When I started at CFE I wore a snug size 18, and was at my wits end when it came to my weight. After two knee surgeries I was convinced that I could not do many of the exercises because of pain, muscle memory loss, and fear of re-injuring myself. I tried many different workout programs, but I could not stick to any of them, primarily because none of them showed me the results I needed to see to keep me motivated. I arrived on day one, and found both Adam and Mark to be very knowledgeable and willing to work with my physical limitations. Once more, it was immediately obvious that CFE is not your typical gym. It is a community of friends that care about each other’s progress and push each other to meet their goals. In no time at all, I noticed my body was changing physically, and my attitude was changing mentally. The coaches at CFE have provided excellent guidance on my journey to a better me. In less than six months later I was down three full pant sizes, stronger than I had ever been, doing exercises that I once thought impossible, and no longer insulin resistant. Every day at the box is a new benchmark, PR, or hurdle to get over, and I continue to amaze myself. My self-esteem is up, and I continue to push myself daily to become better.
