People ask “How are the contestants doing?” The answer is always the same. Wonderful
These women are dedicated to making a change in their lives. In the gym they work very hard physically and even harder mentally outside of these walls. The hard part is when no one else is watching and your left only with yourself to answer to. You tell yourself that you will only have one cookie or I will be strict with my diet tomorrow or I will do extra sit ups…..anything to make yourself feel better and justify doing something you know you shouldn’t be. What these women are also learning is that they are accountable to themselves, and worth it.
To me it is very sad to see someone who doesn’t think they are worth the effort, or what difference would it make if they tried or even worse to scared of failing to try. It is easy to make fun of someone for being over weight or not as smart as the next person or…. Did you ever wonder if you could make a difference in that person’s life? Instead of belittling them, encourage them, help them, show them how, teach them. The feeling I get from helping these women and the gym making a difference in all my member’s lives is priceless.
I had a woman tell me she felt pretty for the first time in a long time when she went out to dinner with her husband. Another has never been to a gym because she always felt intimidated, but feels totally comfortable here. Many have said how much they love being here with women and making new friends…..My oldest member is 78 and she is awesome.
“My girls” are doing very well in this contest, but they aren’t doing anything different than anyone else who wants to make a difference in their life, all you have to do is take the first step and walk through the front door. We’ll take it from there and be right by your side.
I would love to be able to tell every woman personally that they are able to make a difference in their own life. These seven women are the first of many. I like them never want it to end.
