Real Life Fitness Stories: Meet Amanda

April 5, 2019

What is your name and what town are you from?

Amanda Basek, from Lake Hopatcong, N.J.

Who makes up your family?

My husband, Eric, and 3-year-old son Logan.

Tell us about your struggles:

I did five rounds of fertility treatments and put on 25 pounds from the medication and being "very careful" all of the time ... a.k.a. not really exercising. 

What was the turning point that made you change the way you care for yourself?

When all the fertility treatments didn't work, I turned to CrossFit to get my body back. And behold! Within a couple of months, I was finally pregnant after 6 years of trying!

How have you implemented your new habits with your family?

My family does a CrossFit workout or some kind of activity/exercise almost every single day together. My son does push-ups and mimics our movements. He even held his own this weekend on a three-mile hike and climbed the 291 steps of High Point's monument!
