Before joining the No Limit family, going to the gym and working out was never a part of my everyday life. As a teen my weight was constantly fluctuating. After graduating from high school I gained a lot of weight. Finances forced me to stay home and attend community college. I focused all my time on school and work so I could transfer to a university. My lifestyle became very stagnant. Working out was seldom and my diet consisted of eating what I wanted, when I wanted it. At 20 years old I was the heaviest I had ever been, 220lbs. I got accepted to USC and I knew it was time to make a change. With only a few months before transferring I started running and watching what I ate. Over the next five months I lost 25lbs.
It didn’t come as a surprise when I gained a lot of the weight back.
School started again and I fell back into my old habits. My life continued to get busier and I convinced myself that working out should not be a priority. After graduating from USC, I moved back to Mission Viejo and started working full time at a Real Estate Investment Firm in Anaheim. On top of working 40+ hours a week and a 45 minutes commute each way, I was also commuting to USC twice a week for some post-grad work. I spent all my time either at work or school…or sitting in traffic. I always wanted to be in shape, to be confident in the way I looked, but had no idea how to make that happen.
It was motivating without being intimidating.
I was hesitant to join a gym because I had no idea how to work out. I had never lifted weights or even worked out in a gym because it seemed like a very intimidating place. There wasn’t one defining moment that sparked my desire to make a change, but my body was telling me it was time to take my health seriously. I knew that I wouldn’t have the discipline to work out if I just joined a typical gym. I needed someone to keep me motivated and accountable. I searched for personal training gyms near my office and after a ton of research I decided to check out No Limit in June 2016. I met with Mellissa for a consultation and a trial workout and immediately knew this was the gym for me! Everyone was so friendly and it was such a low-key and non-judgmental environment. I started training with Mellissa three days a week and the experience has been incredible. For the first time in my life I look forward to going to the gym. Mellissa also worked with me to create a meal plan in order to maximize my workouts.
I went from 206lbs to 175lbs.
The results I have seen in the past five months are unbelievable. I’m losing body fat while gaining muscle, and most importantly I feel amazing. For the first time I feel healthy, strong, and my confidence in through the roof! I’ve made countless new friends and gained great knowledge and skills about working out and eating right. I am beyond thankful to Mellissa and everyone at No Limit for supporting me throughout this journey. Joining No Limit was one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. This wasn’t a quick fix, this is a lifestyle change and I look forward to continuing my journey at No Limit. Believe me when I say I understand your hesitation. The gym can be an intimidating place, but No Limit is different. It’s not just a gym; it’s a family that is here to support you throughout your journey. No matter where you’re starting from, No Limit is the place for you.
