Today is a HUGE milestone for me – I am proudly celebrating my one year anniversary of joining TFW- Training for Warriors Doylestown.
I started my year with a 30 Day Kickstarter membership – I went in thinking, I’ll give it 30 days, if I don’t like, I walk away… no harm done.
June 21, 2016 (the first 5:30AM TFW class I attended)
That class showed me that I was WAY out of shape and that I physically needed to make a healthier change.
Yes, it was CHALLENGING but something MOTIVATED me to want more.
I walked out of the Dojo looking forward to coming back. In all my years of trying different gyms and diets, no program had ever GRABBED ME LIKE THAT IN 1 DAY!
Through my 30 day Kickstarter membership I tried to attend class as much as possible. In that month I met so many amazing, inspiring people – from the coaches to my TFW classmates – everyone was there to support each other and cheer on everyone’s achievements.
At the end of the thirty days, I couldn’t give it up, I signed on for a year of unlimited classes, with the thought that if my schedule got to be too hard (mom/wife/teacher) that I would cut back the number of classes… but 365 days later, my commitment to TFW & myself has won out!
YES – it was hard to wake up early in the pitch black cold winter months,
YES – it was hard to leave my son and hubby after working all day to go to class
BUT I needed to make time for ME, something I had never done before! In the 12 months that I have been with TFW my physical appearance has changed (down 25+ inches), I’m a more outgoing, happier mom, wife, & teacher, I can lift more & sprint faster than I could months ago, and I have made a ton of friends/cheerleaders that I look forward to seeing at the Dojo 5-6 days a week.
I cannot thank Coach Mike & Coach Kirt enough for motivating, inspiring, & pushing me to work harder, lift more, sprint faster, and try new things. This has been an amazing year and I cannot wait to see what the next year of TFW brings
