I began working out when my life fell to pieces. I needed an escape from the stress and terror my world had become, and physically wearing myself out left me with no energy to let my metal state get to me. As I gained physical strength, I gained mental strength and the courage to face each new day knowing that I am the author of my own well-being. I've been off and on since, but with the support this site provides I've been going strong for just over two years now!

Why I Love it
I love the feeling of being physically exhausted. Pushing myself to do things I never thought I could do. I am highly self-competitive so beating old PRs is a huge rush. I love that feeling and can never get enough.
