Going to a gym was always hard for me. I’ve joined those ” big gyms” before with little success. I would go from time to time thinking this is it, I’m going to get serious this time only to find out a short couple weeks later that I’ve fallen off the wagon. Time was my excuse. Didn’t ever have time. My wife started this CrossFit thing I thought that’s cool for her, but not my thing. Then after noticing her dramatic weight change and her constant nagging telling me to come with her I did. August 6, 2015 was my first day at the gym. I’ll never forget that. It was literally the day that changed my life. I was so nervous. Nervous about being a hindrance to the rest of the class. Nervous about the other people cracking jokes or making snide remarks. It was scary for me considering I was really overweight. It was hard. Really hard, but with the constant positive reinforcement from Justin I continued on. Hell I couldn’t even do the workout completely modified. I had a hard time doing just simple walking lunges. It was demoralizing. But again Justin continued to coach me along and I felt like I didn’t want to quit on him. The first couple of weeks were really tough for me because I wanted that instant gratification of weight loss. It didn’t happen over night but I was dedicated not only at the gym but at home. One thing Justin said to me that really stuck to me is ” if you just show up I’ll make you work and you’ll loose a little weight and get better but at home is where you’ll make the biggest impact. You will have to eat right and make good choices if you really want this to work”. I listened to him and wouldn’t you know it he was right. The following weeks the weight was falling off and I was gaining the self confidence that I have never really had. It was amazing how a little hard work and self control completely transformed me. Not only physically but mentally. I went from 295lbs to 204 in less than a year and I owe it to the coaches of CFJB for pushing me out of my comfort zone and into a healthy lifestyle. I can’t wait to see what he next year brings for me.

I am stronger mentally and physically, more confident and a healthier, happier person all around since I started. Being here with my coaches and friends is the best part of my day.
