Prior to this point, I would enter a gym, make no eye contact and go to an elliptical machine or treadmill, do my thing and hurry out. It was not a place I felt comfortable in and put me right back in my teenage insecurities. If someone had told me that I would end up at this age waking up at 6am to head to a gym and deadlift 285 pounds I would have doubled over laughing. And yet here I am.
Iron Lion has become such a bright spot in my life. I look forward to seeing everyone there and feel so encouraged (and challenged) to be my healthiest self. All of the coaches take such care to guide and motivate everyone who walks in the door. Iron Lion has helped my confidence grow, leading to positive changes in many areas of my life.
I appreciate you all and thank you, especially when you ignore my whining and force me to succeed.
