Was looking for something new is a gym

I worked out regularly everyday
What healthy changes have you made since joining the LAB?
The 45 day challenge really help me to focus more on my diet and getting more rest. It help me increase my strength goals. Was able to start intermittent fasting
Tell us what you do outside of the LAB?
Not much, I do enjoy volunteering to organization and causes that I feel led.
How have you grown as an athlete since joining the LAB? Brag a little.
I’ve been able to incorporate intermittent fasting, which hopefully becomes part of my daily diet. I’ve been able to hit all my testing goals. I’ve never tested front squat before and I pushed myself on that goal. I’m now deadlifting using a new grip and I’m just as strong. Overall I think the program has made me stronger and I feel it.
What is a goal you have set for yourself in the next 6 months?
Increase my endurance and continue to work on my new normal food habits.
What is your favorite enduraLAB event or program?
I really enjoy Olympic lifting. But more than a program or event, I really like the SugarWOD app. The way other teammates can encourage and push has been very motivated. It most def helped me to hit my goals during challenge.
What advice would you have for a new person starting at enduraLAB?
Just start that the first step. The only person you are competing with is yourself.
If we had a workout in honor of you, what would it be called and what would it consist of?
Cleans, box jumps, double unders, squats.
