start a new life, I need to be a better me.  This is my Paradiso CrossFit success story:

Fast forward 2 years. I have tried many exercises during that time and only managed to lose 50 lbs and no where close to where I wanted to be. I have been actively doing crossfit for 6 months and I have lost 52 lbs and dropped 2 waist sizes. I can honestly say, Paradiso Crossfit has changed my life.

So how has my Crossfit success story changed my life? I can write a book going into the details but I will just list only a couple.

  • I was able to join a community where people do not judge on how poorly I do, but rather help and inspire me to get better. In return for that help and inspiration I give everything I have to the workout. So everyday I get better physically.
  • As I started to get better physically, I also started to feel better emotionally and mentally. I have become more positive and more confident. I wake up every morning not dreading how bad my day will be but instead I think “Bring it.”
