I grew up in good ole Oklahoma and moved to Dallas after graduating from OSU in 1998. Go Pokes! (That’s a little Oklahoma State lingo for you.) For most of my life I have been tall and lean with a swimmer’s build. I could bake a cake, then turn around and eat the entire thing without gaining a single pound. (Boy, those were the days!) Then I hit the magical 30s and, suddenly, my awesome metabolism changed. I started gaining unwanted weight; weight that I needed to drop AND keep off. In my search for the perfect workout to assist me in shedding the pounds, I began researching cardio options that would be high intensity, but low impact on my body. Rowing is what kept appearing at the top of the lists.
Before I realized it was a unique fitness facility, I kept passing by Crowbar Cardio for about a year. Finally, I decided to give them a shot. From day one, my experience at Crowbar Cardio has been nothing but amazing. I look forward to going to class early in the morning or directly after work. The instructors are constantly challenging me and, because of their motivation, I’ve realized that I can push my body to limits I didn’t know existed. I really feel like I’ve found a place where I can achieve realistic fitness goals while literally enjoying every minute of it.
Additionally, I’m an extremely competitive person and this particular fitness studio is a great outlet. If anyone reading this bio has been in class with me, you know this last statement is so true!
