“I was approaching my 50th birthday and was sick of feeling tired, suffering from body aches and back pain, and feeling like I was trapped inside someone else’s body. I was inspired by my co-worker/friend Maxine, who always raved about her gym and exuded the energy and strength I was longing for. So, in October 2018, I decided to go on a quest to “Make Michele Great Again!” and signed up for Befit’s two-week trial. I’ve never looked back.
I knew it was a special place, when I walked in for my second class and was greeted by name. Alicia, Joe, Josh & Irvin have been incredibly supportive and encouraging, and are so great at making modifications if I’m hurting, and giving recommendations to avoid injury, and getting the most benefit from each exercise. I also love the convenience of multiple class times to work around my kids’ busy schedules.
I’ve had many friends comment on my weight loss and ask me how I’ve done it. I tell them I joined an amazing gym. The first question they ask is “how much?”. My answer is “priceless”. My only regret is not finding this place earlier. I never thought I’d also be “that person” who loves going to the gym, but here I am…
‘Be fit and have fun!’”
