“What is it about Befit that makes me keep at it?
It is Josh and his team of trainers. It’s the perfect combination of expertise, encouragement, accountability (kicking my butt) and motivation that I experience every time I come in.
When I first started, I wasn’t the type of guy to go to the gym. I was lucky to have a job that kept me physically active but 10 years ago I was promoted to a desk and then the weight started to creep on. Showing up in the beginning was intimidating (boy, was I uncoordinated). But Josh had set his program up so that newbies like me could participate. Having experienced several injuries in my youth, the trainers were able to offer alternatives that allowed me to deal with the injury in a safe way as I continued to get stronger. And working out in a group, I could see others who were like me and feel encouraged to keep on. And with time, as I got stronger, I could move on to harder versions of each exercise. And of course, seeing others working out, showed me what was needed to progress and that has challenged me to work harder everyday. I am pleased that every week I set a personal best , lifting weights that I was thought once impossible.
I am very thankful that I made that decision 4 years ago and have become part of the Befit family. The friends I have met have made it all worth while.”
