Today this absolutely amazing woman reached her goal!!! Heather has lost 85 lbs and 84.75” but has gained so much more in the long run!! I remember Heathers first day so clear!! She worked so hard and left in tears. So concerned she couldn’t do it but I kept telling her …your 1st bootcamp is the hardest. Each day you walk through those doors you get stronger. And in 10 months and 1 week she has reached her goal!! Heather is the definition of determination and perseverance! Along the road she would have so many reasons she couldn’t but she didn’t ever stop! Everyday she showed up and worked hard…even when her hip was bothering her so much!! Heather it has been an absolute honor to walk this journey with you!! Look at that smile when she saw she reached it!! Beaming! Thank you for trusting me. Here is her story… it’s a must read!
January 7, 2019 I walked into RevFit thinking this was my last resort. If I don’t do it this time, I won’t ever get it done. I’ve tried and failed, failed and tried, and tried again but nothing seemed to work. But, when I walked into the gym that day, I felt at peace because the people were so welcoming and they didn’t even know me. I signed up for bootcamp, not knowing what I was getting myself into. I just knew I needed help and I needed it fast. I was depressed and stressed and felt as if I was at the end of my rope. My first bootcamp experience was filled with lots of anxiety because I saw others at their best, but I was at my worse. Not realizing they had traveled down the same road to get where I am today. All I could see was that I couldn’t keep up, I couldn’t run around the parking lot, I caused everyone to have to work harder because they’d always have to come back to get me (NO ONE AT REVFIT GETS LEFT BEHIND!!!!) but I never gave up! I kept showing up and I started seeing results! My scale started moving in the right direction, I started getting stronger, and I began to gain confidence!
My trainer, Sandra, gave me the tools I needed to be successful, but it was up to me to stay disciplined and focused on my goals!!! She provided the support and encouragement that I needed to make it this far!!!! I can’t thank her enough for investing in me!!!! When I wanted to give up and throw in the towel because I didn’t think my goal was attainable, she pushed me even harder because she saw in me something that I didn’t see in myself!
My bootcamp Sisters are the best!!!! We push each other to go harder and we get stronger together!!!!!
Never in my life did I think I’d be able to run, buuuuttt I ran my 1st 5k in September and Sandra was by my side every step of the way!!!!! She even picked up another “bootcamper” along the race route because her trainer had left her behind! I assured her that she could finish the race with us because My Trainer would NEVER leave me to finish the race alone!!! I am also now a part of a wonderful running group at the gym, Level Up Sistas, and our group is awesome!!! Every woman in our group is so encouraging and supportive and always there whenever anyone of us is in need!!!
Crystal and Apphia came toward the latter part of my journey and provided tough love and much needed encouragement to get me over that hump that felt like a mountain in my journey and I am ever so grateful for them!
Since joining the gym, I have become the role model that my girls needed to see that they too can live a healthy and fit lifestyle! They are now members of the RevFit family and progressing toward the goals they have set for themselves.
I can’t thank all of those that have helped me to get to GOAL enough!
Since joining RevFit, I have gained an extended family and made friendships that will last a lifetime!
