“When I walked through the door at BEFIT a little over four years ago I honestly did not realize I was taking the first step to changing my life. After cruising through my twenties with not having to workout, simple play beer-league hockey a few times a week, and not gaining weight I suddenly found myself in my mid-thirties with no muscle mass and a good sized belly. I struggled for a couple of years trying to workout at local fitness clubs to no avail. There was no motivation for me, and more importantly no support. To say the least, I was very frustrated and couldn’t maintain a consistent work out regime. That all changed the day I did my first class at BEFIT.I started my first class at 185lbs and made it half way through the workout and had to stop due to overexertion. But unlike the other gyms where I would leave discouraged and not return, something different happened. Josh walked over and gave me a pep talk. He told me that a lot of guys in my situation go through this and I need to keep at it and in no time I would be able to handle the workouts with ease. So I took him at his word and sure enough my life changed. Within a few months I was at the gym six days a week and doing the BEFIT level workouts, pushing to improve every day. I also started watching my diet with Josh’s guidance and now, four years later, I am in the best shape of my life and strive to lift more, move faster and push harder at every workout. And although I’ve only lost 2.5 pounds since day one, the body transformation is shocking when I look at my day one photo. Josh and his great trainers have helped me commit to a healthy, active lifestyle; and I can’t thank them enough.And if that wasn’t enough I found something else, something I can’t put a price on, at BEFIT. A great community! Josh and his staff have created a supportive, encouraging, and fun environment that attracts some of the best people I’ve ever met. No matter what my mood is walking through the door at BEFIT in know I will leave all the stress of life behind when I walk out. It did not take long for BEFIT to become my “happy place.” I’ve met too many great people to mention here, but needless to say my decision to make a healthy change in my physical life has led to healthy changes in my mental and social lives.
So thank you to Josh, Karen and all the great trainers, past and present. And thank you to all the great people I’ve met over the last four years. I could not have gotten where I am today without everyone’s support and encouragement.”
