July 14, 2017 at 3:45 AM!! I decided to make a change for myself. For years, I had a family member that had succeeded with RevFit and I was envious of her. She would tell me that there was a 3:45AM Bootcamp and I should come and check it out. I told her she was CRAZY and I would never get up in the middle of the night to workout, but she never gave up on me. I was 90 pounds overweight. I had been declined for life insurance TWICE. I was uncomfortable in my own skin and very prone to depression. I was on both blood pressure and cholesterol medication. I would scare my husband at night, because I would have episodes of apn ea from being so overweight. I was at my personal rock bottom.
On the morning of July 14, 2017 I woke up and was scared to death. I knew I would never be able to keep up. I threw up during my first Bootcamp. I left my first 2 spin classes after 10-15 minutes to go and sit in my car and cry. I was defeated by my own lack of ability, but I knew I needed to do this for me. I kept going back and slowly, but surely I got stronger. I had more stamina to get it done. I slowly but surely found myself again. As the weight came off, my self-confidence and self-worth came back. I was able to get off both my blood pressure and cholesterol medications. I was no longer the one having to be pushed to finish my workout, but I found myself pushing and encouraging others. Don’t get me wrong, I still get pushed, but these days it’s to push more weight or to move faster. The leaders at RevFit will never let you let yourself down.
These days, I guess I’m the one that is CRAZY. I have hit goal: twice. I have lost a total of 87 pounds and I look forward to waking up and challenging myself. It’s my get away, my sanity, & my anti-depressant. At RevFit, your family never lets you down. They never let you slack. They are always there to be a listening ear. I appreciate everyone that has helped me along the way and continue to help. I look forward to the future and continuing on my journey. I’d like to send a special thanks to Kristan for knowing what I need right when I need it. You, my friend, have an extraordinary ability to see people for what they can be.
