I am a stay at home mom with 3 kids and I had let myself go in a way that I never I thought I would. I was sacrificing every part of me for my family, but was actually cutting all of us short of the mom and wife I could be if I was happy with myself. I was depressed and hated looking in the mirror at what I had allowed myself to do to my body. I never made time to take care of myself because I felt like there just wasn’t enough time in my day to take care of all of them AND myself. One of my dearest friends, Christy Chapman Massie asked me to come with her to Iron Fit, which was a huge deal because my husband and I are actually part owners in a CrossFit gym here in San Antonio.
My husband, thankfully was supportive of me going to a different gym because he realized my desire and need for a change. I almost died during my first 3 days of Iron Fit workouts because I was so out of shape, but after every workout I felt accomplished…. better than yesterday. I was hooked. I signed up and have never looked back since. I started off inconsistent because of the holidays, but in January we started a transformation challenge.
Erik Guerra is so passionate about what he does and about getting people in the shape they so badly want to be in. He not only gives us the tools to be successful, he makes sure we fully comprehend those tools and is always available and willing to help us along the way.
My first challenge started off great but I found myself slipping back into mom mode and was putting everyone before myself again half way through it and I didn’t finish it out. I messaged Erik one morning and told him I wanted to start the challenge over on my own and he helped me the entire way. I did Iron Fit workouts and followed my macros that Erik told me to use. I lost weight and was feeling great, feeling stronger and faster in workouts. I couldn’t believe it. I never thought I would feel good again after being in such a slump.
Now I’m almost at the end of my second Iron Fit challenge and I’m smaller than I’ve been in years. I feel great every day!! I end my weekdays with an Iron Fit workout and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I’m still mom, but I’m a better mom and my family is able to do more now together because Mom is no longer wanting to hide in the house because she feels so bad about herself and can’t fit in her clothes. I have lost over 30 lbs. and gone from a size 8 to a size 0 in less than one year by simply following the plan that Erik set out for me. Erik has literally guided me every step of the way.
Iron Fit has changed my life and I am so grateful for it. Thank you Erik for all you do and for always being available to help me with my 1200 questions throughout this journey.
