Athlete of the month!
Wow! This is an amazing honor and to everyone I say thank you.
I joined transformation academy in March of 2019 on a whim. I had actually missed the 1st 2 classes but better late than never right? I needed something in my life to get me moving, to get my mind healthier. I had 2 young kids at the time and Jacob was 7 and Corinne was 5 and I found myself questioning if I could actually jump from tall playground equipment and still climb a fence.
Because of swift today I am confident that I can keep up with 2 energetic kids who like to challenge me.
Swift is not only about my physical well-being but also has about my mental health and stability. This program has pushed me to ...
Athlete of the month!
Back in May of 2021 when I joined this diverse fitness community of like-minded “Goal
Getters” I had just attempted my first SWIFT class time cap that included Wallballs, V-Ups,
and Russian kettlebell swings. After the longest 14 minutes of my life, I gasped for air and asked myself the
important question, “What the hell am I doing, and can I cut this?” Today, and 300+
SWIFT classes later, I’m incredibly fueled and humbled to be the July 2022 AOM at
Thank you TNT Coaches for this awesome nomination and for pushing me “in a healthy
way” to reach new limits. Thank you TNT community for being accepting to the TNT
“Newcomers” that work ...
When I walked in to TNT a few years ago and met Oscar, I was looking for a change but I didn’t know how to do it.
My workouts were just lifting weights, with no programming, direction, or motivation.
I started personal training with Oscar and saw results in my mobility, flexibility, balance. We worked on strength, lifting mechanics and endurance. This eventually led me to be comfortable enough to try Olympic lifting classes. (My age plus 3 back surgeries had me thinking Olympic lifting wasn’t for me).
And I competed in my first weightlifting meet last month (and hit all 6 of my lifts).
Because my overall health had improved,
I have even been motivated to participate in Swift classes...
TNT helped me in building my confidence, tackle my work pressure, and to stay fit. I always have a great time and TNT always find a way to motivate me to come to all the classes.
Currently, I am personal training, taking Swift classes, and doing nutrition counseling. I even did the Open this year which is something I never though I could do. Honestly, I have often thought my time had passed, that I should have started all of this in my 20s not 30 year...
This came as a big surprise when Courtney informed me that was selected as athlete of the month, I am honored. I would like to thank all the coaches for the nomination, and I would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the coaches at TNT for all the hard work they put in every day. It is because of their dedication that all of us continue to improve on this fitness journey.
I first started coming to TNT in the spring of 2019. I had been weight training consistently for over a year at the time and I needed a new challenge. I was regularly competing in shooting sports, and found The Tactical Games on YouTube, a sport that combines marksmanship and functional fitness challenges. Gam...
I joined TNT several years ago to train for a specific event. The first few years I would still sprinkle in other places to workout but was always pulled to TNT for several reasons…the variety of workouts, the way it challenged me differently each day, it really motivated me to push myself to do things that I didn’t think I could do, the positive energy and knowledge of each of the coaches over the years and the amazing friendliness of the people I work out with each day. I’ve done CrossFit and SWIFT over the years and I love both equally!
I was completely blown away to see my name as Athlete of the Month for January! I certainly do not yet consider myself an athlete so I am so humbled and honored to know that the coaches see something in me! I know I have a journey ahead of me to attain my fitness goals but I can honestly say that I have enjoyed so much getting to know the coaches and members at TNT and I look forward to continuing my journey with such amazing people!
“I’d like to start by saying ‘thank you’ to the coaches for nominating me for ‘Athlete of the Month.” I’m honored and humbled.
I’m not much for social media (or even on it for that matter) other than Snap Chat. I’m also not much on speeches/statements either, but I figured I should say a little bit about myself and share my journey since I was nominated.
In January, I weighed in at 265 pounds. My XL clothes were tight, and I was about to move into 2XL clothes. I got winded going up a flight of stairs. I was overweight, ate horrible, and was depressed. This is when I decided I needed to start a new chapter in my life.
I drove by TNT Fitnes...
Wow! I am so flattered to have been chosen as November's Athlete of the Month! I never expected this. I first started at TNT just when it was opening back up from quarantine and it has been one of my best decisions. CrossFit had been something I wanted to try for a while but inexperience and nerves had been holding me back. I finally thought it was time to try something new compared to my solo Club Fitness workouts which were getting rather boring. Now, a year and a half later, I couldn't be happier. I am the strongest I've ever been and feel like I'm in the best shape of my life. TNT has made me healthier; I make better nutrition choices and consider my overall health rather than just tr...
