How long have you been a member of Functional Fitness?

I started training with Functional Fitness in August 2012.

Why do you continue to train with Functional Fitness?

I feel as though Functional Fitness really cares.  There are always new challenges in the exercises.

What have you accomplished since working with Functional Fitness?

I have lost 30 pounds since I began almost a year ago.  I can do push-ups when I never could before.  I also have much more energy which allows me to be more active outside of our workouts.
tell us about your frustrations prior to working with functional fitness.  how has your mindset changed?
I didn’t want to diet at all.  I now am able to view it, not as a diet, but as making better choices.  I have healthier habits incorporated into my routine now as well.

What made you decide to start training?

This might sound dumb, but I liked how a friend of mine looked, so I thought I would give it a try.  Also, I was truly tired of the way I felt.  I have had a few medical issues and I would rather try exercising and living a healthier lifestyle than try more medications.
My entire lifestyle change has helped ease my medical conditions.  Even more than my weight loss, this has been one of the greatest benefits I have experienced since I joined Functional Fitness.

Why have you been successful?

I have to give the coaches at Functional Fitness a lot of credit for my success!  The knowledge, guidance, and positive support of Functional Fitness, my family and friends is huge!

What advice would you give to others looking to lose weight or just live a healthier lifestyle?

Be patient.  It does not happen overnight.  You truly need to stick to it and you will get out what you put in.  When people ask me what I did, I tell them that I worked my butt off and made better food choices.  Give it at least 2 months before you really start to notice your body changing.
