Before becoming so inspired by Fit 4 Life that I became a full-time trainer I worked full-time in customer service. I am also wife, and am a mom of 3 kids ages 17, 15 and 10. I have not had a lot of time to devote to myself over the last 16 years as just being a wife/mom takes up most of my time. I think the biggest barrier for me was being tired and the end of the day and not wanting to exercise.
I have been working out at Fit 4 Life for about 10 months now but before working out I had very little energy. I found it very hard to move through my day without being completely exhausted and I had very low self-esteem. I had sporadically worked out over the years and went to a traditional gym but felt lost because I didn’t know how I should be working out. Looking in a mirror was torture (and still is sometimes)!
I finally decided that it was time to put myself first, something that very few moms can or are willing to do. With my kids’ being a little older, I felt I could challenge myself with this task. I had to get the weight off. I was tired of being unmotivated and I was tired of also having to shop in the plus size department. I really let myself go and I decided that I deserved to get myself back on track for myself and for my family!
I was concerned with passing out or throwing up during/after my first workout (that never happened ). In the past, I have struggled with a sciatic nerve issue. There were times where I could not even walk I was in so much pain, so I was very concerned about that flaring up. I also suffer from allergies/asthma and was worried about having an asthma attack, but I survived the first workout and it got better from there!
I don’t even know where to begin with my results. The change has been dramatic! Besides looking very different, I feel wonderful. I have so much more energy and was able to play against my daughter in a soccer game (something I would never have done a year ago). I feel motivated to keep going and to spread my love of working out to anyone who will listen. My mindset is so different now in that I know how to challenge myself to keep pushing forward. I feel more confident and I think that shows through.
I really enjoyed working out with awesome trainers and clients! I enjoyed the nutrition program and sharing success stories with other clients. It is motivating to hear how other people are changing their lives!
Fit 4 Life will change your life forever!! It is the best thing that I have ever done! The bootcamp sessions are an awesome workout. The workouts are only 30 minutes out of your day and the workout changes daily. You will never complete the same workout twice! The sessions are structured so you get a full body workout, but also focuses each time on a different muscle group. I think that is what I like best. Also, it is great to work out with people who are there for similar reasons as you are, whether those reason are to get in shape or if you are there to lose weight, or both! John is the best trainer around! I have learned so much from Him, and everyone challenges and motivates you to complete each workout like it is your last. I tell everyone about Fit 4 Life and what a great workout it is and challenge any of you to try it as well!
What would you say to someone thinking about trying Fit 4 Life
Fit 4 Life is the best decision I have ever made and the best decision you could make for yourself! If you are looking to just get in shape, the 30 minute bootcamp will definitely do that for you. The program is well structured so that you work as hard as you possibly can for 30 minutes maximizing your after burn. If you are looking for nutrition help, you have come to the right place! There are many options of nutrition plans to follow. The best part of all is the opportunity to work with a fabulous trainer who helps you achieve both short and long-term goals, is extremely motivating and believes that anyone can do anything with just the right mind-set! If you want to change your life, you have come to the right place!
