In early 2021, I met my best friend for coffee and she told me she had joined a fitness studio called Shred415. She told me it was different from other group fitness classes that she had tried; the room was dark, the music was loud and all fitness levels were welcome. She knew this would interest me as I was very self-conscious at the time. My first Shred415 class was the next morning on Wednesday, March 19th, 2021. I joined as an Ultimate Shredder immediately after class.Describing the studio as “different” was just spot on. I felt comfortable. For the first time in a long time, weight loss seemed achievable. The staff at Shred415 Peabody Place engaged with me and made me feel like more than a client. There were people working out next to me who had different reasons for being there. Classes at Shred415 became a daily routine for me and the best part of my day. In one year I went through many life changes that were good and bad, but Shred415 was my constant through it all. By my 100th class, I had lost 30lbs and had gained a new sense of self-confidence. Now at 200 classes and counting, I still feel the same adrenaline rush and endorphin release that I felt in my very first class. I see so many new clients who are taking their first class, and just knowing that feeling of thinking “this is the place.” It’s incredible seeing clients having the same experience that I had. From weight loss to muscle gain, Shred415 covers it all – and empowers you to feel like the best version of yourself. I was not only able to lose weight and become stronger physically, but I also saw a change in my mindset and I became stronger mentally. Shred415 helped me change for the better!
