I came to the Fitness Asylum by way of my neighbor, Jessie Lee. I was in a slump feeling very unhappy with how I looked and felt. I never had a weight problem, then I quit smoking, got married, got pregnant all within about a year or so, 3 months after my daughter was born before I even tried to loose that pregnancy weight I was pregnant again with my son, after he was born I found myself with 30 plus pounds to loose.
I was 40 years old, had “Irish twins” and was exhausted….I tried working out at home during the day but just never got it done, while the kids napped I either napped or relaxed or ate. I went and looked at other gyms and just never felt comfortable and knew it would be a waste of money. Jessie raved about her boxing class and told me about the fall challenge she had just signed up for and I immediately felt like I should do it, I went on the website checked it out and decided this was it, that it was time for a change and I signed up.
Best decision ever……the fitness asylum is the most amazing place I have ever been. It does not matter if you have 5 pounds to loose or 100, if you are young, old or in between everyone fits in and I loved that. From the other new challengers, the vets who have been doing it a while, the amazing instructors, the team captains that have your back every step of the way, everyone is so supportive and kind to all. This is not your typical gym!!!
This contagious support makes you want to succeed and to keep going. I made it through my first challenge and I have lost over 16 pounds, and I feel great.
I am now doing the holiday challenge, and already signed up for the winter challenge and can’t wait to get stronger, leaner, happier and probably no definitely the healthiest I have been in my 43 years….
