Oh Ev! We love you! Your grit, passion, determination, positivity, insane thoughtfulness, caring, kindness, and that adventurous soul. I asked Ev to chat a bit about her journey with us and here is what she shared. Thank you Ev. xo
We can not wait to give you that air hug from 2 meters away. 😉
“I’m writing this today on my Ann-Knee-Versary. 1 year post breaking my tibial plateau, your main weight bearing structure in your leg. I recall going to see Jana in the CrossFit office a week post surgery, on crutches. My only intention was to go in and discuss my options to pause my membership. But; she said, why would you not keep working out? I remember looking at her and wondering how she imagined I would do that being on crutches for at least 3 months… But – that was the beginning of an incredible positive recovery process. The coaches welcomed me with open arms and would adjust the work out to what I would be able to do on crutches. Without CrossFit I would have NEVER ever been where I am today – my upper body is stronger then it ever has been, and I’m back to doing all the mountain sports I want to do. I can not even express enough how grateful I am that Jana did not let me crutch back out, with having my membership put on hold. The support, love and strength I have experienced from CrossFit Fernie is something I will never forget. This gym is a home to many in our little valley!”
Determined and focused, Ev didn’t let an injury stop her training. She simply had to adjust her mindset and be open to modifications and changes made by her coach.
