“Oxygen Challenge 8 came at the absolute perfect time in my fitness journey. I was nine months pregnant when I saw the post about Oxygen Challenge 8. I was struggling to keep my diet and exercise consistent. I always knew that with my first pregnancy, changes would happen to my body that I’ve never experienced before. However, as a former trainer and bodybuilder I knew that once my body felt normal again, I would be able to return to my regular routine of lifting weights and taking dance classes. I had already started again in the past. Nothing could have prepared me for the feeling of disconnection from my own strength and will.
Although I was becoming more discouraged because everything felt foreign in the gym, it was where I felt physically and mentally at my best.
