Before I decided to join Breakthrough, I did have hesitations about joining, especially when Chris did the functionality tests and I struggled doing some of the movements, that was truly an eye-opener.
I wondered whether I would be able to do the exercises, if I’d like the size of the classes, and would I fit in?
I just recently overcame my hesitations even though I have been coming for about 3 years. What has helped is the support I have received from the members of my 4pm class as well as many of the other members of other classes.
What has also truly helped is knowing that whatever physical limitations I may have, the coaches can provide alternative exercises for me so that I can continue my workouts.
I have had both knees and hips replaced due to overuse and normal wear and tear on my body but Breakthrough has worked with me to meet my goals whether it was modifying certain exercises or just encouraging me to start with lower weights or reps and rebuild as I got stronger again, especially after the surgeries.
Throughout all of the surgeries, the members and all the coaches have been extremely supportive and encouraging; even members that I don’t particularly know from other classes, seem to know me and encourage/push me to give it my best.
