What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
I started this journey in 2020. I went through a separation and divorce. I started with therapy, and once I felt like my mind was ready, I started working out.
I joined a workout class from GymBully Fitness. I won the workout class membership for 30 days. Then I decided to walk for 30 days. Once I did that, I got a personal trainer at Gym Bully. I started working with her on May 12th and haven’t stopped yet.
