In the spirit of our We Love Our Coaches Award, we’d like to share a story of a coach who restored a former Major League Baseball player’s love for the game.
Behind every success, there’s always a story of a great coach, too. One of our In-Shape members found her way back to health, and thanks our staff members for their help along her journey.
At In-Shape, we always try our best to inspire our members reach their goals, live healthy and feel good about themselves. Today we’d like to share a story of how our personal trainer, Danielle, helped one member beat all the odds and continue on a journey to good health and happiness.
I had been large most of my life and used my fat as an excuse to bow out of life experiences because I felt terrible about myself. On Mother’s Day 2013, my son and I took a picture together and I couldn’t believe how big I was.
Since I was 12 years old I’ve always struggled with gaining weight. As a little girl, the fast weight gain led to stretch marks on the backs of my legs and me becoming incredibly self-conscious getting in and out of swimming pools. Over the years, I tried several times to lose weight, but I never stayed dedicated to the routines and regimens.
