Nick recently took part in CrossFit SOFLA’s Constant Pursuit Food and Fitness Challenge. Well…he didn’t just take part…he sort of won it.
He lost over 10 pounds and more than 4 inches. He also had a major lifestyle shift, which is really the whole point of the challenge in the first place. He created habits that will help him well after the challenge is said and done, habits that will keep him going strong.
We checked in with Nick to find out how this year’s challenge and how his journey through CrossFit has changed his life for the better. He wrote this…
“Ever since I can remember, I was always a fat kid (I weighed 235 pounds at 14 yrs old). I got into health and fitness around 18, started working at GNC and lost a good amount of weight and got in decent shape. Life took over and I ballooned back up to 235, went back down…up…down…
Since joining CrossFit in January, I have lost over 15 pounds and over 8% body fat, causing me to have to buy new clothes. I have gained a good amount of muscle, filling out my shoulders/chest and seeing definition in my arms and legs. I’ve gained a good amount of friends. I sleep better. I have reduced my lower back pain. I have more energy throughout the day. The change that I think I love the most is how much I look forward to getting better every day, which is a big difference from my past self.
I am stronger and more fit than I can ever remember. But I also now have a drive to be better, in every aspect of life. I have a more positive mental attitude and more confidence. I can honestly say, walking into CrossFit SOFLA is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my health.”
Here at SOFLA, we can’t say enough about Nick and his amazing progress. We are so proud of what he has done and his attitude to constantly pursue improvement. The next time you see him, give him a double high five…we think it’s pretty well deserved.
