52 weeks later, and with tremendous discipline, Shannon went from being offered a handicap sticker to rediscovering her sense of adventure and training for a half marathon.

About a year ago, Alan Stengel peaked at 320lbs. Lethargy, difficulty completing simple tasks, and random pains and anxiety constantly drained his energy.
Feeling trapped in his own body, Alan finally decided to make a change. Reuniting with some friends at an engagement party, he learned about CrossFit from a friend. With a little convincing, Alan did his first partner WOD and was immediately hooked.
In hardly 12 months, Alan has shed over 100 pounds and gotten into the best shape of his life. He is embracing his newfound health by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness and money to fund college tuition for students in Kenya.
