Nicole conquering the 250lb tire flip during our training session...
Joining femsport was a pretty big decision for me. I was scared. Not really of the events themselves but of letting my team down if I didn’t do well. I spoke to my parents and husband about doing the competition and, frankly, was pretty cocky about completing all of the tasks. Then day one of training with Sabrina happened. Needless to say it was very humbling to find out I was not in as good of shape as I thought! However, after a full week of whining, I committed to the competition and haven’t looked back since. Along the way I developed a somewhat irrational fear of the box we had to jump on, after a couple shin scrapes, and I have learned that even with the physical weaknesses I still carry from a car accident I was in several years ago, my body is actually capable of being strong. Something I thought I would never be able to say about myself again. It has been a great journey getting to know these wonderful women and being on such a supportive team. My outlook on fitness and health has changed drastically thanks to Sabrina and these women. Looking forward to the competition and future health goals!
