Before finding us, what was your struggle? What were your biggest frustrations?
Diet and consistent exercises. As a type 1 diabetic since the age of 13, it has always been imperative to control my diet to sustain normal blood sugar levels with consistent exercise.
How did your struggle and frustrations affect your life?
I didn’t feel good. I fought with eating a healthy diet daily and unstable blood sugar levels. But the real problem was , I didn’t know how to eat to fuel my body.
How did our program help you?
CrossFit has helped me maintain a consistent healthy lifestyle as a type 1 diabetic especially post 2 babies within 3 years of each other. Guilford Athletic Center changed my life not only with healthy eating habits and consistent exercise but mentally too!
How is life different for you now?
I feel healthy, strong. Bouncing back from 2 babies within a few years of each other was accomplished through the programming and commitment to Guilford Athletic Center. I am 💯 sure without Guilford Athletic Center and the community, I wouldn’t be where I am today with my physical health as I creep up to my late 30s. I am very blessed to be part of such a supportive community!
