We love to highlight the success of our members! We asked several members what helped them make the decision to join a gym. Keep reading to learn about Kelly’s fitness journey.
Why did you decide to join Peak Performance? What was your “A-ha!” moment?
Throughout my life I have struggled to feel comfortable in my skin. I’ve dealt with confidence and self esteem issues, and have consistently tried to change and better myself to live a happier and healthier life. Through this process, I had been a member of 4 gyms before I found Peak. Each time I would join a gym, I would start off totally motivated and would go every day consistently for a couple weeks, and then slowly but surely I would fade back into old habits and lose my motivation; I’m sure most people who have tried more than once to lose weight know exactly how that feels. Each time I canceled a membership I would be disappointed in myself and discouraged that I would never lose the weight and achieve my goals. When I found Peak Performance, I was scared that the same thing was going to happen, but I could tell this place was different. There weren’t any “juice heads” or people that cause “gymtimidation.” I felt comfortable and welcome, even on my first day.
What made you decide to continue at Peak?
When I first started working with my trainer Louise, I quickly realized how she wasn’t just working through her shift and doing her job, she genuinely cared about my progress and health. She pushed and continues to push me hard and I am constantly breaking through my own personal boundaries and conquering things I never thought I would ever attempt. Having someone invested in your journey makes it that much easier to succeed. After a period of time, I realized that I had been an active member of a gym for longer than I ever had in the past, and that victory alone motivated me to keep going. I’ve now been with Louise and Peak for a little over a year and have lost a considerable amount of weight, but more importantly I have gained my health, self confidence and self esteem. I am in the best place I have ever been and I owe it all to Peak!
