My story starts 12 years ago after having cancer surgery and deciding that I wanted to be a happier, healthier person. I weighed 260 lbs and am 5’5” tall. I was 47 years old and very unhappy with myself. Four months after my operation I decided that I didn’t want to be fat anymore so I joined Weight Watchers and met a woman that would change my life, Trish.
She taught me that to lose weight it just wasn’t changing my eating habits but getting more active. So I joined a women’s workout gym and started to walk. I did this for quite a while then started jogging, first 2 miles then working my way up to 5 miles.
But the bad thing was in all these years my body stayed the same. I would jog 3, 4 even 5 times a week and nothing was happening. I was ready to give up, in fact I was only going out a couple of times a week. Then I started to talk to one of my WW ladies about her success and what she was doing, she told me about Gordon Studios and especially about Catherine Gordon. I went in for a Zumba class but soon found out about TT, I was hooked.
I started to really get serious about my TT about 6 months ago. I love that each class is different. Some nights Home Workout Revolution, or maybe its TT Metabolic Monster, other nights I love it when we do TT for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks. Its always different and NEVER gets boring. It may sound crazy but the class of 1000 reps is one of my favorites, because when we get done I feel like I have climbed a mountain.
If you had asked me 12 years ago this is where I would be right now I would have laughed. I am so blessed to have TT and Catherine in my life, and its not just for now but this is forever.
