Ginelle Knerr is the Transformation Tuesday success story of the week! here's Ginelle:"Growing up I was always considered “nelly with the belly”. It became such a joke around my stature that I began to accept it and eventually pushed the belly to the limits, tipping the scale at 236lbs at age of 22. I was an athlete in high school and used my positions as reason to stay so big, I figured if I am athletic and bigger it must mean I am stronger, plus I wasn’t fat I was big boned.

Opportunities come disguised as challenges in many forms and no two stories are the same. The one thing that all of our featured champions have in common is courage.

Alicia has been in a dark and dangerous place where the line between perception and reality gets blurred. To do what she's done is nothing short of superhuman. Her resiliency in overcoming a disease so dangerous that many are afraid...

This week, our story comes from the next state over...Ohio. Good friend of local CrossFit Fruition owner, Dan Dirkx, this woman has lost over 130 pounds since beginning her journey 2 years ago.

I had hit a time in my life where I didn't see a future for myself, nor did I want a future.

This scared me and I decided to change my lifestyle.” Christy started working out on the elliptical and...

As difficult as it is for us more 'mature' people to find a starting point to effect the change in established habits to get in shape, sometimes after years of neglect and abuse of our health...I can't help but think the younger people among us have a much harder job. Becoming an adult with the accompanying search for identity, while living under other's rules and not always having access to the information and motivation to change, complicated by the cruelty of peer pressure, bullying and all the other heinous behaviors that young people engage in makes you wonder how any of...
