I joined MBS Crossfit for my kids. I have a fireball of a 10 year old with lots of energy and ability. She keeps me on my toes being a very busy and active child. I also have a 6 year old who was born with a disorder of the CDKL5 gene (www.cdkl5.com). She cannot walk or talk, or feed herself and is dependent on me for everything. Her care is rather extensive with feedings, changings and a full schedule of therapy or school each day. Despite the struggles, she is a sweetheart who captures the heart of all who meet her. She loves to be out and be a part of what is going on around her. She is gaining strength in standing and walking with assistance, but still requires someone to carry her up and down stairs, get her in her wheelchair or stroller and get her in the car. Over the past few years I have felt the wear and tear of balancing family life, personal life and her care. The stress of it all took its toll on me mentally and physically and left my body just feeling weak overall. Along with all the stress are the constant reminders that my kids will need me for a long time. I have had enough of being drained of strength and energy. It was time to make a change. A new, different and exciting change to get myself moving, my mind energized and my body strong again. I decided to try Crossfit and I am so glad I did. The community at MBS has been so friendly, encouraging and welcoming to my kids and me. The coaching is amazing, encouraging and helpful. In 6 months with MBS, I have made incredible gains in strength and love the brief time away from the stress to do something I love to do. Coming from a background of various sports and fitness activities, I am already stronger than ever before and have confidence I can go further. My kids need me to be strong for them. I need to be strong for them as well as for myself. So here I am at MBS and loving every minute of it!
