Our team name for this six-week bootcamp was Transformers. The inspiration behind this name is the Scripture which states, “be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Romans 12:2)
I truly feel that Brandon and Habitat Fitness were instruments to help me do this. Habitat helped me renew my mind from thinking, “I could never do that!” to “I’ll try it!” to “I CAN do it!” to “I can do more!” I changed from thinking of every excuse in the book why I couldn’t lose weight, to making a commitment and sticking to it, and seeing results (12.5 pounds, 2.9% body fat and 7.75″ lost)!
I am no longer worried about my next doctor’s appointment, but rather excited to show her my transformation, which includes a normal blood pressure! (She gave me 3 months to lose weight or be put on high blood pressure meds.) Today I measured 121/79!
When the alarm clock would ring each morning at 5:25, I actually became excited to get out of bed, and get to Habitat, where I’d meet new and old friends, all ready to go! Brandon quickly became one of these friends. His workouts are very challenging, but he consistently showed modifications for lower fitness levels (like me sometimes!), or health concerns.
Brandon is very encouraging, always using positive motivation, and bringing out the best in me. He is very knowledgeable about both exercise and nutrition, and willing to answer my many questions (thanks, Brandon, for your patience!) One of my favorite moments was when I did the box jumps — had to conquer my fear, and did!
I also enjoyed seeing my fitness progression when we did a workout again at the end of the 6 weeks which we had recorded during the first week. I went from 8 rounds to over 13! What a sense of accomplishment!
I am truly grateful that I was able to complete the six-week bootcamp at Habitat Fitness, and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to become stronger, healthier, or more focused. Thank you for a great experience! I’m still in the transformation process, but my renewed thinking is heading me in the right direction!
