gissel3Gissel2gissel1My "fitness" journey began roughly a year ago. I weighed in at 5'6" and 190 pounds. I was 20 years old and I had hit my rock bottom both mentally and physically. I spent all of my time feeling sorry for myself, and making excuses. I had completely lost myself, and needed to get my life back. When I joined Crossfit Bulletproof I found something I didn't even know I needed. I found a supportive community and a group of life-long friends. Bulletproof is a community that not only encourages and supports me, but also pushes me to be stronger. Through bulletproof I have learned to never doubt my strength and I have gained the mental and physical strength to love myself, which is something I have never been able to do for all of my life. To this day, I have lost 50 pounds and an upwards of 35 inches all over, but believe it or not that hardly matters to me. Don't get me wrong, it feels great to fit into clothes I never thought I'd be able to wear, but what matters is that I now know my strength and I love myself. That is something that no one can ever take from me. I now possess the confidence to say I CAN, and I owe it all to my family at Bulletproof.
