Sunday Stories: Chynna Costanzo

Sunday Stories is a series that showcases individuals who overcame some of their toughest times by focusing on fitness & wellness. We're honored to share with you Chynna's Story:

 

"My name is Chynna Costanzo and I am 21 years old. Since I was young, I have always been involved in sports. Over the years, I trained to get better, competition became tougher, and criticism became more harsh and often. Constantly being told by a coach that you aren't good enough, you'll never make it, or you're "too big" can really take a toll on a person.

 

Instead of letting it get to me, I took all of that criticism and made myself better. My weight has always been an insecurity of mine and I decided I needed to create a healthier lifestyle. I really focused on my diet and completely changed my mindset on turning my life around.

 

I have since lost over 50 pounds and I feel better than ever. My goal is to help others create a lifestyle change, and to live a healthy, positive life. I know what it feels like to be kicked down, but you have to get back up and keep going. Always believe you can do it, and you will."
