I must first start this message to you with a big Thank You!!! Thank you for providing an environment that helped me change my life. I could not have made these life changes without the constant support, encouragement and follow-up from you and all the trainers at Punch. Even when I didn’t believe that I could do the new exercise or use a heavier weight, Chris and his staff certainly believed that I had the ability and constantly encouraged me to keep trying. And to my amazement, I could do all those things and more!
I must admit that I was a bit intimidated about attending a program called “Boot Camp” and almost quit before I started. I even emailed Chris to express my reservations about not being able to complete the program since I was so overweight and incredibly out of shape. But Chris politely entertained all my concerns and even offered to refund my money. But he also ended his email with the following comment, “if you aren’t ready to change…” and that comment is what truly convinced me that this was the right program for me! I was so ready to change, but was afraid of one more failure.
Attending Boot Camp was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made when it comes to fitness and making the right lifestyle changes for me. Not only have I NOT FAILED, I’ve lost over 20 pounds, lost 6% body fat, lost a tremendous amount of inches and gained so much muscle. I still don’t believe the changes in my body and am excited to have dropped two sizes as well. I started the program not being able to do one sit-up and now I do lots of them with a 20 pound weight!
I am not the same person I was when I started this program. Besides the physical changes, I have so much more energy, sleep very well and wake up before the alarm clock. I plan my day around my work-out class and do whatever I can to attend my session. I am constantly thinking about getting the appropriate amount of nutrition and have stopped thinking about being on a diet. I have embarked on a lifestyle change and have embraced it whole-heartedly!
After completely my last Boot Camp session, I have decided to join Punch Kettlebell Gym as a member. I have a long way to go and am excited about having all the staff behind me as I continue my journey!
So thanks again to: Chris, Katie, Christen, Karen, JJ and Matt!! I could not have done any of this without your support!
