I am a 45 year old female. I have been at True Strength Gym for 3 years now and I can honestly say that I am in the best shape of my life. I have lost body fat, and increased lean muscle mass. I am more comfortable in my body now than I ever have been. Like many moms, my kids were my life. I spent all of my evenings running them to and from practice, helping with homework and getting dinner on the table. I had a hard time finding time for myself. With my youngest driving, I finally decided to take time for myself and find a gym and start taking care of myself. I walked in and wasn’t sure if it was for me. It was all different equipment I had never seen before and had no idea how to use it. I signed up at another gym for a year, so I could have a more affordable “family” membership. My family basically never went and I saw absolutely no results. I went back even before my other membership was expired and signed up for group training with Jonathan with the intent I would only do training for about 3 months until I learned how to use this weird looking equipment and then I’d train on my own. That never happened. I continue to train with Jonathan 3 days a week and go in on my own on the weekends. Training with Jonathan has been the best thing I ever did for myself. He pushes you in a way that makes you do things you don’t think are possible. For three hours a week I am pushed beyond my limits and I leave feeling stronger and more confident than when I walked in. We are all on different journeys, we are there for different reasons, but everyone at True Strength is supportive of one another and there is no judging. In class, we may all do the same exercise, or not, or it may be modified. It is individualized on what you need. The exercises are almost always working multiple muscle groups at once, making the most out of the workout. It may be “arm” day, but why are my legs exhausted?! The core machine is amazing. Rainbows work abs, back, chest, shoulders, forearms, and more. You can do squats, with squat presses, curls, back rows and again, even more. People ask me all the time what kind of workout I do. It’s hard to explain. Is it crossfit…no. Is it lifting..yes…kind of. I just tell people it is strength training. We are training to be strong. To understand, you have to see it for yourself.
