Athlete of the Month

Julie Collins

 

When Julie joined CrossFit Jaguar back in April she was grieving the loss of her father. Her loss had put her in a dark place where she wasn’t moving forward physically or emotionally. In her first couple of weeks with us there were days when she would walk out the doors in the middle of a workout and stand on the side of the building and cry. One of our coaches would gladly walk out and grab her by the hand, and encourage her to stay in it…just for the hour. Well this powerhouse DID stick with it!! She’ll be turning 50 soon and since she joined CrossFit Jaguar she has lost more than 30 pounds and SO MANY inches! But as her coaches, we see her moving better, we see her happier, stronger, and pushing harder than ever every day in the gym. In her workouts with us she has dealt with her grief, she inspires others, and is reaping the rewards in her physical fitness which is allowing better play time with her grand kids and shooting for a goal of running a mile in less than 10 minutes without stopping. Julie, congratulations! You are a strong, beautiful force and we’re lucky to have you with us!
