This week share Kristy’s amazing Citywide Fitness journey. The pictures pretty much speak for themselves! Check out her story below! 👇🏽👇🏽
CF: Before finding citywide, what was your struggle? What were your biggest frustrations?
KC: Before finding Citywide I had a double lung transplant in 2013 so i knew that it was important to keep my new lungs strong and healthy. I was going to a gym but i wasnt getting the results that i wanted. With all the medications I was on I had put on a little weight and so I wanted to keep that under control as well.
CF: What did you feel like before you made your transformation?
KC: When i first came to Citywide I was a little hesitant as other gyms always made me feel uncomfortable and out of place, but after my first 28 days nearly 2 years ago I’m still coming back and enjoying the challenges of TT strong, even though i dont always get my Pb. The coaches know I do get a little cranky at myself when i dont hit the higher numbers!
CF: How did our program help you, and how is life different for you now?
KC: Doing TT strong for me has been wonderful for my lungs as my results from the lung function tests reveal every three months.
For years I suffered back pain every morning. I even bought a new bed thinking that would help, but it didn’t improve until I started doing TT strong and now no more back pain!
My life is very different now compared to my old lungs of only 19 % oxygen. I now have anywhere from 98 to 100%. Obviously my new lungs make a difference but it has also been up to me to keep them as strong as possible and without Citywide and the knowledge of the coaches I would not be as healthy as I am today. So here’s to you guys, you all have changed so many lives. Keep STRONG!
Kristy your journey has been amazing and you always turn up and give it your best effort. Not everyone knows what you’ve been through and it’s mind blowing knowing what you’re achieving since having a double lung transplant!! You are an absolute legend!
