“I knew I didn’t just want to put out some cheap, PVC mat. I wanted it to be super high quality. And our mats can stand against the top mats out there. We’re a reasonable price point because we wanted fitness to be available to everybody.” — Becky Peavy [0:11:20.3]
“I had to lose me to find me. I really had to lose that person that I was.” — Becky Peavy [0:13:22]
“Prior to my injury, I was chasing perfection. I had body dysmorphia, I never was good enough, I never looked good enough. It was always the next diet, the next new thing, and I lost all of that when I broke my back and I’m actually very grateful for that.” — Becky Peavy [0:13:27]
