“This program has made me slow down, listen to my body, and appreciate it for what it is now (not what it USED to be) and how it is developing…So empowering to love ourselves in all stages of life!”
I was never the super athletic type and never overweight, so I worked out minimally in high school and college. Once in PT school I needed a stress outlet, and my bestie and I came up with a routine of going to the gym before 8am class every day. Saturdays we would do classes…that is where I realized I LOVED having someone else program my workouts! J I moved here from TX in 2011 and joined a CrossFit gym with my husband. We LOVED the CrossFit community and were members until our gym closed (5 years). I had my little boy May 2016 and needed something that fit into our new life better and working out at home does. FGF@Home came right in time with the 1st session starting September 2016 right when I returned to work full-time! I have been the most consistent I have ever been in the last year, and still LOVE everything about this program…even the running! 😉
Being active in our CrossFit gym for 5 years, I came to crave a hard but fun, challenging but achievable, fast but super effective workout style. Farmgirlfit offers this at their physical locations, so I was super hopeful the FGF@Home program would offer something similar…and boy was I right!
When I started FGF@Home I was 13 weeks post Cesarean Section with a weak core and pelvic floor, but with a mindset that I could still perform at my previous CrossFit level self. Heck, I worked out up until 39 weeks pregnant including performing Double Unders…so why couldn’t I just pick up where I left off?!? 😂😂😂 My body said NO so many times, and it was really humbling during that 1st FGF@Home session. Over the past 3, now on the 4th session, this program has made me slow down, listen to my body, and appreciate it for what it is now (not what it USED to be) and how it is developing. I have appreciated the social media support, and the girl/body positive message behind everything FGF does. So empowering to love ourselves in all stages of life!
Running multiple 5k’s…I may have ran 3-4 5k’s in my ENTIRE life and now I try to fit one in once a month. I’m still working on that dang 10k…maybe a #FGFParticipate challenge will push me there. 😏 😉
That dang 10k!
My family. Two main ones:
I really enjoy all the outside the box stuff…card or dice Grinds, as well as the really SWEATY ones, when you know that when you’re done you’ll feel so accomplished…they are very cathartic! Least favorite would be running, but I know I NEED it.
The flexibility of shuffling things around, being able to be home since I have to workout after 8pm each night, and the girl/body positive outlook…oh and the pushing to participate more and do MORE outside stuff in the beautiful part of the country we live in!
Working harder on the nutrition aspect…more veggies and less dessert!
I have definitely become more ACTIVE and WANTING to get out there and DO MORE: MORE hikes, MORE experiences, MORE living in the moment!
My husband (Trey) and I have been married for 10 years, we have a Siberian Husky named Eros and a 13 month old little boy named Greyson. My husband and I met in college in TX and moved to Spokane after I graduated from PT school. I work hard, and LOVE my job as a PT and clinic manager at Apex Physical Therapy in Spokane. This year I have been learning how to manage all hats I wear: wife, momma, and a PT, as well as to stay active and healthy. Some days I fail and other days I thrive but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Anywhere with my family!
Coffee, and any kind of homemade dessert.
Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos…we are a BIG football-watching family! 🤠🏈🐴
As Nike would say "Just Do It"…you will thank yourself later!
