“If you learn from a loss you have not lost.”
-AUSTIN O’MALLEY, Keystones of Thought

Fourteen weeks ago Chandler Jade accepted a challenge to compete for the face of THE BIZ Raise Your Game brand, but along the way the universe threw her a curveball when she was diagnosed with a hole in her heart and required major surgery. Ever the optimist, Chandler describes what she learned from this most unexpected challenge.

I had no idea when I signed up with The BIZ that I would be facing the most difficult three months of my entire life —physically, mentally, emotionally. The last fourteen weeks have been about so much more than a fitness competition or tee shirt sales… It’s been a wonderful learning experience for all involved, but mostly I’ve learned so much about myself.

I’ve grown from a timid young girl to a strong independent woman. I went from a fitness newbie who’d never worked out a day in her life to someone who tackles Cindy and Fran on a weekly basis. But most importantly, I’ve developed great relationships with The BIZ, Mari, my coach Melissa and my fans—I never would have lasted 14 weeks of this contest without each and every one of you.

I may not have won The BIZ competition, but over the last 14 weeks I definitely “Raised My Game.” I started CrossFit workouts, embraced a paleo-friendly diet… oh, and I lost 14 lbs. I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I do know that I’m not going to stop working out just because this competition is coming to an end. Speaking of success, I am so happy for Mari. I think she is a beautiful person and an incredible athlete. She has become such an inspiration to so many people and I couldn’t be more proud to call her my friend.

I am in such a good place right now. For starters, my body has never looked better. I’ve never been this toned and I haven’t weighed less than 120 lbs since middle school. Aesthetically I am very, very pleased. Physically, I am feeling better every single day, though still recovering. It seems like everything is falling into place.

This competition has been such a great, unexpected journey and I’m happy that I’ve been able to document it for everyone to see. I hope you’ve enjoyed watching my trials and tribulations with CrossFit as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing them with you.
