Have you ever wondered how just one opportunity can change your life forever?
Well, I am here today to tell you a story about how my life changed a couple of years ago.
I was one of those kids in high school that was a bit overweight and everything except healthy. I never had a problem being like that as I didn’t know any better. I enjoyed eating whatever I want and lying on the couch all afternoon. I always wanted to look like the guys on tv. with abs so nice girls can’t stop talking about them, but I never had the passion to work for it. Why would I want to spend my afternoon sweating in the gym, when I can be lying on the couch and eat whatever I want? Well that all changed very quickly.
I moved to a new school when I was 15 years old and that gave me the opportunity for a new start. Everyone had a passion for training hard and eating properly and I was the “chubby” new kid. I struggled to make friends and fitting in was not that easy. My closest friend asked me one afternoon to go join him for a quick session at the gym. I was not very motivated at that moment, but thought to myself, what do I have to lose? So I decided to join them.
I started slowly with only a few training sessions a day and slowly but surely cutting out the bad carbs and sweets. I started seeing results and that was the fuel that kept me moving. I started working harder and eating properly better to get better results. Today I am a young Crossfit athlete working my to the top, feeling healthy and motivated to achieve the most possible.
No matter what your circumstances, there will always be a way to change them. Grab an opportunity if it comes past and make the most out of it.
