Michelle just finished our 100 Days to Summer program. This program started with 5 private training sessions, then switched to 12 group classes per month, and included weekly nutrition check-ins with our Nutrition Coach, Audy Butler. Michelle has shed 6% body fat, dropped 3 inches of her waist, has clearer skin, and is surprised that eating nutrient dense foods makes her feel better and less hungry. Check out the rest of her 100 Day success story.
Michelle Helvey, Why do you do CrossFit?
What was your fitness, CrossFit, or yoga "life" like before you started training with True Spirit CrossFit & Yoga.
I thought that CrossFit was just an overall body workout which it is; but, I totally underestimated the intensity of the workouts and short amount of time for each workout.
What brought you to True Spirit CrossFit & Yoga in the first place?
I was gaining weight quickly with my new job and needed motivation of other people working out with me to keep me accountable. Also, I knew James from Simms and he wanted me to start CrossFit for a long time. The combination of the two made me start working out at True Spirit CrossFit.
What was your first impression? Has that changed?
I was intimidated with the prescribed workouts. At first I felt like I wasn't able to do it since I couldn't do the full prescribed plan. But, now, I'm thankful that its normal to scale and that there is that option for me.
What was the first thing fun or positive thing you experienced while training with us?
The encouragement from the rest of the class to get through The Open workouts. Also, I am happy to have visible results.
Are you working on any special CrossFit related skill now?
I would love to get a pull up and make my wrist strong enough to be able to do push-ups comfortably. Also I would like to get double-unders and hollow hold. So pretty much everything! :)
How has you life changed since training with TSCF?
I am able to run better without actually running as often as I used to. Also, I am gaining confidence as I progress. It's nice to see and feel results. I also love the community and support of the True Spirit CrossFit group. Thank you all!
What's your favorite True Spirit CrossFit memory?
How sore I was after the first Tabata workout. It hurt at the time but now I just laugh. Now I can do squats and not hurt near as bad!
