My journey started with the Spring Body Challenge. My goal was to be back to my pre-pregnancy weight which I reached and exceeded. Once that challenged ended, I knew I wanted to take my fitness to the next level but I was unsure how. So, one day after working out at FA, I was speaking to Kelly Sullivan about it and she recommended that I sign-up for the Bikini Challenge. In 6 months, I have lost 23 lbs since joining Fitness Asylum.
When I signed up, I had no intentions of getting on stage. As time progressed and with the support & encouragement from my husband, I decided to take in the whole experience which not only meant that I would get on stage with my Fitness Asylum Bikini babes, but to also compete in the regular show. This is something that’s not even on my bucket list and is definitely outside of my comfort zone.
Although I’ve had some challenges along the way (lower back injury), I kept going and was determined to get on that stage. So I did! I went into it for the experience and was surprised that I actually placed 5th in FA-3 & walked away with a trophy. Who would have thought?!?
The transformation over the past 12 weeks has been incredible. I never would have thought in my life that I can have a body I have always dreamed of, especially to achieve this in my 40’s & after having a baby. I am in the best shape of my life now – better than when I was in my teens, 20’s and 30’s. I never thought that my body was capable of developing the muscle tone that I have today.
Being part of the Bikini Challenge made me part of a team with a group of the most dedicated, committed, supportive and amazing women I have ever met. Bonnie and the Fitness Asylum family has changed my life and has saved me in a lot of ways. Joining the Fitness Asylum family is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am looking forward to joining the next Spring Bikini Challenge!
