Since October 1st.

6. Describe your biggest milestone, achievement, or “A-ha” moment at CFT?

During a WOD that contained 25 rounds of 3 handstand pushups which of course I modified, 3 cleans and 3 burbees, I was going to quit at round 15 or so. Bridget came up along side of me and did the burbees with me after she had finished her rounds. Through her encouraging words and doing the burbees I finished. After I was done, I walked out of the box to the back parking lot and cried. I was so mad at how our if shape I was. That was my turning point!! I determined to make healthy choices to better my life for me and my family.
