The Struggles on My Fitness Journey

No one’s journey is easy.

I went from being a year-round athlete in high school to being sick in bed for months and losing my muscle mass.

I spent a gap year overcoming that obstacle and lifting weights so I’d never look like that again.

I went from working out over an hour a day, to rarely working out when I resumed school. 

Then I had my gallbladder removed suddenly.

I started running on the treadmill while feeling miserable for an entire semester, then got sick again for months.

When I say I understand your inconsistency, the struggle of showing up overtime, and the frustration, it’s because I’ve been there. 

I’ve had my dream body before and lost it. Multiple times.

But my journey is what’s made me who I am, and why I’m so passionate about coaching others to find consistency too.

I know it’s frustrating. I know it’s hard. I know you’re busy. But if I’ve learned anything it’s to keep showing up and get back up when you’re knocked down, because you only fail when you give up!

What obstacles have you had to overcome?
