When I first heard about Breakthrough it was because of an advertisement for an intro to yoga class.
I was interested in yoga but never really liked going to a class, I didn’t know what the poses were called and I felt like I was trying to follow along while I was upside down.
What interested me was that the class said they were going to break things down, learn what the poses were, and be with others that were new to yoga.
Because I saw the advertisement on Facebook I was still a bit hesitant that maybe it was a scam. So I contacted Chris and because of my reservations he allowed me to come to a class and check it out before committing and after that I was sold.
I began regularly participating in the yoga classes and after a while Breakthrough offered a trial of their large group class.
I told my husband I was going to give it a try and I jokingly told him, “I know what’s going to happen…I’m going to like it and start that too”.
I was right, I loved it.
I sat down with Chris and went over my goals and he helped me figure out which membership would be the best for me. I really wasn’t looking for weight loss, I wanted to improve my cardiovascular system and improve my endurance.
During my first couple of years at Breakthrough “You can’t outwork a bad diet” got drilled into my brain but I still wasn’t biting…I wanted to get strong and improve my endurance but I wanted to continue eating what I wanted.
Breakthrough periodically offers challenges and when I did my first challenge I really didn’t follow the meal plan.
The second challenge I followed the meal plan more closely and began seeing results.
The healthy eating finally started to get into my head and they offered a support group of sorts and that became life changing.
I learned what to eat, in what combinations and how often. Not to mention the support of my peers and coaches.
My favorite thing about Breakthrough is the personalization and family feel.
I love the energy and the positivity and I truly appreciate the focus on avoiding injury.
Since joining my endurance has improved, I’ve gotten stronger, and I’ve experienced fat loss.
I now have knowledge which I use to take better care of myself and I’ve gained friends that support my journey.
After joining Breakthrough I referred my husband. He had previously attended Crossfit but I didn’t feel like they were focusing on the importance of form and breathing.
I had him come with me for a class and he ended up joining.
I would tell anyone that if you want a supportive, truly friendly environment that will focus on your needs, this is the place to be.
