So I started in the new you program in late October because I was just tired of being fat. I wasn’t happy with who the person staring back at me in the mirror had become. I came ready to learn and very eager to get my health back (so much so Maci Lowery had to tell me to slow down because I was doing too much too fast ) I had to start completely over. New schedule, new foods, meal prepping etc. Now, I’m a single father of two VERY active boys, and work a VERY demanding 60-80 hour a week job, so the excuses are there for sure, but I made a commitment to Maci in the interview and to myself to follow this through. I lost 23 lbs during the new you 6 week program, won the nutrition challenge just 5 weeks later with the person who quickly became a very good friend, Jared Crenshaw, and to date have lost an astounding 53 total pounds and went from a 44 inch waist to a 38 and still losing weight. I have accomplished my first Rx WOD a few weeks ago, and have the confidence to keep pushing, knowing that before long I’ll be in good enough shape to compete with the likes of the incredible athlete’s that are members here. Everyone is so supportive, so kind and willing to help, and that’s a quality that Maci and Clint Lowery have in their gym that no other place has been able to offer. It’s hard to believe that less than 4 months ago I got winded just tying my shoes in the morning, and now I can play and keep up with my active children. This placed changed my life. I’m totally addicted and God willing, I’ll be a sfcf member for life.
