Workout And Words For August 6th – Amanda’s Story

Growing up I have always LOVED being active. Whether I was playing softball, or trying too hard to Phy Ed class. Growing up in Minnesota meant I was practically born with hockey skates on my feet and my upbringing was simple: eat, sleep, hockey. I played for 14 years in total and through my adulthood – I have been attempting to find a workout that rivals – if not replicates the intensity of hockey…. which lead me to Welded. Two years ago, I was overweight and extremely out of shape. I started independently lifting weights, doing cardio and eating MUCH better. This routine served me well and I lost roughly 65 lbs in the process. What it wasn’t fulfilling was simple – a COMMUNITY. Growing up on “sports teams” I was surrounded by healthy and positive competition – things that made me push myself. Welded has completely reestablished that “team feeling” for me. And I owe that half to the wonderful trainers that work at Double Edge – as well as my peers. What I’ve learned thus far about CORRECT form and technique is more than I could have ever imagined. I am still new to Welded and am envious of all the amazing athletes that train/work at Double Edge – but the progress I have made is exhilarating! With the help of all of the trainers, I hope I can continue to ring that PR bell after each workout. Thank you – to Leo, Alvie and Jacob for being such amazing guys/trainers – keep pushing me!
