They say if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.
Caymanian Nicole Crance has taken that idea one step further. The science behind exercise and health has not only changed her life, she’s parlayed it into a career that’s helping others.
Two years ago, however, she never could’ve imagined that would be the case.
“I was very unhappy,” said Crance, now a fitness instructor. “Mentally, physically, spiritually. I was overweight. I wasn’t doing anything right in my life. I was trying really hard and felt like I was striking out all the time.”
Then a friend introduced her to Crossfit.
“When I came here I found something more than just a good workout programme,” she said. “I found I can celebrate who I am and actually become at peace with myself.”
Slowly but surely see realised her own transformation. That made her want to get more involved and help others. So she got certified as an instructor.
“This is a dream come true scenario for me,” Crance said. “This is more than just, ‘oh my god I love working out and I love CrossFit.’ There’s a hype about CrossFit and that’s cool, but I think this is something deeper for me.”
