Kirstin is a hardest worker in boot camp I have ever seen. She came with the attitude of “nothing is going to stop me..” and NOTHING HAS! I would teach class Wednesday morning, then Wednesday night and there she was, in both classes. Then, the next week, again there she was, both classes and a bunch of other classes during the week. She really has been unstoppable and it shows after losing already 40+ pounds in a few months, she is half way to her goal. She is a member of our 49 day challenge and is totally rockin’ the house right now! Congrats Kirstin on your success..
Here is her story..
Those home exercise videos only go as far as the effort you put in. Working out with a group of people, exercising together, makes you put in more effort. Or at least that is what Bootcamp at Reshape by Patrick has taught me. I started my new weightloss and getting fit journey by trying to find the right balance of food and exercise on my own. I say new, because I am a yo-yo dieter who has tried all the fad diets out there.
Some I was successful at, others made me sick, but the weight always found its way back as I wasn’t able to stick to the plans. This time I was determined to stop feeling miserable about myself and make a change.
I wanted to succeed by changing my eating habits where I could eat fresh foods instead of pre-packaged meals or paying tons of money for soup packets and bars. I did some research and lost about 14 pounds, but it came to a halt. I was very frustrated, as I thought I was doing everything right. So, when I found the opportunity to try out Bootcamp, after some hestiation, I decided to give it a try.
I hesitated because I am very overweight, self consious and worried that I would feel very uncomfortable and be surrounded by these people with perfect in-shape bodies who would stare at me and ask what I was doing there. I had no reason to be hesitant. There is a whole group of wonderful people of all shapes and sizes that are all after the same goal – to be healthy and fit.
The instructors are all terrific and I leave the classes feeling energetic, inspired and proud of myself. Patrick takes the time to speak with you, provide one on one support and instruction and follows up, None of which I ever had when I used to be a member at a local gym. He also provided an eating plan to go along with the exercising, which has been a great guide. If there are questions along the way, I know I can ask Patrick. I am half way to my weightloss goal, having lost 44 pounds so far.
I feel I gain strength, more endurance and most importantly, more self confidence, each time I attend a class. I don’t think I would have been as successful without the Reshape Bootcamp!
