We are proud to spotlight one of our most dedicated members, Sharon, who embodies the spirit of strength and determination that Swift River CrossFit is all about. We believe that her journey will inspire many others who are looking to transform their lives through fitness and nutrition.

A Wake-Up Call

About seven years ago, a simple household chore resulted in a strained lower back for Sharon, which served as a wake-up call for her. She realized then how out of shape she had become. Serendipitously, Sharon met a woman through work who was the embodiment of fitness. The woman identified herself as a "CrossFit girl", a term Sharon was unfamiliar with but decided to explore.

Sharon's exploration led her to us, Swift River CrossFit, and as they say, the rest is history.

Pushing Personal Boundaries

After joining our community, Sharon saw tremendous changes in her physical and mental health. As she puts it, "I am more fit and stronger than I’ve ever been. I can do things I never imagined I could do. My overall confidence has increased."

But perhaps the most impressive of Sharon's accomplishments have been her triumphs outside her comfort zone. She bravely climbed a 15’ rope and completed two Spartan sprint events, a feat she had never imagined achieving, especially over the age of 50. These victories were testament to the tremendous power of self-belief, and the push that our dedicated coaches provide.

Impact Outside the Gym

The transformations were not limited to Sharon's gym life. They extended into every aspect of her daily routine. With her increased energy and strength, she was able to engage in more activities, even simple tasks like carrying bags of dog food became easier. The nutrition coaching provided at Swift River CrossFit helped her focus on her daily habits, sleep, general self-care, and dietary patterns.

Sharon also shares how this journey has helped her connect with her adult daughter, as they have been able to work out together since her daughter was a teenager.

Joining Swift River CrossFit: A Life-Changing Decision

In Sharon's words, "The coaches and members were all so welcoming and after doing the introductory classes, I decided to join. It’s an amazing community of people doing hard things to improve themselves and going to class is the best part of my day."

Sharon's journey is proof that it's never too late to take control of your health and fitness. We are incredibly proud of Sharon's transformation and are honored to be a part of her journey. She serves as an inspiration to us and the entire Swift River CrossFit community.
