"My story begins 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. I was just turning 53 and was suffering from lack of energy, hair loss, itchy skin, brain fog, etc.
These were all symptoms of this disease. Coming from a very active background: completing 4 century rides, 1 marathon, 4 1/2 marathons and more, I sunk emotionally because my mind was ready to beat the bag, take the run, ride the bike...but my body fell behind.
It's been a roller coaster ride since then, getting meds balanced to stay motivated and in the game.
Yesterday, after only being a member at 9Round for 4 weeks, I walked and read the signs all around the gym I AM STRONG. 💪🏻 It hit me like a freight train.
The messaging and timing is strong in this campaign... I read the signs and kept reaffirming it through my workout. I felt so determined not to sink and give up after each round. I finished strong and was happy to ring that bell! 🔔
I realized I AM STRONG no matter what. My body may not be the same it was 5 years ago, but I am strong because: - I am not easily affected by disease or hardship
- I am not easily disturbed, upset, or affected
- I show determination, self-control, and good judgment
Thank you 9Round Boynton Beach owners and trainers. You are greatly appreciated!" -Maggie S, 9Rounder
