Terri – “My Upper Body Strength Has Increased More than I Ever Thought It would.”

Coach James recently sat down with athlete Terri who has been at CrossFit Jungle Gym for 2 years and discusses how she came back from a full reconstruction of her ACL and goals she wants to accomplish next.

What originally got you to come here to CrossFit Jungle Gym?

I needed a change. I wasn’t really sure what direction I wanted to go. I needed to get healthier. I decided to take the leap from a big box gym to CrossFit.

What has happened over the last 90 days?

I’m recovering from knee surgery. I had to have a full reconstruction of my ACL.

What’s been some signs of progress from that surgery?

My upper body strength has increased so much more than I ever expected it to. I’m pretty happy with that.

What happened that you really sat there and thought oh I’m really seeing changes from upper body strength?

I guess it started with some of the movements I haven’t been able to do before. I struggled with push ups – I can do push ups pretty easily now. I could never do a pull up – now I got a pull up. People stop me and make comments now about my shoulders, arms and back. It’s a cool feeling. I used to hide them, I don’t hide them anymore.
