After having my third child, the migraines I suffered throughout my whole life completely debilitated me. I knew I had to make a change. My diet was terrible. I had no form of exercise and 3 children under age 6. I began to see a neurologist who prescribed some drugs that dulled the pain, had some serious side-effects and made me a zombie. It was then that I decided I needed a real change. I began “working out”. Globo gyms, Zumba, the barre method. I was feeling better, but not great. Not long into my “new life” I found CrossFit. I didn’t even know it was CrossFit, but I knew it kicked my butt and I liked it! I was afraid to try CrossFit, but on June 6, 2011, I started my incredible journey at Brazen Athletics. I was also encouraged to change my diet. I started to make healthy diet choices and my headaches became fewer and fewer, until one day, I couldn’t remember when my last one was. Quite a change from the 3x a week I was suffering. I weaned myself off of the medications I had been prescribed. I also lost weight and started to get strong. I began as a member but soon began working to promote Brazen on Instagram and Facebook. Soon, I became a Coach for the ladies-only program, and CrossFit Kids program. I also studied to become a Yoga instructor. I believe in the process, I’m living proof that health and life can change. I’ve watched Brazen grow from 1 to 2 gyms and I’m thrilled to be a part of its progression. I know that everything is possible. If something inspires you, go for it! We have one life to live… I love my Brazen family and I’m so thankful to be sharing this journey called life with them!
