I joined The Fitness Asylum for the first time in September along with two of my friends. We wanted to lose weight and get in shape and someone recommended this gym to us. I have been to other gyms to before and have been told the merits of eating clean but was never able to learn exactly what that meant. Thanks to joining the Fall Body Challenge I was able to learn all about eating clean. I weighed in, read the packet, shopped for healthy clean foods, prepped my meals and was on my way. Through constant contact with my team and the inner circle, I was able to ask questions when I got confused or needed recipe ideas or any type of advice. Soon I added in bootcamps; one or two per week to start then three times weekly.
The bootcamps are so much fun with experienced instructors who care about your form and help encourage you throughout the workout. Through the facebook pages and from sweating alongside others, new friendships were forged. As the challenge went on, we were asked to dig deeper into what our story was and where we have struggled in the past. I was amazed by the honesty, bravery, and authenticity shared in these posts; all were truly inspiring. Add in the two fundraisers I was able to take part in, one for Make a Wish and the other for Strong4Abby and that solidified who wonderful The Fitness Asylum community truly is. During this challenge I have lost 18.1 pounds but more importantly I have gained strength, stamina, support, confidence, friendships, and determination to see this lifestyle change through.
I am taking part in the Holiday Challenge and am also signed up for The Winter Challenge. If you are ready to make a change, think no more about it. You will feel lucky to become part of our FAmily. Join for the accountability, stay for the community.
