The Crisis: Like many college freshmen, Kacie Phillips found her life turned upside down. Nothing was the same, especially her body, and she quickly found herself "in a rut." Even though she was doing "hours upon hours on the treadmill or elliptical," she still wasn't seeing results.
The Change: One day, fed up with the monotony, Kacie decided to venture out of her safe "Cardio Land" to the weight room. "I was always too intimidated by the weight rooms. Girls were never in there; only guys! But then I said 'what the heck' and I ventured in. I have never never looked back since."
The Cure: "Lifting has single-handedly changed my life. I feel strong, empowered, and energized on a day-to-day basis." Not only did she conquer her fear of lifting, but she finally started seeing results. "Lifting has built muscles that I didn't even know I was capable of! Now I absolutely love working out, and this has truly become a passion."
Kacie's Tip: "When you are stuck in a rut, change it up. Try something new! I am getting ready to start CrossFit throughout the holiday season. I will continue to challenge myself and push myself."
