2 and a half years ago my life changed forever. I was coping with the loss of my mother and mother in law. My life had become a series of unhealthy habits and depression. I belonged to a gym but often chose the couch instead. Uninspiring and never seeing results. When Brazen opened less than a mile from my house I went with my husband to meet Jason and Kristy and instantly fell in love with them. We joined right away. My body started changing almost immediately and my mind soon followed. When I couldn’t make a class I was upset! My husband told me I looked happier than I did in years and I told him the same. I loved seeing him smile again. We found not only a place that made our body stronger but also our hearts and minds. I was the girl that got picked last in gym class. I wasn’t an athlete growing up and now I can overhead squat pretty close to my bodyweight and deadlift more than I ever thought I’d want to!! 5 years ago I had no idea I had it in me to care enough to cry out of both frustration and happiness during a workout. Brazen has made that all possible!
