Sunday Success Story: Olivia from CrossFit Central

My favorite piece on most CrossFit affiliate sites is the Success Stories section. The diverse stories of success give me goose bumps and force a smile on my face. The power of human drive once a mind is set to accomplish whatever they’ve set it to is astonishing.

Sprinting around the web scouring for some goose bumps, I came across CrossFit Central.

A story struck me on the CrossFit Central site of a woman named Olivia. I’ve never met Olivia, but her story makes me want to.

CrossFit Success

Before discovering CrossFit she had just had a baby and had to loosen the grip on her career. Despite all that she encountered she stood tall and pushed forward to CrossFit Central, and her life story did an abrupt U-turn.Olivia has shed 30 lbs, dropped 13% body fat, 4 inches, and 5 dress sizes

Inside three months of forging her body at CrossFit Central she had almost returned to her normal weight.

Even more impressive than the disappearing body fat is her attitude.

“I am so much stronger emotionally, mentally, and physically! I was terrified to do CrossFit and didn’t think I could handle it.”

Olivia held her head high, gritted her teeth, and facing her own fears, attacked CrossFit. The results speak for themselves.

Hear it from Olivia

Olivia, if I ever make it to CrossFit Central, I hope we can WOD together.

A special thanks to CrossFit Central and Jeremy Thiel who made this post possible
