My name is Brenda. I’m a 48-year-old mom of 3 sons, been married for 25 years. I signed up with the Fitness Asylum in September of 2015, after seeing a friend who looked absolutely amazing. She was the same age as me so I thought, wow, if she can do it, so can I. I have never looked back. From that day forward, it was a goal to lose 50 pounds and possibly get on stage, someday, with some amazing-looking women. Wow, I could really get back into working out seriously again, even at my age and look like these women?! I had my sights set high, I knew, but I just kept going. Small steps turned my dreams into reality.
After just over one year, I’ve lost 50 pounds and I got on stage! What a day that was! Such an amazing day with amazing people. I will never forget it. As a matter fact, I’ll be back next year! It’s not just about the 50 pounds or getting on stage anymore. It’s about my relationships with my family, friends and being a part of such a great fitness community. I’ve really never experienced a gym like the Fitness Asylum. It is truly unique. From the workouts to the nutrition that the wonderful Bonnie Lefrak has put together, it never disappoints. Having her as a fitness coach has been nothing short of a blessing for me. I believe things happen for a reason, and the Fitness Asylum was the right place at the right time for me. I feel like a new person! It’s now about maintaining my weight, getting stronger and even more fit that I’ve ever imagined. This has been life changing. I look forward to what the next year will hold for me, as far as my fitness goals!
