Whether you’re a gym owner or not, we’re sure you’ll resonate with Joe’s story of how other demands in life took priority over his own well-being.

Vince is the man!…firefighter, coach, and really just an all around great guy. We drove 6 hours to his CrossFit L1 a few weeks ago and we chatted about everything from past relationships to our goals in life…somewhere in those deep conversations we talked nutrition.
Candice got started with Own Your Eating back in May 2018. Like a lot of us, the only time in her life she was able to maintain a healthy weight was when she was practically starving herself. Well this time Candice’s weight loss is completely different! Candice is satisfied with the amount of food she’s eating and she’s not having to deprive herself of the food she enjoys! We love to see people reaching their weight loss goals but we are always so thrilled when we help people change their relationship and mindset in respect to food. Congrats to Candice for taking the plunge & trusting us to help her overcome her difficulties with weight loss.
Gaining weight is harder than most people think! Jason Gordon has made an amazing transformation in the last 4 years and just like many women out there, he has a very real fear of gaining weight again. Contrary to popular belief, women aren’t the only ones who struggle with the number on the scale. Even when you want to make strength gains, eating more food and seeing that number on the scale increase is a real mental challenge.
We met Noah at Goose Island CrossFit in Chicago when we were on our seminar tour last year and en route to the Games! Noah is one of the MOST hospitable people we’ve ever met – which means a lot given our traveling history! It still makes my heart smile when I think about the incredibly warm welcome we were given. Aside from being a stand-up person in his community, Noah is the owner and head coach at Goose Island CrossFit.

Despite having a solid workout routine and being in the military, Andé struggled to make any progress towards her weight loss and body composition goals. Like many people out there, ourselves included, she discovered that exercise alone will not transform your body. The way your body looks, feels and performs is directly correlated to your nutrition. Andé’s nutrition wasn’t “bad” per se – although she was definitely guilty of not eating enough – but it wasn’t balanced either. As soon as that changed, so did her body.
