“I joined BEFIT in January 2016 and can say it was one of the best decisions of my life. At the time I was looking for an alternative to just going through the motions at the gym. I found that when I went to a local gym, I lacked motivation to really push myself. Additionally, I just found it boring. My first class at BEFIT had me hooked. I can remember feeling a sense of exhaustion and inspiration that I didn’t get anywhere else. Alicia was one of the regular trainers at my time slot and I was so blown away with her support and encouragement. The staff have a way of really making the experience personal and motivating and make an effort to acknowledge your improvements. My first week I can remember not being able to do one push up and now almost two years later, I am able to do chin ups, pull, ups and resisted push-ups.
What I like about BEFIT is its strong emphasis on making BEFIT a lifestyle. It’s not just about working out a few times a week, but also changing your mentality. Food was a huge factor for me and Josh did a great job at educating me on what “healthy eating” really entails. I learnt you can never eat enough protein, carbs are literally everywhere and bagels are never a good idea… This knowledge has completely changed my outlook on nutrition and really boosted my results.
BEFIT is not just a gym but a family. I have been fortunate enough to make some great friendships and encouragers along the way. The 6:30PM class has been great motivation and it is those people who get me up and going on the days I just don’t want to go. Shout out to my gym partner and #1 cheerleader John for keeping my nutrition in line! I’d like to thank the entire BEFIT family: Josh, Karen, Alicia, Joe, Chantal, Patrick and Ruth you guys are so good at your job and have created a really amazing place!”
