My journey with Breakthrough began almost a year ago.
One of my closest friends’ sisters found this amazing place and invited me on more than one occasion to sit in on a class or come to an open workout.
I’ll admit I was intrigued, but a little apprehensive.
I was already lifting at the gym with a workout partner four days a week and figured that what I was doing was enough.
I gave no thought to what I was eating and after about a year of lifting weights, I really didn’t see results and I had injured my back.
I finally decided to give Breakthrough a try.
What could I lose?
My first workout happened to be the July 4th workout.
I got a red, white, and blue tank top and came in not really knowing what to expect.
I was completely taken off guard by how many people came in dressed for the event, and dressed to the hilt!
Immediately I LOVED it!
Chris and Karen both welcomed me, along with the other members and I was hooked.
I learned about how to fuel my body with the proper things, in the proper increments and began to see changes.
The guidance I receive from not only the trainers, but everyone who is in my 5 AM session, at the Thursday night support meetings, and Saturday morning sessions, make this gym unique.
I have had more success doing this than anything else I have tried before to lose weight and get healthy.
I know that I can reach out to the other members and they can relate to struggles I’m having.
They offer support when I’m having doubts or life gets in the way.
It’s not all about the number on the scale, although that number has dropped.
I can lift heavier, I’m more flexible, I have more energy, and I feel so much better about myself than I did when I first came to Breakthrough.
Mentally I am tougher cookie ☺.
My story continues… I have things I still want to accomplish, but I am most certainly better than I was when I began.
I see the positive changes in my life and I can’t put a price tag on those changes.
I will be wearing a dress that is two sizes smaller; I will be stronger than I have ever been; I will be more confident that I ever remember feeling… and I will ROCK that dress!
Here’s to many healthy, happy, strong years to come!
