James’ Life Changing Journey

James joined CrossFit Freesol in September (2022).  Sadly, James had found himself hitting rock bottom, both mentally and physically. Discover how he’s turned his life around for the better, with the support of friends and family, and his discovery of CrossFit Freesol. 

In James’ own words: –

“Soooo 2022…….I was at my worst and was a lost soul… be honest I didn’t want to be here.

I was fighting my demons and slumped in the gutter, I really had to bite the bullet and help myself because that’s truly the only person who can.

I’ve come such a long way in the last 4 months mentally/physically and never thought I’d be where I am now!

I couldn’t have done it from the help from friends and family. Even if it was a txt to tell me things will get better or a stupid meme❤️

But one place that has helped me so much and I can’t thank enough for is @crossfitfreesol 🙌🏻

They have been so understanding every step of the way but also pushed me which is what I needed to get myself back on my feet!

My first class I was honestly shitting my pants and had no idea what I was doing but Everyone was so welcoming and made me instantly feel part of the Tribe!

Whatever class I join its always upbeat and positive vibes from the first step in the box. Everyone there has helped me in some sort of way even if it’s just been a Hello!

So what I’m saying is please please please don’t give up! Help yourself and reach out!!!

Love to you all ✌🏻
