Over the past few months, I have not only seen the pounds fall off, I’m stronger, more confident, and above all, I love and look forward to my workouts.
I took my first class at Shred415 in August 2017. I initially joined to help myself achieve a weight loss goal for my wedding, but little did I know that Shred415 would change my life.
I have never been one to enjoy exercise, so for most of my young adult life, I avoided it entirely. Around the time I turned 25, my metabolism slowed down, and I soon came to the harsh realization that I could no longer eat whatever I desired. Although I came to this realization, breaking old habits proved difficult, and I continued to overindulge. With overindulgence and exercise avoidance, you can guess what happened next, but the truly devastating part of my weight gain was that I transitioned into someone I was ashamed of. The shame even caused me to avoid seeing friends.
The culmination of months of feeling down on myself occurred in November 2016, when I found myself pushing back my engagement photo shoot. This was the wake-up call that I needed. I committed to changing my life for the better. I adjusted my diet, I began to slowly exercise, and I took small steps to induce change. It was time for a big step.
It was time to try Shred415. I signed up for my first class with Sarah Wille, and although I was so intimidated by the workout, she welcomed me and made sure I felt motivated and encouraged. Over the past few months, I have not only seen the pounds fall off (33 pounds down!), I’m stronger, more confident, and above all, I love and look forward to my workouts. The past months at Shred415 have been amazing. I have a routine that I enjoy and a team of awesome instructors encouraging me every step of the way.
In October 2017, I walked down the aisle feeling beautiful and confident. This would not have been possible without the instructors at Shred415 pushing me to levels of intensity that I would have never thought feasible. Even though I’m nearing the end of my weight loss journey, I know my journey with Shred415 has just begun.
