Incredible Transformation

Dear Eric,  I’m sharing my testimony in hopes of being the encouragement and motivation someone may need as they begin there journey on living a healthier life.  I was always slightly overweight and at 18 years old lost my sister in an accident.  From that point on I steadily gained weight until I reached a whopping 232lbs.  I came to a crossroads in my life where I knew if I didn’t do something about my weight I would inherit obesity related illnesses and my self esteem would continue to decline.  I chose to take action.  On January 24, 2005 I underwent Gastric Bypass surgery and began a new life.  I committed to exercise and healthy eating habits in my life and joined your gym March 1, 2005.  The guidance and education I received from the moment I walked in the door have been phenomenal!   I participated in the group classes offered three times per week.  Your support was exactly what I needed to create the foundation of a solid exercise routine.  I was introduced to a combination of weight and circuit training, forms of Pilates and a variety of cardio workouts.  I even learned how to exercise outdoors to add a variety to my routine.  I participate in special events such as the Turkey Trot, Thanksgiving and Christmas Hikes and one-on-one nutrition sessions.  I was forming new habits, getting fast results, reduced stress level and a genuine feeling of happiness.   Although I experienced days where my enthusiasm was low, I relied on my trainers to get me through my session.  I learned discipline is developed through action. With time I developed new habits, which in turn gave me results.  In October of 2006 I received the wonderful news that I was expecting my first baby.  I continued exercising throughout my pregnancy and on June 2, 2007 gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy!  I am back at my pre-pregnancy weight and created a new life for my son and me.   I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been!  I went from a size 18 to a size 4.  I’ve learned the secret to losing weight or accomplishing your goals is to have a decided heart, a support team and the determination to change your habits.  I wish everyone who reads this success, happiness and health!  I give my story with love, gratitude and a warm heartfelt thank you to you and your staff’s part in my transformation.   Yours in Great Health,  Connie Corral
