580 Barbell Club & CrossFit Unforgiven


Bricktown throw down 2021 highlights :

I did it and didn’t die
We didn’t finish last 🤪
I Pr’d my clean and jerk by 10 lbs
I swung from a bar
I lifted a 75lb sandbag 24 times
I stepped on a box with a weighted 20 lb ball 60 times AND sprinted after 700 meters and more.
6 wods in 24 hours time 😆

But mostly ....
I laughed with my friends
Was encouraged by my gym, team and family
Had my hubby and oldest son cheering me on

Got to experience this with my middle son who did his first comp in a pro division because the RX was full. I couldn’t be more proud of him for what he has put into this the last several months and thankful to those who encouraged him along the way.

Don’t want to compete ? That’s ok, but find something and some people who will push you out of your comfort zone and help you do hard things. The rewards outweigh the work! I promise!

Proud of you crew at 580 Barbell Club & CrossFit Unforgiven for having an outstanding group of competitors in a stacked competition.

In 48 hours I’ll be doing my 3rd crossfit comp.

Why do I do Crossfit and an even better question, why do I compete?
Its intense training mixed with anxiety, pushing past comfort zones and mental work to push past comfort zones.

The answer lies in what it is.

Doing something that pushes me, the love of competing, doing something hard being one of the older ones partnering with girls 10 years or more younger than me. Learning skills and watching progress. Be encouraged by and being able to encourage other women. Seeing what my 46 year old body is capable of, being part of a community of men and women who build eachother up, no jealousy, no drama, and lots of fun, and staying out of my comfort zone keeps me aware of my own insecurities, weakness's and inabilities while also giving me strength, confidence and joy.

I don't do CrossFit to be skinny. My body is not perfect but it's perfectly mine with a C-section pooch that only surgery can remove. I do it to be strong, to feel good, to set an example of good health and take care of the body God gave me. What started as a visit for physical therapy has resulted in 8 years of working and things I never thought I was capable of. Bonus, I get to work out with my boy Jarron Christian.

If you haven't stepped foot in a gym in awhile I encourage you to find your thing no matter your age. Do it for you, do it for your family, and do it for your kids. The first step is the hardest but the reward is waiting for you on the other side. Life is about becoming the best version of yOu!

Ps if you live in Ada, join me at 580 Barbell Club & CrossFit Unforgiven

Have you ever met someone that every time you ran into them it was as if you were running into a really close friend. Someone that was encouraging, funny, happy, and lifted your spirit even without a lot of conversation. Someone who takes you as you are and is good with it. This was how Cabo was to me. My only regret is that I didn’t get to know him more! If you know someone like this love them more, spend more time with them, & try to be more like them. Love you all!!
Our 2021 Buddy Challenge final task was to share our “WHY WE come to the gym“ post.
I have been pondering on this for the last 24 hours while reading all the other inspiring posts from my gym family.
About 7 years ago maybe 8, I was suffering from severe shoulder pain That I just could not seem to get better. I have always worked out, enjoyed running and cardio, wome weightlifting, played sports etc but had only admired crossfit athletes. Cheyenne did it first and had always encouraged me to, but I was scared of getting to big or bulky muscle wise 😂. When Dr. Heimer finally decided after a clear MRI that we needee a new plan he sent me to Sarah Elizabeth Heimer. I Did not know her from adam only of her. We started Pt on my shoulder and private training 3 days a week. Within 6 months I was able to hang from the bar and probably within a year or two doing that one handed hand stand hold.

My time has evolved at 580 Barbell Club & CrossFit Unforgiven Gym Page. I realized I needed an outlet to not work and just doing something for me that I enjoy. I love women, in the sense that I feel like God wants me to love and encourage women that are like me and different than me, some have walked harder paths than I have, sometimes have different beliefs than me,some just need to be encouraged in life and Its a blessing to do that. I am honored to be called on if someone needs prayers.
Its easy to stay in a comfortable bubble of people we think are just like us, live like us , look like us. Its highly rewarding to just be with people and love them where they are . These girls encourage me in return. They build me up in ways they do not realize. They push me beyond what I think I am capable of.

I have had the pure joy of working out with my son.
I have made special friendships unique in their own ways including my buddy challenge partner Nicole Smith who also encouraged me to do the competition.

I am blessed with more than one tribe of people, one through my business and one being my gym family.

So why do I keep going?
Its routine I need and love.
I want to be strong physically for myself and my family. 💙
I am very competitive and it fills that need 🤣
I want to be in places that make me better , and places where God can also use me in someone elses life. One hour a day, 5 days a week its 580 Barbell Club & CrossFit Unforgiven

Sarah, I must tell you how proud I am watching you grow all these years. Growth as a business owner, a woman of God, a wife, a leader, a mom. It has been fun to be on the sidelines to witness it all and I am in Awe of how you love your gym family so well. Well done sister.
YALL.... THIS SPEAKS VOLUMES!!! Please please please remember this!! You maybe the reason some woman keeps moving not because she wants to beat you but because she has overcome something she's been fighting for!! We are all in this gym for the same reason to be better versions of ourselves!! 💪💙👊
Like literally everything else I bring into the gym, i forgot my jump rope there and couldn’t find it yesterday. It may or may not be in a little bag. I’m pretty sure it’s green with blue handles, but that also is debatable. All I know is, Cody won it when he and Krystal Gregory won 580 barbell games, so if anyone sees it, or basically any random one because i can’t remember, please let me know.
Last minute-ish! They KILLED it! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
First minute-ish!

The 580 is so much more than just a gym…we are family through and through. Last year, we lost one of our own. Cabo was our encourager, motivator, joke maker, and so much more. Not a single soul started the gym without hearing his comical retelling of his first workout there. He was a shoulder to lean on and gave the best advice.
Today, we celebrated his life for the second time. It’s been a year, but he is still so close to our hearts.
Here’s to Cabo and his loving impact on all our lives!
We miss you and we love you ♥️💪🏼♥️


Happy 2 weeks until Competition Weekend!!!
Shirts are printed and ready to go!
