COACH BRITTANY: MY STORY

IMG_0169

I was not born a naturally gifted athlete nor was I blessed with the genetic make up of a six pack.  I have struggled with body image and acceptance for a long as I can remember.  I was always active and grew up dancing and cheerleading, but never looked the part.  I remember constant dieting and ultimately signing up for Weight Watchers when I was in 11th grade.  I then went off to college where my activity level quickly decreased and I discovered beer and fast food.  By the time I graduated I had gained 35lbs and topped out my 5ft 5in frame at a size 12. The struggle was real and not going away.

In 2011 I discovered CrossFit  It refined beauty for me and what it meant to be ‘skinny’.  Quickly I found myself more focused on the weight I added to the barbell vs the weight that appeared on the scale.  My confidence grew but I was never truly satisfied nor did I feel that my body composition was a reflection of the work I put in at the gym.  This lead me to sign up for various nutrition challenges at my gyms.  I did numerous challenges (pick a number; 30, 45, 60 or 90 days – I did them all) where I cut out food groups because they were ‘bad’ for me.

In the short term I was successful and often lost weight but once the challenge was over I found it hard to sustain.  I found myself saying ‘no’ more often than ‘yes’.  ‘No’ to social events, ‘No’ to foods I enjoyed which ultimately led to binges.  I would then ‘punish’ myself by forcing or telling myself for the next ‘x’ days I would only ‘eat clean’ and stick to chicken, steamed veggies and protein shakes.  This rarely worked and only made me want the foods I told myself I couldn’t/shouldn’t be eating.  It was a vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting that ultimately did more damage then good.

I had multiple excuses; my thyroid was underactive, my body just doesn’t process carbs, etc. etc. I even sought out advice from various nutritionists but I struggled with the concept that I needed to eat more to lose weight. So I continued with the yo-yo dieting trying to eat 1100-1200 calories a day, but at the end of the day there was no balance.

IMG_8714Then I discovered “flexible dieting”, which is the essence of the F.LE.X. Nutrition Program.  I started fueling my body with the nutrients it needed and started saying ‘yes’.  I said ‘yes’ to foods I had labeled as ‘bad’, ‘yes’ to taking care of myself and ‘yes’ to finding balance in fitness, nutrition and life!  The word ‘diet’ often has many negative connotations, but I now was on a ‘diet’ that included pop tarts, ice cream, donuts and wine!!!!  Can I eat donuts everyday for breakfast and cookies after each meal?  No.  But I have learned how to make them fit into my day/week without sabotaging my progress, workouts and mindset. I’m not perfect but I no longer punish myself for eating the foods I crave.   I now make them work becuase I FLEX my plan and so can you!!!!


I have lived and learned and failed more times then I can count. I have had to diligently work for every pound lost. I patiently navigated through progressions to get my first pull up, handstand push up and bar muscle up.  Strength and work with the barbell does come more natural then gymnastics for me but I’m still catching PRs.  I want to get YOU on that path to success and help you achieve your goals– and just maybe we’ll get you some PRs of your own along the way!
