Before Heavyweights I was your typical athlete.
Soccer player, track athlete, pretty much any offer to play a sport I was there ready to go!
Then I found excuses. I stopped going to practice, stopped trying out for teams saying was “too busy”. I gave up what I loved most for what? Apparently it was all for an extra 40 lbs on my mid section. Then one day I said F this and joined Heavyweights!
Best decision ever.
Brought my best friend (who is also a heavyweights superstar!) and we worked our butts off. We met a lot of like minded people. People who didn’t come here to half ass it, rather came to get their ass handed to them. Which was a breathe of fresh air. I went a different route with my goals, I wasn’t bothered by the number on the scale I was bothered by the number on the bar! I just kept pushing myself to lift heavy and sweat my ass off and the rest just fell in place! It also help have a coach look at you and say “go get something heavier, that is way to light”.
Heavyweight reminded me why I was an athlete in the first place.
They gave me back the best feeling in the world, which to me in being my best and beating it!
My transformation is still in progress I have blown my goals out of the water and they keep getting higher and higher!
If I can inspire one other person to not give up, and not worry about the scale then I will have reached another goal of my mine, which is to work so hard with my own training and have a person say “because of you I didn’t give up”. Don’t give up and when you are in a slump get you gym partner and go anyways you won’t regret it!
Thanks everyone for being so awesome you inspire me everyday when you add that extra 5 lbs on you pb!
So THANK YOU!
