“Although it may be easy to see that your ACTIONS have consequences, don’t forget your INACTIONS may have even more.” – Martin Rooney
Just after New Years 2020, I started thinking about my health and the way I looked and felt…overweight and frustrated with my wardrobe—nothing fit anymore. I wanted to start a fitness regime but I didn’t know where to go or what to do, so I just started walking.
Unable to stay motivated I went to social media for advice. I asked for opinions on fitness venues between TFW and “another local place”. The answers were mostly unanimous for TFW and one person even tagged Phil Squatrito to get in touch with me. Phil and I met, talked about me and my goals, talked about what to expect. I stepped on the InBody (eek!) and he gave me a trial period.
I arrived at my first class as a bundle of nerves. I finally got the nerve to get out of the car and go in, but I did not know a soul so I turned around and walked out. Phil saw me and bolted out the door and stopped me asking me where I was going. I went back in and actually really enjoyed myself. “Don’t let the start stop you”.
I found my place in the 6:30 pm class and consistently showed up every single week, 4-5 days a week. The more I showed up, the better I got, the better I felt, and the more success I saw. My clothes were fitting better, and I was simply just happier. My first weigh-in at 3 months resulted in 28 pounds down! Yay me! I was so nervous about doing different classes with the different coaches, but was quick to realize I was nervous for nothing. All the coaches are so caring, supportive, and top-notch. The camaraderie throughout the dojo is like nothing else. Everyone cares, everyone helps, everyone supports everyone. In the seven months that I have been with TFWPVB I have learned so much….fitness and proper techniques, nutrition, the importance of water, and the importance of sleep (I still struggle with that one).
The more I go, the more positive results I see, and the more motivated I am to reach my goals. Reaching my goals is not instantaneous…it is a process that takes time, and I am in for the long haul. I am seven months in with a total weight loss of 32 pounds, 6.9% body fat loss, 1.6 pounds of muscle mass gain. Overall, joining TFWPVB was the best decision ever and I feel great!
