We have several members who have children and it just goes to show what an impact they are having on their kids lives. They are teaching them it’s cool and good to workout and lead a healthy lifestyle. It builds self-esteem and helps strengthen relationships in a healthy way. We are so proud of our parents at CFLM and the example they are sending to their kids! Here are a couple examples…
“Just wanted to share this from my daughter’s page…. we are loving this!”
“Me wearing the same shirt a few months later??? I guess lifting heavy things and not being on a freshman meal plan does wonders.”
Here is another example from one of our Youth Weightlifters….
“Around 3 years ago I was 155 lbs of pure fat, I didn’t work out, didn’t eat good, I absolutely hated everything about myself. Now I stand here today, a solid 128lbs of pure persistence. This was a journey from me as a freshman to me as a senior. Blood, sweat, tears, and lots of fails just to be here. It wouldn’t be the same if there wasn’t a journey, it has taught me to be thankful for every moment that I hit a new lift, every moment I kept running when I thought it was impossible, every time I fail. A wise man will fall 7 times but get up 8!! It’s all about how you rebound! The failures are what make you a success, be thankful for them because every time you succeed it’s going to feel so good! Don’t forget to do everything to excellence unto the Lord. If it wasn’t for him I’d be weak but the Lord is my strength! All because of Him who lives inside of me I’m able to get up every day and go hit a new lift or continue training. I also love thanking my crossfit coaches /react-text @crossfitlm react-text: 55 for helping coach me and teach me on what it is to be an athlete. Always remember to breathe and focus before accomplishing your goal. Get your mind right, tell yourself you can! And if you fail, then get right back up, because you CAN!”
