Warrior of the Month – Colleen Pelkey Story

As a human resources communications specialist and trained mind/body fitness professional, I relocated from “the tundra” of Minnesota to sunny Jacksonville, Florida.  I knew no one and, like many working Americans, I put my job before my health.  Though I knew what I should do, I couldn’t do it alone.  I read Tom Corley’s book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life, and knew I needed a habitual fitness routine that included weight lifting (which was new to me). Plus, I needed support from a positive mindset and surrounding myself with inspirational people.

After searching countless gyms in the area, I finally found a home.  I was scrolling through my Facebook page when an ad for Training For Warriors appeared.  I responded to the ad and Coach Phil invited me in the following Monday for an 8 Week Transformation orientation.  Because of my background in fitness, I was embarrassed about my weight and fitness level.  I felt I should have been able to do it alone, and stay fit without the support of a group, but it was impossible.  Now I am so glad that I couldn’t do it alone because I have met so many wonderful people and am part of a very special group, unlike any other organization I have been a part of.

I suffered from “21st Century Disorder”. Sugar addiction, sleep issues, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, hormonal issues, anxiety, and joint pain. ALL these issues are COMPLETELY RESOLVED because of TFW.  A big part of my success came from the synergy created by the entire coaching staff at TFW.  TFW offers a complete holistic approach to physical fitness, one that embodies complete change in Mind, Body, and Spirit.

Colleen suffered from sugar addiction, sleep issues, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, hormonal issues, anxiety, and joint pain. But with the hard work and consistency of TFW she was able to resolve ALL these issues within 5 months at TFW.

The Coaches enabled me to integrate routines and habits that are now unconscious and support health, so I can the best version of myself on ALL levels (health, career, family, community) spiritual, mental physical) without it feeling like an effort.  It is PURE JOY.  LIFE IS PURE JOY.

Since beginning TFW I have dropped from 140 lbs. to 120 lbs in 5 months, have lost 5 inches in my waist, dropped 16% body fat, and increased my physical strength and mental fortitude dramatically.

I succeeded because I showed up.  I showed up because of the positive coaches and friends supporting and encouraging me and their model of success, and the daily noticeable positive results after working out, eating right and practicing yoga.

I have never been more happy, healthy or fulfilled.  All thanks to Coach Phil and Erika for manifesting their dreams by creating Training for Warriors in PVB. What Coach Phil and Erika have created out of their faith and dreams is miraculous and it inspires ALL of us to bring out the Warrior within, so they can share their gifts to change the world around them.  A huge never-ending ripple effect is created.  FAMILIA FOREVER!  My gratitude goes out to all the Coaches at TFW and my Familia who have been with me every step of the way.

What’s your dream?  “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it.  The time will pass away.”  Earl Nightingale.  What will you be left with when time passes away?  Join Ponte Vedra Beach TFW and find out!  Your best self, best life, and best friends are waiting for you!
