It is so easy to get lost in each and every day of life. We stay so busy as people trying to keep up. But once again I was captivated by the story of someone who is not only a "She-Beast" in the gym, but in life itself...
Michelle Benedict Skidmore is a mother, wife and among other things a business owner. Recently we got together to film a short video for a Crossfit contest. So many other entries that won focused on action and animation, while we took the focus of her story and inspiration. This film showcases just a little bit of her story and how her life has gone while dealing with being a business owner on top of everyday life. Simply being a mother and wife running a house and business is enough. Now throw in being a military wife dealing with the struggles that comes with a husband often deployed adds a whole other spin.
While it is easy to be in an apathetic state and feel down about all she has to do each and everyday, she has managed to turn her life struggles into her strength. She has created a whole support program for not only herself, but other spouses dealing with the same struggles.
What you find is a Crossfit box that is as good a therapist as it is a fitness location. Both Michelle and her husband run a great program and it shows. Especially when they are together!
