All my life I’ve always been the girl with a pretty smile. I’ve also always surrounded myself with “skinny” friends. So needless to say my self esteem was not really high. In January 2012, my boss started going to Fitness MD and talked to me about going with her but I could never build up enough courage. Finally in May I had enough and decided I needed to change my life. I was tired of being the “fat” girl of all my friends. I was ready to start feeling comfortable in my clothes, let alone, my own skin.
My first day, I was so nervous going but I am so happy I did. After my first workout, I thought I was going to die but knew this was the place that would help me better myself and change my life. I sat down with my trainer, David, to make a meal and workout plan. I was so sore and tired from all the workouts yet I kept going. All I wanted to do was go back to the couch, but I couldn’t do it. Without the support of David, Gary, Eric and the rest of the Fitness MD staff I would have quit.
Fitness MD is so different than any other gym I had ever tired. They care. They support. They say “Hi” when you come in, by name! They encourage. This staff has helped me reach my goals this far and I know there are many more to come. I have them to thank for me coming to the gym and enjoying it. I have them to thank for their dedication and support. I know without them I would never be this far along on my weight loss goals. The most motivating part of Fitness MD for me is the assessment process. Every six weeks, my trainer measures my progress by: taking my measurements (body fat, inches and weight), track our mile and half run, push ups, sit ups and my strength progress. Seeing my numbers on paper and how far I have come keeps me coming back.
In July 2013, I am turning 30. My goal is to be at my goal weight so I can celebrate and be one of the “skinny” girls with all my friends and family. Fitness MD has changed me forever, not just physically and mentally, but my lifestyle. This is something I can see myself doing for a very long time. I have David, Gary, Eric, Jenny and everyone else at Fitness MD to thank. You guys have made me the person I have always wanted to be! Thank you!
