I joined Body Rock in July of 2016.

My short term goals are to be “wedding ready” for my big day in November. My long term goals are to grow muscle and lean out. I would love to build my shoulders and booty, because who doesn’t want a nice booty? I just want to maintain healthy eating habits and a 5-6 day a week workout regimen.

My fitness journey since I have joined Body Rock has been challenging to say the least. I started with just doing classes as many time as possible and now I train two days a week with Tina along with getting to classes when my schedule allows. I have had trouble in the getting to classes due to my crazy schedule but now I block time of for the classes that I love because I take as my “me time.’ I also had a hard time with the intimidation factor when I first started. Walking into a gym where everyone knows each other and you are the new kid was scary. But luckily, everyone was so welcoming that I felt comfortable right away.

As of right now my wedding is my motivation. I really just want to feel my best that day and during all of the other events that will be happening. Long term, my progress is what inspires and pushes me when I want to stop. Every week I notice new muscle or new strength and its such an awesome feeling knowing that your hard work pays off.

Body Rock has become a second family for me. Tina especially has been a huge part of me reaching my goals. Every class and every training session she pushes me so hard. When I want to drop that weight, she says just the right thing to make me keep going. Every instructor at Body Rock pushes you and makes sure you get the most out of your workout. On the days when I don’t want to get to class, I think about all of the people I won’t get to see and workout with that day. It is more than just a workout for me, it’s also time for me to see some people that make my week light up. I really don’t know where I would be without this place.

Do it! I am always telling my friends and family to join. If you are intimidated or feel like you aren’t in enough shape to join, get that out of your head. Body Rock is filled with people of all different shapes and sizes and all different fitness levels. We are a family and we push each other. I can’t tell you how many times I have has people cheer me on in class when they can see that I want to give up. We will always push and help each other. Stop second guessing it and just do it.
