I joined Breakthrough 8 years ago, when my children were in middle and elementary school.
I was very hesitant because my life was so chaotic between family and work that I wasn’t sure I would be consistent with going to the gym. I was also nervous about being able to complete the workouts.
The trainers quickly eased my fears by giving me individual attention and coaching which boosted my confidence. I also made the class times work into my busy schedule so I would remain a consistent participant.
My favorite part of coaching with Breakthrough is the coaches. They know each person by name and know what their goals are so each workout is tailored to a member’s specific goals whether it be weight loss, endurance, or building muscle.
I work out consistently with the same people in my 5 o’clock class so they are my good friends. We have a great deal in common and we enjoy each other’s company. They motivate me to come to workout each day and each week.
I’ve experienced so many positive changes since starting with Breakthrough. I’ve consistently worked out for many years so my muscle tone is great as are my cardiac abilities and I’m able to keep up with my kids!
Exercise is a great stress relief for me as I have a demanding job so I can’t wait to get to the gym each day to work out my stress.
I have lost 23 pounds this year due to working with one of the coaches on a specific eating plan so I have even more energy!
I have such healthy routines in my life now. I work out on a specific schedule with great friends, getting healthier together is so much easier than trying to do it alone!
As a result I have a positive outlook on life and am up for most any challenge.
To anyone on the fence about joining Breakthrough I’d tell you we all have to start somewhere so don’t wait for the perfect time to join because you’ll never find one.
Start today and it’s okay to be nervous, we all had to start somewhere but Breakthrough will provide all the support you need, you just have to show up.
Women tend to put everyone else first and then as the kids get older, we find ourselves sad and feeling negative about ourselves. We need to know it’s okay to put our health first as we need to be healthy in order to take care of others.
Exercising should not be considered a luxury but a way to get healthy, relive stress, and have a positive outlook on life.
