I began my fitness journey with Be Strong on June 5, 2017. A little background about me, I am 48 years old and have NEVER really worked out in my life. I was one of those people who wanted to look and feel good, but instead of doing something about it, I would just make excuses. FEAR is VERY powerful in the mind of someone who has no self-esteem. It took a lot of courage for me to even walk through the doors of Be Strong. I was scared and intimidated on that first day, but from the first moment I stepped foot in the Be Strong gym, I felt accepted.

My first week was rough but in reality it was the BEST week of my LIFE for the simple fact that I finally did something for me! Drew and his entire staff are amazing people. I am learning that I have a choice every single day to live each day and every moment for what it is. It doesn’t matter what other people say, or do, or even what they can do that you cannot; it’s about learning to love who you are right now! Your battle is not with someone else, it is about “mind over matter.” I am just beginning my journey with Be Strong and I wish I would have started a long time ago!

I DO matter! I CAN do this! I AM worth it! “Do the work and the results will follow,” Drew said and he is absolutely right. Down 20 pounds, gaining self-confidence. Thanks Drew and all of the Be Strong coaches and Be Strong family for showing me the way to an awesome life! Love you all!
