Athlete of the Month-Lauren Sharpless

image-3Hello Crossfit Solafide!

I am Lauren Sharpless and I’m so excited and honored to be chosen as the Athlete of the Month!

Now just a little bit about me—I am a military brat originally from Maryland, but claim Fayetteville, NC as home.  Cody and I have been married for almost 6 years and we have two children—Boss (3 yrs) and Pyper (20 months).  I’ve been in the Army for 10 years and we’ve been here in Clarksville since July 2011.  I ran competitively in High School and at West Point, and working out has always been a normal part of my daily routine.



image-2At the beginning of 2013, I was deployed to Afghanistan.  Having had my daughter just seven months prior, I still had some weight to lose and figured I would get in to shape while deployed.  But I just kept with the same routine—running and weight lifting—and wasn’t seeing the results that I wanted.  While I was gone, my husband Cody started going to the Endurance Classes here at Solafide.  He started eating Paleo and was seeing great results.  So, I decided I would try it as well.  I researched the Paleo way of eating and Nutrition and watched just about every Crossfit video on You Tube because I’d never done any type of Crossfit before.  I worked out every morning before work and often times in the afternoon when I could.  I followed the Paleo rules the best I could with the food provided in the military dining facility.  It was amazing how quickly I began to see results.  Once I started seeing progress, I was hooked.  I saw improvements not only in appearance, but I also had more energy and my overall fitness level was improving significantly as well.



I started working out a Crossfit Solafide immediately after getting home earlier this year.  Everyone at Solafide is so amazing and welcoming and it is such a great atmosphere to work out in.  The Coaches are awesome and I can’t say enough good things about them.  My husband and my kids are my biggest supporters and they motivate me every day to get better and better.  I am so proud and fortunate to be part of the Crossfit Solafide family and look forward to getting to know everyone!
