Wendy has been a member since day 1 making her 4 plus years stronger than she was before. I was at a point in my life where my clothes were getting quite tight, and I refused to buy a bigger size. I needed something to jump-start my fitness. I was running but not as diligent as I once was. I had fallen out of a gym routine and was not taking classes as consistently as I should have been. Scrolling through Facebook, I saw this advertisement that caught my eye! Is it possible to lose weight by taking part in a 6-week challenge? I called the number and had a great conversation with Coach Kara. She explained how it all works and welcomed me in for a trial. I bit the bullet and gave the challenge a test drive. Let’s see what can happen! Well, by day 3, I was hooked! I knew this was the type of atmosphere I was yearning. I didn’t even wait for the trial to end…I jumped on board and signed up for the unlimited package! I kept with a 5-day routine, and then COVID hit. What was I going to do now??? The gym closed but offered online classes. At first, I thought I would not be able to take time off during the day to partake in the live online classes, but by the 2nd week, I blocked that time out as my lunch hour and continued my fitness. I knew if I did not take the live classes, I would find excuses not to take the recorded ones. Then came nutrition! I didn’t think I ate horrible but knew nothing about tracking macros. Coach Alyssa and I worked on my numbers, and I started tracking religiously. My boyfriend told me just a few weeks how I was shrinking! I didn’t notice as we look in the mirror and still see the same ol’ self we have always been, right? After tracking for months, I dropped more weight than I ever expected! I was so proud of myself for sticking to my nutrition head-on! The workouts at Byram CrossFit are like no other gym! I was never a CrossFit fan, but I LOVE the workouts, and I have been challenged on more than one occasion. I have gained strength, flexibility, skills I’ve never thought imaginable, and great friendships. Byram CrossFit is my home away from home!
