At first I just wanted to improve my health. I wasn't really taking good care of myself, I was stressed, anxious and depressed, which affected my eating. My doctor told me I needed to put on weight, so I decided to get healthy at the same time. In 2010 I started training at Doherty's Gym City once a week, and there I met my first trainer who also happened to be the owner of the gym! He trained me once a week and showed me how to use the free weights and machines. I realized the results I was getting in the gym were not only physical, but also mental and emotional. I was getting healthy again, I looked great, but above all else my depression, anxiety and stress levels were minimized, and I really feel I had grown as a person. I have so much more self confidence now and just feel so happy and healthy all the time! He had lit a spark in me and I found my true passion ;) The gym completely turned my life around! My whole outlook had changed... I'd go as far as saying it saved my life! I'm also a vegan ;)
Why I Love it
It makes me feel great - I love the results, physically, mentally and emotionally. I always feel like I have something to work towards that is positive and I'm always so excited and motivated to train!
