At the young age of 18 I was diagnosed with a rare non curable neurological disease called Charcot Marie Tooth; this condition damages the nerves in the arms and legs.
For the past nine years I have been told I cannot run, jump, or do anything weight bearing for the rest of my life.
With this diagnosis I have been severely depressed and gained an excess amount of weight. I always say that “I just want to be normal” and do all the activities the people around me got to do!
So far, I have tried box gyms, fitness camps, and a personal trainer. Mind you all of these programs are awesome if you have he capabilities to do them! However, I would never return because I felt I couldn’t keep up or felt singled out.
Fast forward to a few months ago…I was scrolling through Facebook and saw Christy’s post for TFC! I was so excited because it was all women! I messaged her and told her I was interested in trying out camp and also my limitations due to my condition. Her response itself had so much motivation!
So one Tuesday I was super hesitant and full of fear and decided to go to class! I can 100 percent say it was the best decision I have ever made and for once I fill like I belong somewhere and the exercises were within reach! I have never once felt discouraged.
With all this being said….you can do it! I have learned that normal is what you make it and to not let limitations choose your path for you!! I will forever be grateful for Christy and her daily motivation and super encouraging words!
