“This will not work for me”… Have you ever said that to yourself? I have too.. Many.. MANY times..

I signed up for the Fall 2016 Body Challenge totally expecting to fail like I had failed at every other weight loss plan I have ever tried.. I was skeptical at best when I went to the kick-off meeting in September 2016,
But after listening to the team captains and Bonnie speak , I decided that if I was going to be paying for this, I was going to try and give it my all.

Even though I was scared to death going to my first boot camp, I knew that I had to at least try and make it through the class (to be honest, I was hoping that I hated it or that it was too hard or the people there would make me feel so uncomfortable so I could have another excuse to quit.) Boy, was I wrong.. I didn’t hate it! (OK, I didn’t love it and I had no idea what I was doing) but no one looked at me funny.. EVERY person at that 1st boot camp was friendly, encouraging and kept telling me that I could do this. As the weeks went on, I felt myself getting stronger and my stamina has improved incredibly and now I have muscles I didn’t even know I had!!

The challenge and the Fitness Asylum changed my WHOLE life for the better. I am now into my 2nd body challenge, down 45 pounds, gained muscles and I am so much stronger, mentally and physically than I have ever been. I am in the best shape of my life and I am in control of my food choices. I am most grateful for the friends that I have made at the Fitness Asylum. They are the most supportive, kindest group of badasses that I have ever met. I know that I have made lifelong friends here.

I am so proud of my accomplishments because of this program and for all the people that are involved in making it what it is.

Best decision I ever made for myself was to take the challenge and take control of my life. I am a “lifer” and am so thankful that I walked in that door that day.
