“I swam and played water polo for many years, so when it was time to transition into sports on land my freshman year of university I found it very difficult.”
I tried anything and everything from home workout videos, to buying a gym pass to LA Boxing, to trying to self-workouts, etc. My main problem was the lack of motivation. It took me a while but I have realized that one of the key factors in keeping me motivated is structure. When I tried to motivate myself at the gym, I would somehow convince myself that 30 minutes was ample enough, or somehow talk myself into doing only the bare minimum, which in return showed very little results and became even more disheartening.
I have never been a naturally small woman, I have always had to work extremely hard to keep myself in shape and feel genuinely happy with my appearance. Many of us joke around at bootcamp that I come and go in spells- one month I will be 100% dedicated and the next you’ll maybe see me two-three times a week. “You either go hard or go home!” And this is very true. I have found that it is really easy to feel sorry for yourself, but it’s really hard to give up on yourself when you have such an amazing team and support system like the one at No Limit!
“I fell in love with the bootcamp workouts that involve all of the techniques and organization I feel I need in order to succeed.”
I remember a few years back my mum came across No Limit and convinced me to try it out. I remember almost throwing up the first three days, but for some reason I kept going back and enjoyed it even more each and every single time. I fell in love with the bootcamp classes that involve all of the techniques and organization I feel I need in order to succeed. I get the opportunity to indulge in new exercises and just the right amount of help and motivation I need. I take pride in telling others that I actually look forward to going to bootcamp in the mornings. I take pride that I can express how welcoming and dedicated the staff and trainers at No Limit are, though I mostly take pride in being able to call myself a member of the No Limit family! The positivity and enriched stimulating environment alone create a sound basis of inspiration. Personally, I usually have an event in the near future that I am trying to lose weight and tone up for in which I inform the trainers and they push me harder every day closing in on the event.
Throughout the years my weight and happiness have fluctuated, and I have found that if I am not physically engaged in a workout routine my mental and emotional states suffer alongside my bodily state also. For the past four years it’s been extremely easy to get sidetracked with exams, assignments, work, etc., though it has been extremely hard to stay away from bootcamp for too long. I would tell newcomers and future clients that if you didn’t join the No Limit family, you would be crazy! You’d be missing out, BIG TIME! It’s definitely a commitment, but it will enhance your happiness in many aspects of your life.

I am currently working harder each and every day, adjusted my nutrition and diet, and dedicated my time and attendance more so too. You may ask what event I am striving for now? Well on May 23rd I graduated from Chapman University. I can vouch and say that without the No Limit team by my side throughout this crazy and stressful ride, I wouldn’t be where I am today. With all of the friendly faces and lovely friendships I’ve made along the way, to the blood sweat and tears I wouldn’t change anything for the world. Thank you No Limit family for being so freaking awesome and kicking my ass along the way!
