“Even though I can’t imagine a week without working out now, fitness has not always been a part of my life. I decided to make my health a priority after having my first baby 11 years ago and I haven’t looked back. It’s been a true lifestyle change and quite honestly one of the best decisions I have made. It’s a conscious daily decision that has given me a whole new way of life. I am so grateful for BeFit and how it checks all the boxes for me. I have been a member at a few gyms over the years but here are a few things I love most about BeFit.

  • The watchful eyes from the coaches. The tweaking of form and spurring on is so appreciated! Thanks Chantal and Emily especially with our early morning crew.
  • The challenging workouts. I love that there is always a mix of fun and pain. Some slower paced, more controlled sessions and some fast and furious ones too. It’s good to do exercises I don’t love; probably means I need to focus more of them.
  • The programming is thought out and I love how you can see it builds on what the month before offered. I love to lift a barbell, boy do I ever , but I know the clamshells and band pull-apart’s serve a purpose too. Thanks Josh for keeping us balanced out.
  • The community we have. It doesn’t matter what class you show up to at any time of day, you can see the community and encouragement at our gym. People genuinely love to see people around them improve in strength and fitness. I love seeing all the regular faces at our early morning classes. We have some good healthy competition which always pushes me a little harder and I love that!

At the end of the day, fitness is more than all of that for me. I love to work out for my physical strength and health but more so, for my mental well-being. I feel like myself when I can move my body and am so grateful that the team at BeFit is here for that.”
