Polly Tatum | The Fitness Asylum

Polly Tatum

work in a very challenging yet rewarding field as a Divorce Mediator and Estate Planning Attorney for the past 21 years. I found that I was very sedentary and weight started to pile on a little at a time. Next thing I knew I was overweight by almost 30 pounds. At the encouragement of some past participants, I joined fitness asylum in January of 2017 at first to dive into the bikini challenge and then at the last minute switched to the body challenge. I went to one boot camp and didn’t return. Basically making every excuse in the books – busy schedule, etc! I rarely worked out for the next 7 months. Finally, I re-committed and began the fall -2017 bikini challenge. I had no intention of getting on stage – but I needed the structure to start to get in shape. As I went through each week – I started believing that I could actually reach my goal and get on stage. Ultimately – I lost about 20 pounds during the first challenge and more importantly gained confidence, energy and mentally and physically more fit. Although I didn’t compete in November of 2017 – I now knew I would do the challenge one more time and get on stage. So in January of 2018 – I took the plunge and committed to getting on stage in May of 2018. I must admit – I gave it about 85% with the workouts and eating plan and felt amazing transforming my body and mindset. The benefits for me professionally, was now I have a wonderful stress outlet in order to serve my clients in their most difficult times of their lives. I also have more energy and focus each and every day. I am grateful to the Fitness Asylum – Bonnie and the support of all of the staff and competitors for helping me to attain more balance both mind and body! Looking forward to the fall of 2018 challenge.
