Jennifer M's Testimonial
"I am now more confident, I worry less about depriving myself of certain foods, and I have gained a strong group of people who will always support me in what I'm doing. Thank you CrossFit Prevail!"
(Jennifer-Before-3rd from the left-short sleeve-white shirt)
Before I started CrossFit I was very negative about my body. I was always trying to be skinnier, work out more, eat less, and stay skinny. I didn't always follow the healthiest methods, but I was devoted/addicted to "being healthy". And then I started CrossFit. Once I got going in it I was the VERY skeptical one about gaining weight or getting bulky. I had worked so hard for so long at being skinny that I wasn't sure I was ready.
Until I saw what it was like to be "really healthy". It wasn't like a regular gym that can feel isolating or make me feel even more self-conscious. I was surrounded by a support system that taught me about being strong, sexy and HEALTHY! I started really taking care of my body, following a lifestyle not a diet where I was eating RIGHT and exercising CONSISTENTLY. I noticed my body changing but instead of standing on a scale (which I used to do daily) I didn't need to because I liked what I saw and I didn't care what it meant in regards to pounds.
For the past year, I have seen myself change but not just my body. Yes, I have more muscles and yes I’m stronger, but the biggest change has been my perspective on my self-image. I am more confident, I worry less about depriving myself of certain foods, and I have gained a strong group of people who will always support me in what I'm doing.
I spent over a decade being hard on myself and on my body and in just one year I have completely transformed my way of thinking! And I don't know if that would be the case at every "box" but I can safely say that I chose the right gym to help me become who know I want to be....so thank you CrossFit Prevail!
