A little over a year ago I was the heaviest I’d ever been & none of my clothes fit.
I was walking at the track & decided I wasn’t pushing myself hard enough so I googled different gyms & came across LACO which happens to be just outside my neighborhood.
I sent a message that was promptly answered & the next morning at 5am I attended for the first time.
I look back on that day & see Shannon taking her time with new athletes just as she did with me.
I never once felt like I wasn’t good enough & have had several “firsts”...rope climb-despite my fear of heights, handstand up on the wall, toes to bar, & the devil named “snatch.”
These folks keep me motivated in & outside of the gym & I consider some of them as friends for a lifetime.
