”I have been off of blood pressure medication for 4 years...
At 30 years old I was headed into knee surgery when the doctor told me my blood pressure was abnormally high and to get it looked at.
It took a few months to do that, but when I did I was put on a daily medication for high blood pressure, which scared me. I was intermittently going to CrossFit but was doing nothing for my nutrition. SoChac then did the Ascend program, which I was part of, and I learned about macros and realized I’d been undereating by 600-700 cals / day. It was scary, but I committed and began to eat more as well as eat with intention.
It’s now almost 4 years later and I haven’t been medicated since for high blood pressure thanks to CrossFit SoChac and their focus not only on training but on nutrition as well. They see the whole athlete and address the whole of wellness, not just lifting heavy and running fast. They saved my life.
