"In January 2019 I realized my weight had ballooned to its heaviest. I was even bigger than I had been when I was pregnant with three kids. I am on 4'11 so being a size 14 was the biggest I had ever been. The size 14 was now tight and all my clothes were very uncomfortable. Nothing felt like it should. I had some money that I could use for a cruise. I decided that my health was more important. So I decided I would take the money and get a personal trainer for a few months. On Facebook there was an ad for STRENGTH CRAZE. Since it was less then 5 minutes from my home I decided to check it out. I spoke with Barry who explained what they could accomplish in 25 visits to the gym. He gave me a meal plan . He listened to my issues with food. No judgement and gave me a meal plan that I could easily follow. Melissa said something to me when I spoke with her about my food issue. She said the past is the past and I could make the future different. It was up to me. No one had ever said that to me before. It got me thinking and I realized I could and should get over it.
Barry and Melissa are encouraging and positive. I must ask Melissa the same question more times then i could count. Melissa just says I could ask a billion times and she would answer them.
I look forward to my visits to Strength Craze Gym 3 times a week. I never think "oh no, gym again". Melissa pushes me but is very positive about it. She has a great sense of humour.
Since joining Strength Craze my physical and mental health have improved greatly. I can really see and feel the difference from a tight 14 to a loose 12 in 6 weeks. After 3 weeks had built almost a pound of muscle. Looking forward to the end result in 9 more session. Going to Strength Craze was the best decision I had made for my health. Couldn't have done it without the the encouragement and positivity of Melissa and Barry. Thanks guys!
