book cover

When faced with adversity, some people are going to cave under the pressure and self-destruct. Others are going to face the challenge head on and use it as a stepping stone for a better life. Making tragedy a building block is exactly how Crystal Woods reacted after being kidnapped by her father as a young girl and enduring a childhood of abuse. Crystal shares the memories of a tragic childhood that has become the fuel necessary to achieve a healthy life and relationships in her memoir, A Child’s Not So Sweet Life.

Crystal’s story will touch you. The strength and resilience that she possesses is evident not only in her spirit, but in her body as well. A champion bodybuilder, personal trainer, stage coach, judge and athlete, Crystal has overcome a life dominated by adversity. Her example and her spirit will inspire you to take stock of your life and move forward, regardless of the impediments in front of you.
