Ashley Wagner- Remote Coaching Client
I had my eye on OPEX for a while before I decided to look into it. My sister had been doing Opex for a few months and was seeing how much she had improved in such short time and I found that I had plateaued for quite a while do decided to give you all a call. I am now coached by Matthew Bryant
When I first started OPEX I wasn’t sure where I wanted this to take me I just wanted to be better. And finally attack my weaknesses instead of continuing to run away from them. Was that scary? Yes! Do I regret it? Hell no!!!
Since I have started OPEX I have not only become a better athlete but have become a better person. My coach is so freaking inspiring and always says the right things when I need to hear it. I no longer try to avoid working on weaknesses, I’m excited to work through them. And my mental game has gotten so much stronger, I’m a drug addict and alcoholic on recovery, I have about 3 1/2 years sober and before I found CrossFit and OPEX I was so mentally weak. Anything could just break me to pieces. But now I have this amazing inner strength that has been amazing in my life.
My current goals as of now are to get past this injury that has set me back and regain all the lost strength. To train my ass off and maybe just maybe one day I can qualify for regionals. But most importantly my goal is to inspire someone that maybe is scared to try this CrossFit thing out. I was terrified when I stepped into the box for the first time. And now it’s my home away from home.
Like I mentioned, my coach has a way of getting through to me. He makes me think of things I wouldn’t think of on my own. And he’s pushed me inside and outside the gym, mentally, physically, and spiritually. He’s got me writing in a journal daily that helps me sort my shit out and also has me reading a few different books which help a lot.
I have learned that I am a lot stronger than i tell myself. I’m the type of person that doesn’t take compliments very well and always find a way to downgrade it. But the truth is. I’m stronger today than I was yesterday. And tomorrow I’ll be stronger than I am right now. I’ve learned there are NO limits on what I can achieve. I just have to work for it and prove to myself that I deserve it.
OPEX is freaking amazing. I’m always telling people about OPEX and referring them to try it out. I’m so so glad I gave you all a call.
