“That’s the thing, you know everyone has their own battles inside their head…” -Meg V Krankster of The Month

We meet in the office…

Her face wears a glowing shade of scarlet as her heart begins to settle into it’s normal rhythm, she says,

“I don’t think you know this but I have a heart condition,

When I was two they did surgery – they put a catheter in there to replace the valve but at the time they didn’t have ones that fit a child so they had to place the adult size. There was a tear, there was blood. And we never really got it fixed. The doctors said I would need another surgery but honestly since coming here my hearts seems to be working just fine.

She shifts in her seat,

“I guess that’s why my mom never really let me play sports growing up, I was overweight and it was an image I guess I never seemed to shake.”

Meg sits before me cross legged with a pony tail, her smile is always peaking through her words. 

“You know, it’s like no matter how what size I am, I’ll still find a reason to criticize myself, but this place has really changed my life…I don’t try on the 15 pairs of clothes before I leave the house in the morning anymore. I pick one and I’m happy with the way that it looks.”

She’s 4’11 wears a size 0 as she says,

“That’s the thing, you know everyone has their own battles inside their head…”

She wears confidence on her face every time she is in class and as she sits before me unraveling herself I think, 

you never know what another person is going through.

We don’t always wear our minds wardrobe out in public – despite the size, a battle is still a battle.

It’s like I’m staring in a mirror, Meg is about my age.

She begins,

“I think the problem is that we see these instagram fitness models all over the place but we never ACTUALLY see them.

They show us what they want to see.”

I am thinking about perception and how true strength comes with honesty, her words hold genuine sincerity,

“….But this place, this place is something different. This place is the reason I am happy throughout everyday. It’s the feeling I get while I’m moving. You know its just the energy, the positive people. I don’t always know what I’m doing and sometimes I get lost in the sets but someone is always there to help you along.”

A small laugh escapes from her never leaving smile,

“but everyones smile keeps me pushing harder. “

“Positivity. That’s what makes this place different, the genuine happiness that fills this place and each class.”

Meg gets up to leave but before reaching for the door she gives me a hug,

“Thank you.”

Meg couldn’t fumbles on her words with humility when I asked why she was Krankster of the month, she can’t seem to describe in detail as to why but I can.

She thanks the coaches for helping her become better and for their positivity that helps linger throughout her daily life, but it is people like her, the ones that show honesty and strength that make the coaches here at Krank become better, love what they do and show up.

Thank You Meg, for being you, you deserve Krankster of the Month more than you know.

Coach B.
