“I’ve learned to make choices and plan. During my stay I was able to accomplish things I never thought possible…running, spinning, sprinting, hiking and much, much more. Had the time of my life! Thanks!!”
Obum came to us at a booming 401 pounds. He was a defensive lineman from the University of Maryland and after graduating he realized he had piled on some weight.
Obum was athletic from day one. Obviously his background taught him that hard work and dedication pay off. In five months he lost 131 pounds and 80.25 inches. He looked like a completely different person.
Obum has kept every pound of his weight loss off and contributes that fact to the hard working trainers and Eric, the owner of LIFE. He says that the staff ‘s personal touch really drove him to be the best version of himself… so sweet! After Obum’s mother passed away, his sister told him that nothing made her happier than seeing him when he back from LIFE. She felt that LIFE gave him a new lease on LIFE.
“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.
