Growing up I was always active and played several sports in high school. However, I became sick with Lyme disease in 2014, but wasn’t diagnosed and given treatment for until midway through 2015. Being sick took so much out of me that I basically had to start from scratch. As I began working out again a friend of mine suggested I try CrossFit, knowing how much I would probably love it. She was right! I struggled so much when I started but the coaches and everyone at CFB kept me going. My life has become so much better since joining CrossFit Beaumont. CrossFit helps me stay active and keep my pain from Lyme Disease under control. I’ve not only gained physical and mental strength over the last nine months, but I’ve also gained a family.
