I Discovered an Inner Strength I Didn’t Know I Had!
When I began my Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping experience, I was not expecting it to completely change my life in the way that it did. My transformation story is about gaining strength, both inside and out.
Last summer, I had just gotten out of an abusive marriage and ended up moving to Colorado Springs where I didn’t know anyone. I was going through an incredibly difficult time in my life, and my entire family and support system were a thousand miles away. I had severe depression, was incredibly shy, and lacked confidence. I knew something needed to change in order for me to put my life back together and be the best mom that I could be for my two little girls.
Farrell’s in Colorado Springs at Championship View came into my life exactly when I needed them. I almost talked myself out of going that first day, being too scared and shy to take that first step inside the door. I’m so thankful now that my family encouraged me to just give it a try. I started with the free week, and I was hooked! The instructors and coaches were absolutely wonderful at making newcomers feel welcome, and they definitely kept me motivated during the next 10-week session. The workouts were challenging, but the instructors had a way of making them fun while pushing me to Level 10 every time!
Along with the awesome instructors, the other people in my 9 a.m. class played a huge role in my success. Everyone there always has a positive attitude and encourages one another. Going to Farrell’s started to become one of the best parts of my day, and it was something I looked forward to every morning. My friends in class were (and still are) like family to me and became the support system that I needed.
As I went through my 10 weeks, I was feeling physically stronger, healthier, and happier than ever before. Not only did I gain physical strength, but I also discovered an inner strength that I didn’t know I had. I gained confidence and self-esteem, and I finally felt like I could take on anything that life threw at me.
Since those first 10 weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to become a coach and an instructor myself. It’s amazing to be able to pay it forward and motivate, teach, and inspire others to reach their goals. Last summer, I would have never believed that in six months, I’d be the one leading class!
I’m a domestic violence survivor, but it took going to Farrell’s to show me how strong I truly am. The most important thing of all is that I’m teaching my daughters how to be strong, confident, independent women when they grow up, thanks to Farrell’s!
