We are so excited to share Heather’s story with you this month! Heather just passed her six-month anniversary with Aleda and she has made some amazing strides so far.
Heather had worked out at other gyms with other trainers before finding Aleda, but never felt like she found the right fit. She was looking for a welcoming place that would meet her individual needs and allow her to work at her own pace. Having just turned 30, Heather was determined to have a fresh, healthy start to this new decade in her life – and a few months later, she decided to start her journey at Aleda!
One of Heather’s goals for 2016 was to lose 40 pounds, and thanks to her hard work both in the gym and at home, Heather has hit her halfway milestone – she has lost 20 pounds in the last six months! In addition to her success on the scale, Heather has also noticed an increase in her confidence in the gym. She’s lost a pant size, has more energy, and feels stronger: lots of victories in just a few short months!
Heather participated in our Total Transformation challenge in May and saw the most significant weight loss of any of our female participants. Though she was uncertain about the elimination-style nutrition challenge at first, she and her husband had a lot of success experimenting with their eating habits, and have incorporated several things from the challenge into their daily lives going forward.
It’s been an honor to watch Heather progress through her journey. She is always a positive presence in our evening classes and is branching out and trying more and more new things as her confidence grows. Just the other week Heather tackled banded pull ups for the first time! “Finding something you enjoy makes weight loss so much easier,” Heather noticed. “I’m surprised that it’s fun to lift weights – that was never appealing to me before!”
Congratulations on your consistent hard work and continued progress, Heather! With such a solid foundation built in the first six months, we’re so excited to see where the rest of the year takes you.
