"I have been a member of the gym for a while now... I started at the gym the year I turned 40. I was unhappy with myself and my health wasn't all that great.
I started out doing the classes in the evening. I would do one class, go home and think man that class was tough, but the workout felt good. Boy was I sore! Just kept at it. I took baby steps. Then I started doing two classes a night. I finally had the stamina to do so! Then I started watching what I ate and the weight really started coming off.
Then, my dear BFF took over the gym. Things REALLY evolved from there. She got me really involved in running. This past month, I actually did a half ironman! So the gym to me means if you put your mind to it with God's help there is nothing you can't do!
I love the gym and gym family. I have definitely met some great people there that I truly call "good" friends who wouldn't turn their back on you! Last but not least, with a very supportive spouse! He joined the gym also. So, now it is something we can do together! Love our gym! ~Belinda Barker
