I had very low self-esteem before coming to Fit4Life and have sporadically worked out over the years. In the past, I have gone to a traditional gym and have felt lost because I didn’t know how I should be working out.
My goals were/are twofold: I have a long-term goal of losing 85 pounds and a fitness goal of just being in better shape to play soccer with my daughter and maybe run a 5K.
In a little over 3 months I have lost 32 pounds. I have more energy to play with my daughter and am currently training for a 5K at the end of June.
I am starting to feel better about myself. I didn’t put the weight on overnight and will not lose it overnight but as I see my body take on a different shape and see the numbers on the scale go down, that makes me realize that I am worth it!
I try to be very “me” focused during my bootcamp workouts. So, after the 30 minutes, I feel proud, exhausted and motivated!
I have realized that I have changed the way that I look at eating. There are days when I still struggle and want that piece of cake or chocolate (all is good in moderation) but I know the decision is mine as to whether I actually want to eat it or not. I have the POWER!
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!
Kristy has now lost over 95 Pounds (even since the picture)! Here are the new pictures and what she had to say about the rest of it:
I work full-time in customer service, I am a wife, and am a mom of 3 kids ages 17, 15 and 10. Just
being a wife/mom takes up most of my time. I think the biggest barrier for me is 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.
Looking in a mirror was torture (and still is sometimes)!
Eventually I 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! 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. I struggled at first, but now I feel great when I work out.
I don’t even know where to begin to describe how different I feel now.
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 10 months
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 loved 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!
It will change your life forever!! Fit 4 Life is the best thing that I have ever done! The bootcamp classes are an awesome workout. The classes are
only 30 minutes out of your day and the workout changes daily. You will never complete the same workout
twice! The class is 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 and
Grace are the best trainers around! I have learned so much from them as they each bring their own style to the
workout. They both challenge and motivate you to complete each class 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!
