Overcoming Hashimoto’s Disease

Home / Uncategorized / Overcoming Hashimoto’s Disease

My name is David McNally. I am 26 years old and I have been coming to TFW for almost 14 months. I started with the 8-week transformation class and I was hooked because TFW made me feel stronger mentally and physically. I had played sports my whole life, but after graduating things changed. I truly missed being part of something bigger than myself.


I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease and I needed to have my thyroid removed because of it. So, I struggled to lose weight. However, with exercising four days a week and incorporating the Whole 30 diet it has helped me achieve my goal of losing fifty pounds. The TFW program has changed my life in so many ways; it has made me a better friend, son, employee, and most importantly a better human being.


To receive this honor of “Warrior of the Month” is a humbling experience. The biggest thing that makes TFW different than any other gyms is the constant support, commitment and reassurance that the TFW coaches and fellow gym members provide.


The first person I have to thank is my mother because she got me started on this journey. I would also like to thank Coach Phil and the rest of the TFW familia. The atmosphere Coach Phil has cultivated at his Dojo is something special and something you have to witness it for yourself.


Hopefully by sharing my story I can help motivate others out there. So, to anyone struggling with the same challenges I have faced, please know there is a light at the end of the tunnel if you keep pushing
