“I have struggled with my weight all my life and, for months, I was having stomach issues. I felt horrible. I was always tired and in a state of depression which had me feeling sad, lonely and unmotivated to do anything other than going to work. Then, on May 7, 2016, I decided it was time for me to take control of my life and be alive, again. I began my journey by eating a diet low in carbs, cutting processed foods, sugars, dairy and grains out of my diet. I was basically following the Paleo diet.
In the first month, I lost 25lbs, with minimal exercise. In Early June, I saw an advertisement on Facebook about a CrossFit Challenge for a woman with Coach Jason. I didn’t know much about CrossFit, but I love a challenge and I knew I had to step up my exercise routine. I went for it! I walked in the door that first day not sure what I got myself into. It was a struggle. I hadn’t worked that hard – ever. But, from the beginning, Coach Jason supported me, motivated me and always believed in me more than I believed in myself.
I have been a member of a gym, before, but being a member of Old Glory Gym is so much more. We are family. I am continuously challenged, stretched, and encouraged to do my best to my coaches and all the other athletes. It is a support system like no other. The coaches and athletes are genuine, caring, and so much fun! At OGG you will get your butt kicked. You will feel miserable. You may even cry. You will learn to love the pain. You will look forward to the next WOD, reach your goals, and set new PRs. You will become stronger and faster. My life would not be the same without OGG. I am in the best shape of my life and stronger than I could have ever imagined. I have lost a total of 89lbs, so far. Most importantly, I have gained confidence, lifelong friendships, the ability to kick ass and, I have my life back! OGG has set the standard and you will not regret joining this box! “
