I started my journey at Bridge the Gap CrossFit in July 2019. I was looking to become a better version of myself – stronger, more fit, and healthier. I’ve always enjoyed being active and I had begun competitive dragon boat racing. I was looking to get in better shape and be a stronger paddler.
Weight that I’d put on was not coming off. I was not the version of myself that I wanted to be and I realized I needed something different in order to achieve this. I was not progressing in either fitness or nutrition on my own. I was tired of being tired and was anxious about trying something new. I thought to myself, “Being stuck is scarier than progressing. Spinning my wheels – time to put it in gear.” Bridge the Gap came across my Facebook feed. I thought it was a sign and made the call to BTG. I jumped into the Elevate Nutrition program which helped me unlearn so many of the bad habits I’d learned. It provided me with the support, guidance, coaching, and accountability I didn’t know I needed. It has been a cornerstone of my success.
My workouts started at 2 classes per week. They were challenging, varied, and fun. I was experiencing such improvement in my physical ability and increased my workouts then increased to 3 times, then 4 classes per week and a set of 8 week barbell classes. I’m 100% hooked on these workouts and both the physical and mental stimuli they provide.
In less than a year, I’ve reinvented myself through the coaching and guidance of Aileen, Dennis, the coaches and members of Bridge the Gap. I’ve learned so much about myself. One of the most important is – you can’t do this alone – find your people. The people who will push you while supporting you. BTG are those people for me. It’s an experience unlike any other I’ve ever had at a gym. This has had an enormous impact in all aspects of my life: a clean bill of health from my doctor, increased energy, better sleep, increased strength and endurance.
I’m so unbelievably grateful that I pushed myself to take a chance on something new. Joining Bridge the Gap CrossFit was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s real. It’s challenging. It’s so fun. And it’s 100% worth it.
