What inspired you to begin your lifestyle transformation?

Growing up, I was never the skinny girl and averaged on the heavy side. When I was pregnant with my first child, my weight spun out of control. I gained a whopping 75 pounds! Needless to say, losing the baby weight was a struggle. Then for my job I had an opportunity to work with Shaun ‘T’. After training with him , I dropped to the lowest weight I had ever been in my adult life…but I didn’t go about that weight loss correctly. I was starving and felt exhausted!  I was limited to only 1,100 calories a day!  Yes I lost weight, but also lost muscle and  had NO muscle tone at all! A few months later, I was pregnant with my second child. This time I gained about 50 pounds.  Coincidentally, a friend of mine needed a partner for this 6 week weight loss competition. I jumped at the opportunity! That’s when Inspirational Life and I started to date!  After the first class I knew this was going to be something different …. something amazing …. something life changing . For the first time I truly felt alive and amazing!! Thanks to Brian and Cathie, I finally understood what a healthy lifestyle was. And even though the scale showed a similar number from my experience with Shaun T, this time around I did it the healthy way. I was 100% stronger and healthier and best of all …. not starving my body!

How did Inspirational Life help you achieve your goal and how have the results affected your life?

I owe everything to Brian and Cathie and the Inspirational Life family. Inspirational Life is not just a gym. It’s not just strength training. It’s not just a typical fitness classes. It’s a complete lifestyle ‘makeover’ with two people that genuinely care about helping you achieve your goals. There hasn’t been one class since I started where Brian or Cathie hasn’t pushed me…pushed my limits…made me stronger… and that is instrumental to my success.

Over my life I have used every excuse in the book ….  “I’m not meant to be thin”, “Working out is not effective”, “I’m big boned” etc, but now at 34 years old, I feel the BEST I ever have in my entire life.  I’m a mother of two, I work full time, and I travel a lot for my job. With the help of Brian and Cathie, I learned it’s all about MY decisions and MY choices. Even when I travel, I get up early and workout. I choose my meals wisely and skip that 2nd glass of wine at dinner. I have found the reward – the feeling of being a happier wife, mother, friend, worker . That feeling greatly out weighs anything else.

Describe Inspirational Life in one word.
