My friend suggested that I try out True Strength Gym and I’m so glad I did. I had been doing crossfit/bootcamp style workouts for a year and I was finding that while I had been losing weight, I was always hurt.
I was pretty skeptical when I walked in to True Strength. I didn’t recognize any of the equipment and I didn’t see how all of it was going to make me strong or help me to continue losing weight. I told Jonathan about my knee problems that I had been having and he devised a plan to start rehabbing my knee and making it stronger. I had never had a trainer take the time to do something like that. I was always told to just push through it. I now walk without a limp!!
Since starting in January 2014, I have dropped 25 lbs of body fat, gained 10 lbs of muscle and my body fat percentage has dropped by 10%. I have gone from being a size 20 to a size 14. My strength has increased exponentially. I push sleds. I bench press. I can even do a one-armed snatch with a 50 lb dumbbell!
And let me tell you about the people there. They are amazing! We are all there for the same reason and that is to become better versions of ourselves. We support each other. We push each other. We cheer each other on. We celebrate accomplishments together. We are a family.
Bottom line is, if you are looking to lose weight, get strong or both, True Strength is the place to be. The workouts are amazing and so are the people. Check it out. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
