Hello my name is Alissa H. This is my life this is my journey. Ever since I became a mother of two beautiful daughters, I have struggled with my weight. The idea of being 118 again has quickly faded. The scale was once a true enemy who controlled my mood and happiness.
For the last 15 years, I have tried to be active and fit! However, looking back on my attempts I realized they were without guidance and direction. Hiring trainers, many gym membership with no true results. Yes, I would lose weight but yo-yo back and forth.
Then I met Erik G. owner and operator of Iron Fit Circuit Training. I joined in November. He does not know this but I once tried to join over a year ago. I came to IF and no one was there. I am disappointed in myself that I did not go back. I can’t imagine how I could have transformed if I would have been more persistent over a year ago. However, I am on the right track now.
Since joining Iron Fit I have lost 10 pounds, numerous of inches and gained much strength and satisfaction. Ten pounds may not sound like a lot but it has been several years since I was able to lose this much weight. One or two pounds was all that would fall off. For the first two months prior to class, I would have anxiety of the unknown. Afraid of what challenges Erik was going to put before us! Will I throw up today? Will I be able to finish today? Will I look weak? All of these thoughts would take over my mind and then the voice would say. “Don’t go!” I would ignore that familiar voice you know that voice we all know that voice and face the new challenges that would come.
Erik assured me everything was going to be just fine and that I would go at my own pace and rest when I needed to. He made me feel very comfortable, he eased me into the workouts, he taught me proper form, and now I can do exercises and workouts I never thought I would be able to do and finish. It feels empowering to face fears and overcome the unknown!
Erik has been the only trainer that I have met that truly cares about our health and fitness. He has taught me that it’s not about the scale. It is about how you look and feel. Through his guidance I have finally started to learn how truly important your diet is. Everything in moderation. We eat to live. Not live to eat!
I am thrilled to be a part of an amazing fitness program! I have never experience anything as positive as this program. Iron Fit is the Perfect Combination of Strength Training and Cardio! I have witness my Co Iron Fitters transform right before my eyes. It is a Blessing to be a part of something truly magical about being fit! I am amazed by the transformation of my body and want to see where I can take it all with the guidance of Erik. Looking forward to what the future holds! This is my life, this is my journey!
