“After giving birth to my second child I was a whopping 220 pounds. I wouldn’t even step foot in the gym till I got down to 200. I’ve never been one for the fitness lifestyle. I have suffered from asthma my whole life. I’ve been apart of ECA since May 2015. I was 200 pounds and 37% body fat. The staff and trainers have pushed me to go bigger, faster, stronger. I’ve learned a lot from some of the nutritional classes, and the gym challenges. Everyone at ECA has taught me a great deal! I’ve been apart of some Zumba classes, fitlab, yoga, and Saturday seminars. Never in my life have I been able to run. I’m now running daily and love it. I never ever thought I’d ride a bike for fun, join 5k’s, walkathons where I will power walk my way instead of sluggishly and slowly making my rounds. I have the energy that I didn’t even have as a teenager. I’m a mom of two kids. I find time for me because that makes me a better wife and mother. Balance. I’ve learned balance through this journey. It’s not about the numbers for me. It’s about the way I feel. I feel strong, healthy, and confident. I thank ECA for all this. They’re amazing and I am thankful they are apart of my daily life.”
