MARY DECHENE

“I found that if I really want to be successful and achieve my goals, then I would have to incorporate personal programming into my weekly routine – this was not optional. However, I ended up loving it so much that training did not feel like an obligation, but it was something I genuinely looked forward to everyday.”

Mary is a 52-year-old wife, mother of three and grandmother of four. She worked as a dental hygienist for 19 years. Her and her husband started going to group classes at Crossfit 77 in 2016. Here is a little about Mary’s story:

“My health journey started after having three kids. I have struggled with my weight since high school, and I was once told my thighs were larger than most of the football players. It was then that I decided I was never going to let myself be large. I started running in 1992 and have progressed through the years with many different gyms and workouts. Nothing stuck until a few years ago when my husband and I started Insanity, and we read the book ‘Eat This Not That.’ I realized what I was doing was better than most people, but not complete; we needed a life change. Once we changed what we were cooking daily, everything started falling into place. I have changed my diet to achieve my fitness goals of pull-ups, toes-to-bar and handstand push-ups. With the help of personal programming, consistency at the gym and the incredible, knowledgeable coaching team at CrossFit 77, I have achieved my goals and set new ones. The coaches at CrossFit 77 create an environment you want to join. If you’re looking to make a change in your health and wellness, set realistic goals, don’t get discouraged, take one day at a time and you will see the rewards. Pain is weakness leaving the body.”
