Alloy Client of the Month: I Couldn’t Do This By Myself

I have to thank everyone at Alloy Personal Training Center, for “altering my birthday suit.” Thank you for greeting me and giving me the encouragement I needed when you honestly said “we are in business because of people like you.”

In the beginning, I thought I was just going to go into the gym and shed the extra pounds. Well, I tried for a few months but I was really playing the system. I didn’t commit until I got the news that my very close cousin had Type-2 Diabetes and was losing her sight. I was determined to prevent this from happening to me. I went to my doctor for my annual physical and I was declared to have pre-diabetes. The doctor gave me several instructions for a strict diet then sent me home to return in six months. What was I to do?

My turning point was when I realized that I could not do this by myself. Alloy helped me by building an individualized workable plan for my eating habits. Now that I had a new way of eating in place, I needed the proper and most effective form of exercises. I had an exercise plan designed for me and appointments made for me. Now it was up to me to follow and be accountable!

I realize exercise and proper eating habits go hand in hand. It is a lifestyle – not just something you can do here and there. Some days it’s hard for me to get to Alloy, but once I get through that door and swipe my card, my whole attitude changes instantly. I can honestly say that I have restored my energy level and my pre-diabetes condition is under control.

All of the coaches have contributed to my weight loss, for which I am amazingly grateful. The Alloy team keeps a watchful eye to make sure I’m on task, as well as doing the exercises correctly. I could not have done this without their kindness, interest and patience; I thank them all from the bottom of heart.

Rebecca Boothroyd – February Client of the Month

A year ago, I saw a friend’s post on Facebook – it was her “before and after” pictures and her story. It wasn’t that I related to her story as much as I wanted a story of my own.

This friend mentioned that she was now a trainer at Higher Power Fitness, and was teaching small group training at her church one day a week. So, I signed up for that one day a week session. Something in that session started a fire in me – I loved the way I felt and I loved how my body responded.

Within the first couple of months, I lost 30 pounds and 15+ inches. I did my very first 5k and wanted to do more.

Fast forward a few months, and I signed up for Higher Power Fitness, where she trains. I had never signed  up for a gym before, and I didn’t know what to expect. I instantly felt welcomed and loved going. I started with Foundations sessions and have worked my way up to doing Industrial Strength and Afterburn.

I never thought I would be the type of person who looked forward to working out. Yet here I am, loving it!

Sugary treats

If you were a superhero who would it be & why?

Your secret to success?
