The gym has always been my happy/feel good place. The place where I trusted my body the most and pushed it to its limits. A year ago a random illnesses yanked my feet out from under me....literally! My happy place was gone, my trust in my body gone. I spent a good six months lost. Shawn told me over and over ...."go talk to Steph", but getting over myself and accepting the lack of my former abilities was a really tough pill for me to swallow.
One day he came home and said "I made you an appointment with Steph Tuesday 9:30, I'm driving". I walked into GRIT scared to death which quickly turned into pure terror when I read the three 20min AMRAP's on the board. I survived and came out of that class with the first piece of my "old" self back.
Every person that I have come in contact with at GRIT has supported me, pushed me and celebrated with me! Each class pushes me to believe in myself again and I trust my body more everyday! Steph there are no words for what you, your coaching, and your gym is giving back to me...
