I met Josh in March, 2005, on my second visit to Lifestyle Family Fitness. I had never been a member of a gym before, and was intimidated by the equipment and the thought of walking in that door. The trip up the flight of stairs to the trainer's office that day left me out of breath, and I was sure this would never work for me.
Josh asked me what my goals were and I told him that I wanted to lose weight and gain muscle tone. He gave me guidance, encouragement and direction, helping me with each step along the way, and showed me the life style changes that were necessary to achieve my goals.
Now, 2 1/2 years later, I am 70 pounds lighter and infinitely stronger. My health has greatly improved, and my doctor couldn't be happier. The road has not always been smooth. There have been times when I've wanted to give up, but Josh would 't give up on me. He's even gone so far as to come to my house at 5am to get me and
take me to the gym on days when I didn't think I could do it any more.
He has run with me in two 5K races, keeping my pace and encouraging me with every step. With his help, I have accomplished goals that I thought were unattainable in the past. My journey is not yet complete, but I am confident that together Josh and I will continue on this path always moving forward.
