“HOW I USED BARBELLS TO BECOME HAPPY AGAIN”
Muscle Gain: 13 Pounds
“By joining P360 my mindset has evolved significantly. When I first joined the gym, I was an avid runner and fitness bootcamper. Prior to joining, I had left an abusive relationship, and was using exercise as a coping mechanism. I was running as a way to deal with grief, and in the process overdid it. I got double stress fractures, one in each leg, and hurt my shoulder as well.
When I joined this gym, I was welcomed not only as a beginner, but also as part of a community. I quickly met some of the best people, and received amazing coaching advice from coaches who were, and still are, so willing to help me work around my injuries.
Exercise then became about being happy and healthy again, and I credit that all to the community that is P360. I found a group of people who not only thrived in the gym, but also genuinely cared about me. I stopped running away from sadness, and found peace with barbells.”
