Rylee shares her why...

February 18, 2020

 

My name is Rylee Phillips, and I'm active duty Air Force as a mental health technician. If you want honesty, you've come to the right person, I'm pretty transparent!  For what I do for a living, I really want to share my experiences and eliminate the stigmas for mental health. 

Prior to joining CrossFit, my husband and I were battling with infertility. I was in a dark place, especially when I found out I had PCOS, polycystic ovarian syndrome.  My #1 enemy was my body, or at least that's what I felt.  I began this path of destruction where I would eat whatever, do nothing but the bare minimum. I gained weight, but I mainly gained depression. I separated myself from body by telling it that it couldn't do anything right. I would work out by myself, but it wasn't helping my mindset.

 

Then I joined CrossFit.  

 

I gained myself back.  I have come to terms with what I have, but proud of my body now.  The realization that I can do so much more than I thought I was capable of astounded me. I've gained a second family that didn't even realize they pulled me out of a dark place.

 

I hope that with my testimony, if you can relate to it, that you try it. There's nothing to lose, but way more to gain!! 

Lift heavy friends!!!
