I started in CrossFit in July 2015. I wanted to get in shape by losing a lot of fat and gaining some muscle. I heard about the DEXA scan through friends at the gym and so on several occasions, I have utilized the DEXA scan. The DEXA (duel-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan provides one of the most highly accurate measurements of body composition available, registering fat and lean mass distribution throughout the entire body. The scans have been very helpful in my understanding where I needed to focus my efforts in the gym and develop a diet that complimented my body type, my exercise program and my health goals.
I went from 265 to 220 on the scale as Added muscle. Pants size 40 down to 32.
As the pictures I've shared here show, I have had significant success in transforming my body over the past 16 months. What the pictures don't show is that success has also been attained both in an improved mood and greater self-esteem. I owe much to the many great people at FITBODY, my friends at the gym and my family for my success. In December, I will be competing in my first CrossFit competition!
