April has lost 11 pounds and 23 inches in 5 months of bootcamp – she reached her 10 pound weight loss goal after just 1 month and has continued to stay lean and build muscle! But more importantly, she also QUIT SMOKING!!! Here’s her story:
“I first went to Revfit with no intentions of committing to the gym. I had just heard about spin and decided to try a class. With no purpose in mind, I began doing drop classes until I joined as a general member and slowly began to find myself getting more comfortable in more than just spin classes. I began to venture out and try weights, for the first time. I struggled with my weight gain about 7 years ago, weighing the most I have ever weighed at 210 lbs. I lost 60 lbs. on my own and played between 150-160 lbs for years, until I found Revfit. After 6 months of gyming on my own, I soon started to consider bootcamp because I was going through a major life transition and felt I needed to physically change with it also. I spoke with Bobbi and explained to her my story and how I maybe wanted to drop 10 lbs and gain muscle! But I was never one to start something and finish it, NO way, not me!! I was never one for physical activity or sweating! But God had a purpose for me walking through those doors 6 months prior to me signing my “life” away to a 3:45 a.m bootcamp.
My first day of bootcamp I was the only person in Bobbi’s group and soon started to think I was in way over my head! Slowly these absolutely wonderful women started joining Bootcamp “B” and soon I began to find apart of myself I had never experienced. I found myself looking forward to bootcamp, I even moved a street over from the gym to be closer to where my heart was. I’ve gained friendships with these women who share the same struggles and encourage me to push and focus even when I feel like I physically cannot go anymore. The love I have for them and Revfit is nothing compared to the love they have shown me. Watching such wonderful people drop their guards and commit to something so physical was absolutely inspiring to me. I have seen each one of us achieve goals, and that in it’s self is the most rewarding and gratifying feeling I have ever felt. I myself have accomplished more things in the past 5 months that I would have NEVER attempted alone… I have successfully quit smoking, ran an entire 5k, hit a PR of 505lbs on leg press, did an unassisted pull-up and last but not least and most importantly I didn’t give up on myself for the very first time in my life. I finished something!!!!”
ALL GOD! All week long I said for first time we’d take Revfit Gym a gym founded on God to the middle of a stage I competed on for the first time 7 years ago. A dream I had and NEVER EVER KNEW HOW TRUE OR HOW BIG THIS WOULD BE! I dreamed of competing for my own gym and that dream happened…. the dream I didn’t know was that this gym would be founded on God and the very reason I compete (our people), my husband, our children, my parents, my sister, and trainers, employees, clients and members would get to join and take the stage with jen and I! As my mother and father in law and my mentor councilor and mother in so many ways… the woman who took this lost pudgy (as she puts it), codependent, angry, riddled with anxiety woman on would be sitting in audience while Joy takes this picture! If you zoom into this pic I’m looking up in tears… in complete awe of Gods faithfulness, goodness, and power! To change this woman and make the impact HE has made on so many people’s lives as he changes and continues to change me … and use this gym and everyone in it as a tool to help others change their lives as he changes ours! This was a complete full circle moment! I took the stage 7th year after a 3 year break after teaching 7 spin classes in 3 days! All Gods numbers! All the while saying we were taking our founded on God front and center and that’s exactly what God did! Goes to show us words have power beyond our wildest imagination! We won the spirit award and I took 2nd place in my masters class and 3rd in my open class and jen took 3rd in her masters class; I’m beyond proud of you Jennifer Daigle! I’m beyond grateful and would like to thank my amazing team of trainers, my husband, children, family, and employees for getting us to and on stage!

Today was a very special day! Holly told me a few weeks ago that we were asked to give a talk on the 7 habits of highly effective people…. I had never read the book…. So to actually read it and realize it’s something I practice and teach others to practice daily was an eye opening…. Today for the first time (besides on spin bike) I spoke publicly about my childhood and how I’ve gotten where I am today supported by Leslie, Holly, Brent and my sister. It was an honor to be able to share with these amazing middle schoolers the possibilities of their lives… That they can actually change the world by practicing these habits. I’d like to thank Lesley Dugas Angelle and Carencro Middle School for having us! It was Truly an honor and another dream come true! I’ve always wanted to help change and give hope to our communities and today We got to share our amazing gym and our vision.. Looking forward to many more opportunities!
