Our first Member Monday features Jackie Weir, CrossFit 317 member since early 2015. During her time training here, she has experienced several phenomenal changes. Read on to find out how Jackie went from a serious medical diagnosis to changing the trajectory of her life.
How has your training at 317 impacted your life outside of the gym?
“In 2014 I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic, above normal cholesterol, and was told I would become diabetic if I didn’t do something. I started CrossFit in April 2015 and in September all of my biometric levels were back to normal ranges.”
Has training at 317 had an impact on how you view yourself?
“Definitely. I am physically leaner, but also it has given me confidence to know if I set small goals, I’ll attain them and keep getting stronger.”
Is there a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“I started deadlifting at 105. When I hit a 205 pound 4 rep max, I was beyond stoked! My goal is a 250 pounds max now.”
If you could sum up 317 in one word, what would it be?
Pride seems like a perfect word for Jackie to select because we’re definitely proud of the hard word that she has been putting in! We can’t wait to see what her second year at 317 brings. Join us in giving Jackie a well earned “Way to go!”
