Are Daily Meds For Chronic Pain Getting You Down?

This is the journey of Audrey Greeson,  student at Training for Warriors Athens

Life before TFW was spent dealing with chronic pain, multiple surgeries, and daily doses of narcotic medication.

Those surgeries included three on her back (including a spinal fusion of her lumbar spine),  two elbow surgeries, and most recently surgery on her achilles tendon.

Desperation caused by a lack of results from personal training at her “regular gym” as well as uninspired workouts done alone; she sought out a place to change that. Audrey found TFW Athens and says it has “made all the difference.” “I  really feel like I found a second family here at SBG.” The support and non-judgemental environment has meant a lot to her.

In the beginning, Audrey couldn’t even perform one sit-up. She felt a huge sense of victory when she was finally able to get one. She has come a long way since those days. Audrey has recently completed a personal best 286 pound deadlift and 110 pound overhead press. Although her new found strength in the weight room has been a lot of hard work it has helped her back become much stronger. Audrey is now free of pain medications.

Audrey says it best, “Being a part of SBG has really meant so much to me.  I have no doubt that I will be able to eventually accomplish every goal I set out for myself.  I’m a work in progress, but I know that with hard work and dedication I will definitely make it.  This place is such a big part of me having that belief.  I was desperate when I walked in the door, but I have found what I was looking for.”

I leave you with the top three tips that helped Audrey transform:

  1. Coming to class… I can’t stress that enough.  You can’t improve if you don’t get through that door.
  2. Perseverance… I won’t quit.  If I can’t get something now I promise you I will get it eventually.  It just takes time and practice.
  3. Listening to my coaches… I can’t say enough good things about our TFW coaches.  They are right there making sure my form is correct and giving me advice on how to improve it.

Do you struggle with some of the same things with which Audrey struggled? You CAN make that change and TRANSFORM your life also!
