Long before I thought about joining Iron Fit Circuit Training, I had always been a bit skeptical of circuit training, HIIT Classes, or Crossfit. It was a scary thought because I was out of shape and self-conscious about my weight at 296 lbs. Life was sluggish to say the least. Being overweight, I had knee pain, foot pain, back pain, etc. With all of my physical issues, I didn’t think I could keep up with the rest of the class so I just avoided it.
After numerous discussions, a close friend and longtime Iron Fit member finally persuaded me to give it a try. In November of 2015, I went to my first class. I was immediately welcomed into the Iron Fit family by the members and by the owner Erik Guerra. Erik worked with me individually and made sure that my form was correct and that I stayed focused for my entire workout. He made sure that I would feel successful. I continue to feel successful to this day, even with a dramatic increase in the level of my athleticism. Erik continues to push me to higher levels on a daily basis. I am officially addicted to his program. I couldn’t have been as successful without Erik’s support. His tenacity makes me want to come back day in and day out. In these past five months, I have lost a total of 43 pounds. I feel absolutely fantastic! My only regret is that I didn’t join Iron Fit sooner.
