Our world-famous workouts & community
I was a former competitive gymnast, marathon runner, and CrossFit Regional athlete. I loved working out and pushing my body to the limits… but I was constantly feeling run down, beat up, and exhausted. I just wanted to look good — and despite exercising for hours on end and “doing the most” in the gym, that wasn’t the case.
If you met me in 2017, I was a total train wreck. I was bouncing back from shoulder surgery, years of overtraining and under-eating, low thyroid and low hormone levels, and working to transition off hormonal birth control.
I hadn’t seen a menstrual cycle in years. Sex drive and hormone levels were non-existent. My digestion was a mess and I chronically felt achey, run down, and inflamed. Attempts to workout left me feeling dizzy and lightheaded.
I felt absolutely terrible, was uncomfortable in my skin, and was rapidly gaining weight despite diligently tracking every macro and morsel of food that went in my mouth. Needless to say, I was desperately trying to claw my way to feeling better and getting my health in better order.
After a few months of spinning my wheels trying various other workout programs without success, I realized I was out of my league and needed help. I reached out to Bryan Boorstein on recommendation from a friend for 1:1 coaching and custom workout programming.
The goal was to create a style of workouts that was conducive to letting my body heal, supported my health and hormones, and also gave me the athletic looking physique I desired.
After a few months, I was feeling tremendously better and sleep, sex drive, hunger, mood, and body composition were coming around in a positive way… and that was when we knew we had to share it with the world..
In 2018, Bryan and I founded Paragon Training Methods, and what initially began as ‘my story’ effectively became ‘our story.’
