In late 2016 I celebrated a milestone birthday facing a career transition, a newly empty nest and moving an elderly parent out of his home and into a senior apartment. All of these changes conspired to turn my 15 pound "corporate stress" weight gain into 30. My milestone birthday trip to Hawaii was great, but I did not feel my best or my normal, high energy self. Then, in the spring of 2017, I saw a Facebook post for FGNW. I was nervous, but Jen immediately put me at ease. She helped me every step of the way both by encouraging me when I was "slacking" and celebrating every success. Her philosophy and outlook means that like-minded women sign up as well. So not only did I get a great trainer, but I have had the opportunity meet a wonderful, diverse group of women who bring out the best in each other. On top of that, those 30 pounds are gone, and I will happily be going sleeveless this holiday season to show off my toned arms!
You have nothing to lose (but those unwanted pounds and your internal "critic" that says you can't do it).
I have always been an "on again, off again" when it came to exercising. With this mentality I feel like I never reached my fitness and weight loss goals, but now I am working toward them! I ran into a FGNW post on Facebook and I reached out to Jen. Since day 1 she has motivated me, pushed me, and guided me throughout this fitness journey. I love the environment that the gym brings, it is a positive space where all of the women push each other to do better each class. FGNW has brought body positivity into my life!
