Eddie’s Success Story
12 Years Ago…
My success story actually starts back about 12 years ago when I had a bad motorcycle accident. After having several surgeries on my right leg, due to Compartment Syndrome, I continued to struggle with daily activities with my leg. Over the years, my back began hurting all of the time, I wasn’t able to sleep throughout the night, and I was tired during the day. In addition to my day job, and continued side work, I’m also a volunteer diver at the Newport Aquarium. Even the most routine of tasks at the aquarium were difficult because of the shape I was in. Needless to say, I finally hit a plateau in my life last April, and I was ready to make a change.
During our annual Spring Break vacation, with family and friends, Jeff Seger, had mentioned CrossFit to me, and how much he had liked it. I was a little hesitant at first, but I called Coach Brian when I got back, and joined the beginner’s training classes. I immediately became addicted.
Now 9 months later, I’ve lost over 25-lbs, from 230 to 205, and dropped from a size 36” waist to a 34”. I have regained strength in my right leg, and the rate of my air consumption at the aquarium has been greatly impacted. I sleep more soundly, and have more energy throughout the day. Most importantly, I’m stronger and in the best shape of my life, and I am continuing to set more goals.
My experience at Fern Creek CrossFit
The coaches at FCCF are the best around, and help you to reach your goals, and are flexible when needing to scale back the workout, if needed. The other members are always encouraging, and treat you like family. After every workout I complete, I feel a great accomplishment, and one of pride.
If I can do this, anybody can. All you have to do is show up by walking through the door, and make that commitment.
