I struggled with pretty much everything. Nutrition was in the toilet, I did not eat well, which has totally changed since I started here. I’ve become more focused on eating healthier, cleaner. My biggest struggle was actually getting off the couch to actually do anything. We had all kinds of stuff in our basement I could use to workout… I never used it because I never had somebody telling me to do this, do that. So this kind of environment is what I needed.
Both of us have been CrossFitting for about 2-3 years now and we were kind of at a standstill with our performance so we looked for a change. We looked around in the area and heard nothing but good reviews about this place. We like the coaches and the positive attitude. You get a variety of coaches, they all have different backgrounds, different knowledge and they all just want to see everyone get better. And they have such positive attitudes, always smiling, they care about you and you feel welcomed every time you come.
Before Heroes Journey, I was working out to burn calories. I had no concept of fitness. When I came across Heroes Journey, it totally blew my mind. My life did a 180 when it came to fitness. I never thought of myself as someone who was physically fit, I have zero fitness background. But Heroes Journey taught me how to move, taught me the right exercises and movements to do to see results. I have fitness goals now I never would have imagined.
I had recently gone through knee surgery, and I found it very difficult to walk and I had met Dr. Chris at a health fair. And he convinced me to join Heroes Journey. My goal was basically just to get my knees back into shape so I could walk for my friend, who now with ALS, cannot walk. Now, because of Heroes Journey, I am running half marathons. – Deb Van Fleet
