the story behind paragon training methods.
“They say the best companies come from solving a problem. Our company (Paragon Training Methods) actually started with solving mine.” – Paragon Founder, LCK
As a a former competitive gymnast, marathon runner, and CrossFit Regional athlete, it’s safe to say I loved working out and pushing my body to the limits. But I was constantly feeling run down, beat up, and exhausted.
I was also disappointed that my body appearance didn’t seem to reflect all the hard work and hours I spent working out each week. Towards the end of 2017, my body hit a breaking point.
When I went to have shoulder surgery, all my years of chronic over training, under eating, and under-recovering finally caught up.
I hadn’t seen a menstrual cycle in years. Sex drive, thyroid levels, and hormone levels were non-existent. I was struggling with my weight. My digestion was a mess. I chronically felt achy, run-down, and inflamed. Attempts to workout left me feeling dizzy and lightheaded.
After a few months of spinning my wheels without success, I reached out to one of the best coaches in the industry (Bryan Boorstein) for 1:1 coaching and custom workout programming. I just KNEW there had to be a better way and was determined to find a more sustainable approach to working out and being active.
It took some trial and error. But after a few months of experimenting, things started falling into place.
I was feeling tremendously better. And sleep, sex drive, hormone levels, mood, and body comp were coming around in a positive way.
When I was back on my feet looking AND feeling better than ever, we knew we were onto something and had to share our unique approach with the world (:
In 2018, we launched Paragon Training Methods.
What began as ‘my story’ became ‘our story.’
