“How do you sum up 9 months of blood, sweat and tears? If I could go back in time nine months and tell the old me what I’m like now, I never would have believed it. I was so sad, isolating myself, afraid to confront some serious and scary issues, and as a result I was eating and drinking myself into a place where I mistakingly thought I was safe and no one could see me. That was 113lbs ago! I have transformed into this amazing person, full of life, and vitality, the care of the therapist, amazing trainers, wonderful nutritionist and having the most amazing coach by my side every step of the way have been instrumental in this life saving change I’ve made. They’re family to me now. I have made life long friends here, healthy supportive and truly safe relationships. I’m surprised at the strength and courage that was buried under all that baggage, and weight. I have become so strong mentally and physically. The 9 months of showing up to the gym and doing the hard work despite my fears and insecurities, is something I am so proud of. Other people tell me I’m an inspirations to them! Me? The girl who locked herself away eating and drinking, feeling hopeless and now others are inspired by me! I’m going to say it again. I am really proud of myself and I’m extremely grateful. The combination of this supportive group of amazing people at Live in Fitness Enterprise, and my decision to show up for myself has saved my life.” -Marcelle
As she expressed on her testimonial, Melissa came to LIF terrified and scared didn’t think she was going to accomplish her goal. But soon Melissa found a family among her trainers, teachers and classmates. Today, after loosing more than 195 pounds she doesn’t recognize the woman who she was before coming to the program ” I feel like a complete different person” she says. “Today I feel confident, strong, I feel I can do anything. I was working out next to a guy who came with a cane and could barely walk and on the other side to me was a professional baseball player” A life time transformative experience.
“I had chronic health problems that required possibly living for the rest of my life on drugs. Then I searched for a total immersion fitness program and found L.I.F.E. At first, it was extremely challenging and they pushed me to achieve my physical potential beyond what I thought was possible. Their progressive approach to determining my goals and measuring my progress on a weekly basis helped me push beyond my expectations. Their nutrition education taught me how to eat right. The best part about i is that my illness indicators have all fallen back into the normal range of a healthy person. My doctor said, ”Whatever you‛re doing, keep doing it.” He was amazed at the changes, and I don‛t have to go back to those nasty drugs!” – Bess Vrataccos
