WOW, I cannot believe I’ve been with Defiant CrossFit for a full year.
Shortly after I turned 35, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, also known as MS. It’s a lifelong autoimmune condition that affects the brain and central nervous system. If poorly managed, MS can put you in a wheelchair or require assistance when walking. There is a whole list of other issues that come with MS.
When I turned 39, I decided to fight MS. That’s when I got a wild hair and joined Defiant CrossFit. I was very weak when I started. I had no endurance, no stamina, no muscle tone, nothing! My focus was not to lose weight or tone up, none of that sexy stuff. Rather, it was about moving and maintaining my independence. It has not been easy, but if it were easy it would not create change.
I just turned 40 in July (2013) and I love life. I no longer take daily injections to manage my MS. I can go all day without fatigue. I can run a 3k with no issues. I can load my ice chest, get into a deadlift position and lift the ice chest into my trunk. Now that’s what I call sexy!
If you are on the fence about joining Defiant CrossFit, let me tell you what you will find:
Trained coaches that truly care about your fitness goals
An amazing community that supports each other
WODs that will challenge you
A clean facility
An opportunity that will change your life
I hope to see you at the gym so together we can: 3 … 2 … 1 … GO!
