“After I had my second son in August 2014, I knew that it was time to refocus some time and energy on myself. First introduced to Me First Fitness by way of the very first Wag Jag, I had been enjoying the challenging work outs for a few years already (right up until my 35th week of pregnancy thanks to some awesome modifications from the trainers!). The club had always inspired me – through trainer motivation, the positive energy from the other clients, and the friendships that I have made along the way. Although I was very committed to the exercise portion of a healthy lifestyle, I never really had a good understanding of just how important the nutritional aspect is for me.
Six weeks post partum, I returned to Me First at 215lbs, and I knew that I needed some guidance. I began personal training with Mark. The first thing that happened was that he gave me a new way of eating. He showed me the things that my body needed, and what I needed to cut way back on (and in case you are interested, CHEESE was high on my personal list). I was not happy about these changes, but decided that I was going to commit to this healthy eating plan the way I had always been committed to exercise. I lost 9 lbs my first week. I continued training with Mark weekly, attended the same amount classes that I had previously been doing, followed a meal plan, and the weight just kept on coming off.
Fast forward to now. It has been over a year since I hit my initial goal weight, and now a full year at my current weight (15 lbs LESS than my initial goal). I am maintaining! I am strong! I feel great! I couldn’t imagine that it was possible for me to be in the best shape of my life at 34 years old, but here I am. I am so thankful for everything that Me First Fitness offers me. I have never found any other place that I always WANT to work out at. Thanks to the staff and clients, I know that I will be in the Me First Family for life!”
