1 year ago I felt like I was defined by the aches & pains of midlife! Dealing with massive acid reflux, zero energy and the extra 20 lbs of WT…
On a whim I walked in unannounced to Trufitness where I met Mary and started the 21 day free trial. I was hooked! I was literally getting personal training in a class setting and creating relationships with others who at one time had the same challenges. I was being taught the correct form & technique and over time understanding the terminology and the method Mary has to help us build overall strength.
Not gonna lie, there was total judgment and fear coming from inside my head every morning when I walked in at 6AM class especially when it came time for my 1st test date. I was scared to fail and look pitiful but the coaches and the tribe reminded me they all had their first test date and had the same feelings so I pulled it together and did the best I could.
As a teacher I know a thing or two about the value of consistency so I went to the gym 4-6 times a week.
Here’s the events that unfolded during this past year. Remember the extra midlife 20#? I got rid of it in a way I never thought possible! I actually learned a few things about my internal body by way of Mary’s “Cleanse the Palette” program, life changing! I eliminated inflammation, learned what foods serve my gut/brain health while building my own food pyramid and at the same time gained an obnoxious amount of lean muscle and here’s the kicker, I wasn’t on a DIET! NO more acid reflux or meds, sleeping better and the energy boost from the foods I eat and the training has led to running on purpose. I entered several 5K’s finishing the season with a tough 8 mile run and placed in my age division, #BAAM
I knew nutrition and exercise were key components to a healthy lifestyle but I’ve also learned the importance of needing a positive mindset. Totally challenging but with Mary’s help during our 1:1 sessions and the homework she gives during her fitness & health challenges are helping me through the failed attempts at the barbell rack and in life.
I want to share the growth I’ve had in 1 years time with strength training. As a woman it's tough to imagine growing muscle without turning into a beefy bodybuilder.
My 1st test date a year ago for my squat was 95lbs, today 155lbs. Deadlift 95lbs up to chest press from 70lbs to 90lbs, you guys anything is possible! Thank you to the Trufit team for believing in me and keeping me accountable and the tribe.
In 2020 I was now a little under a year and half postpartum with my twins. I’ll insert here→ I have 6 kids total. I was a stay at home Mom teaching Fti4Mom classes a couple times a week while trying to make it a priority to exercise myself. I’m a brand partner with an activewear company, Zyia, this led to a meeting with Mary, owner of Trufitness.
There were zero intentions of joining her gym. I was there to share some amazing activewear, make a new connection and hope she buys some items. As I was leaving she said, “I offer 21 days free training, would you be interested”? I thought, why not 3 weeks free? Who does that?!
I completed the trial and was hooked.
Trufitness is different, it's smaller, more intimate with a focus on personal training in a small group setting. Mary and Selena program in a way that if you stay consistent you’ll get stronger, leaner and purge the extra fluff while having fun. Seriously, this group of people I’ve met have literally become my extended family.
I didn’t consider myself completely novice. I mean it had been a hot minute since I was going to a gym regularly. Like most Women I usually gravitated towards HIIT circuits so when I showed up for Mary’s strength class I was super intimidated! I felt weak and unsure of what I was doing but in a short amount of time with her help and the help of the tribe I was seeing and feeling results. I must note, there’s never any judgment and no drama.
In the Fall of 2020 I joined one of Tru’s fitness & health challenges. I wasn’t necessarily looking to lose weight being a tall/lean person however I knew I felt sluggish and was hoping to gain some insights into what this cleanse was all about and why aren’t we dieting?!
Fast forward 2022 my health and body has taken on an amazing transformation! Mary’s cleanse taught me so much about my gut/brain health, what foods serve me well and I got answers to what ails me, meaning causes of bloating, fatigue and inflammation. Here’s the cool part, I’m NOT dieting, counting calories. This is me building my food pyramid and eating a ton of food that helps heal me and grow muscle.
A big part of Tru’s challenges is the homework. No, its not what you think. Mary is a lifestyle coach with extensive knowledge in self development, nutrition and wellness. One of the tools she uses to help us both with our mindset and health is handing us weekly assignments through podcasts, Ted Talks, and journaling. This has been so enlightening to the point I share this info with my family. It has also motivated me to start the first steps in becoming a fitness instructor.
If you’re a Mom and feel like you can’t get your groove back or your figure STOP what you’re doing and join me! I promise this will be life changing.
I'm in my 70's, a Mom, Grandparent & still working. I've been an avid golfer for quite some time but knew I needed more in order to stay active in the game and life.
There are a few motivating factors that lead to meeting Mary in May of 2021. First, improve my golf game, 2nd, stay ahead of the aging process, 3rd, not have to drive an electric cart in the grocery store and last, not become a burden to my family but inspire them with my amazing strength.
Trufitness is different, they take into account my age, my fitness level and any injuries and work the program around my needs.
The philosophy is simple, they teach you how to exercise with proper form and technique and challenge your mind & body. Mary has created a nutrition program, "cleanse the palette" an elimination process that focuses on our gut/brain health while eliminating inflammation.
During the last 12 months I have lost over 10lbs, dropped my visceral and subcutaneous fat 3 points and lost a total of 15 inches. The best part is that I trust myself to move through life with balance and ease and if should fall my body is strong enough to withstand it and not have to reach for the call button!
Matthew was an athlete throughout his childhood with a focus on wrestling.
He did well enough to land a spot on a college team.
Unfortunately he got injured his freshman year and that set him back.
He graduated and went about his career, building a family but continued to deal with chronic back pain for the next 5-6 years.
After years of struggling with his health he went under the knife and was left with some serious hardware and a boat load of prescription meds.
There's nothing harder than having an athletic/competitive mindset yet being told you can no longer participate in certain exercises or get out on the mat and spar from a doctor.
Matthew was not going to let his injury or surgery define him.
In 2021 with much anxiety and stress he went under the knife and had some of his hardware removed from his back. This was the 1st step in moving forward in his quest to strengthen his body and mindset and fulfill his desires to coach wrestling again.
Matthew committed to physical therapy but wanted more. He reached out to coach Mary and asked if she could personal train him and help him gain strength and confidence so he could actively participate with his team.
Within 100 days he lost over 30lbs and gained unbelievable strength and endurance allowing him to spar with his team but more importantly feel equipped to handle everyday tasks and challenges while inspiring his family.
