When Laura first came to us, she was recovering from a broken arm, and was extremely nervous about injuring herself even further. In addition to that she was struggling with low self esteem and fear of judgment.

Determined to make a change she was able to put that aside and come seek our help.

After deciding to sign up with us, she has consistently been attending classes, and is currently following our nutrition program to make sure she will reach her goals. She has come such a long way since she started, and is a true example of that you can do whatever you put your mind into.

A year and a half later, here is what she has to say: “A true life changer for me was joining this supportive and hard working group of people! I was scared to death to walk into this place. I had just been cleared by my doctor to slowly start back normal activity after breaking my arm. But other parts of me were broken and had been broken for a lot longer. I was unhappy, depressed and unhealthy. I was on antidepressants and I ate for comfort. While I’m not the perfect picture of health now, I am a far cry from where I was when I first started. I am no longer on antidepressants and I know how to fuel my body better. I am stronger, I am happy, and I have more confidence in my ability. I have something for me now. So much of my life is doing things for others which I love, but I needed something for me! The tools that Crossfit Smithfield has given me have helped me to turn my life around and gain back so much more than I could ever say.”
