“Going to a gym was completely out of my comfort zone. I had never worked out before and really didn’t know how to start but knew I needed to make some lifestyle changes. After doing my research, BEFIT’s personal training in a group setting seemed to be best suited for me. I wasn’t sure if this was going to be my thing after my 1st meeting with Josh in 2019 but I decided to stick with it and see what happened. I came to the classes on a regular basis but still, in my mind, was not making a lot of progress. Then I woke up one day in the beginning of 2021 and I decided I was going to seriously make a change. I set small, achievable goals for myself and slowly but surely started losing weight. It wasn’t as fast as I wanted, but I am not as young as I once was, and I realized putting on the weight didn’t happen overnight, so losing it overnight wasn’t going to happen either. Strength training is slowly giving me a body I never knew I wanted and muscles I didn’t know I had! I’ve discovered that I am a work-in-progress and am excited to see how much more I can improve. This is a great community and I have made great new friends and I can’t thank Josh, Emily and Irvin enough for their encouragement and positive attitudes.”
