On today’s episode, we’re talking with author and CrossFit Affiliate Owner, Athena Perez. Athena first became known to the CrossFit community when CrossFit HQ did a mini documentary on her weight loss journey titled, “Famished, Force-Fed, 450 Pounds—and Finally Fit.” When many people think of CrossFit, they often think of it as a modality to achieve elite fitness; for Athena, it’s what’s helping her save her life. She is now on a mission to help others who are in similar situations fight for their lives.
When people think of significant weight loss, they think it’s about not eating as much and working out more. Athena will tell you it’s deeper than that. We dive in to her personal story and how it was through God renewing her heart and mind to heal from past trauma that weightloss was possible.
