I walked in to BODIFY on to December 24 , 2016. 2 years, 9 months after having a cerebellum stroke. I was overweight, I had poor balance, weak muscles, NO endurance and there was this disconnect between my brain and my legs. I was ready to do high knees, but my legs took a little longer to respond. I was determined to come in every day and challenge myself to try and get back to my normal self.
BODIFY has been the perfect place for me to come and train every day. I love the gym environment. The workouts are always different and challenging. All of the trainers are great and are not afraid to push me. If I’m struggling they know exactly what to say to help me get through that last rep. They are there to help me succeed!
I just completed the 8 week challenge and I feel stronger, fitter and healthier than I have ever felt. My balance and endurance have improved and I don’t feel like there is that disconnect anymore. It took a lot of discipline and commitment. There were days where I wanted to give in and just eat whatever I wanted, other days I didn’t want to get up to go workout. But then I remembered why I was doing this and I would think about my workout buddies and how committed they were to the challenge. I remained consistent, I lost some weight and gained some muscle but I’m not done yet! Looking forward to the next CHALLENGE….
