“You didn’t come this far to only come this far.”

Two years ago today I made a decision that changed my life. I was 38, a wife, and working mother of two young boys. I had been overweight for half of my twenties and all of my thirties and I was fed up. At my biggest I was a size 24 and tipped the scales at 280 lbs. I was skeptical and wasn't sure if I would succeed as I had failed so many times before. 

 I started off by changing my relationship with food and the weight started to come off, however I felt I needed something more. I had belonged to gyms in the past but never found a place where I was comfortable. I tried Healthtrax on the PREP program and immediately knew that this was the place for me. The members and staff were so friendly and welcoming.I started to attend group fitness classes and although I was intimidated at first, my fears quickly subsided. The instructors and trainers at Healthtrax kept me motivated and engaged. They showed me options and variations to customize workouts for my fitness level. Their coaching, energy, and encouragement got me hooked and kept me coming back. This facility has a great sense of community and support and the people have become a second family to me.

Fast forward to today: I am down 125 pounds, went from a size 24 jeans to a size 6, a 2XL shirt to a Small. I have become obsessed with fitness and am active every day. I am able to run for the first time in my life and have completed multiple 5Ks, OCRs, one 10K and one half marathon. I belong to the best gym with the most amazing staff and members. I loved it so much I recently became a certified MOSSA group fitness instructor, something I never thought possible. 

Remember that anything is possible if you put your mind to it!
