Sometimes, the universe makes things easy on us. This week’s success story is about Carolyn, who — we have noted before — brings an extraordinary heart to our gym. By virtue of her busy life as a teacher and track coach, we get to see her during a variety of sessions: she’s sometimes a 4:30 regular; sometimes she’s a 6:00am regular; and she can, most Sundays, be found working on her lifts.
The reason I say the universe makes things easy on us isn’t about Carolyn having it easy. What I mean is that I chose her to be our success story last week, and then AFTER I picked her, she went and won second place at the Festivus Games in Lancaster. So I have an awesome photo of her on the podium (thanks to the Facebook-er who posted it for us… please speak up and claim #photocred) as well as more evidence to show that her hard work in the gym and her fantastic positive attitude have earned her much accolades.
Carolyn was a Lifestyle Challenger who saw a range of benefits from dialing in her daily life:
“My clothes are much looser. I slept much better and my skin was better from drinking more water and less wine. I was able to get through a shoulder injury with the support of my team and coaches. I graduated from green band to blue doing my pull-up work. I completed the OPEN successfully without a lot of carbs which was a big eye-opener for me. The challenge also made life more positive for me. I had a PR in OHS, bench, and snatch.”
Kudos to Carolyn! We are lucky to have her.
