Last month, our very own Heather Goodmanson, was in a body building competition, where she placed in both the’ masters’ and ‘all-age’s categories.
After losing significant weight from our 30 Day Paleo Challenge back in September, Heather decided to up her workouts by joining Socal Strength Club.  She started lifting with SCSC in November and noticed significant gains.

By February, she started training seriously for the body building competition.  She trained six days a week, three days at CrossFit SoCal with our Strength Club.  She worked with a nutritionist and followed a very strict diet, where she ate six meals a day and everything was measured out to the ounce.

On her journey, Heather says she learned that dedication and commitment to a big goal is actually breaking her goal down into small daily habits. Daily practical application was key for her (i.e. Weightlifting daily, eating clean at every meal, going to bed early, no alcohol, drinking gallons of H2O, etc.).

“Persevering through sore muscles, food cravings, double workouts, exhaustion, was physically challenging. But the most difficult aspect of this journey was definitely mental. Breaking through the BS lies and limiting beliefs in my own head was a STRUGGLE!” said Heather.  ”I found a great comradery from my fellow athletes. The support and encouragement from so many was powerful beyond words and kept me motivated.”– Heather

The Coaches at Crossfit kept Heather’s routines basically the same, but made minor adjustments to her workouts to prep her for competition.  Coaches Rich and Tyler from Strength Club worked closest with her and Krista Jones was there to support Heather on her big night.
Congratulation Heather!
