We all have challenges, MadLab helps

#transformationtuesday Kyla - a post baby transformation has been an inspiration

Kyla is probably one of the most selfless people. Being visually impaired we all think its hard for her or completely amazing and unfathomable, but as Kyla said she is just a person living her life. 


I just want to say that I don't think what I do is inspirational. I am just a normal person living my life. We all have challenges in our life, mine are just more obvious for everyone to see. I have definitely been blessed with a great family, a beautiful healthy baby and wonderful people around me.

It has been awesome to be a part of such a supportive community as MadLab while I was pregnant and now coming back to the gym with Addia. There aren't a lot of places where you can bring your baby and still get a good workout in. Everyone is so helpful with entertaining Addia for me so I can get my last set in or finish a round, or helping me set up if I need to feed her in the middle of class. I don't think I would have been able to get back into the gym if you MadLab wasn't so accommodating.

There's always other babies and kids around too, so it really brings that community feel.

Before starting at MadLab I had been doing CrossFit for 2 1/2 years. I could barely back squat 75 pounds, and hanging from a bar was painful on my shoulders because I was so weak. I had never done any sports before and had always just gone to the gym on my own. Finding MadLab was like finally finding a sport that I could participate in because the only when you're competing against is yourself. At MadLab the training is like life: we can all find modifications that allow us to take part.
