I hired a trainer and started working
towards my goal of a healthy body fat percentage. At 25% body fat and 153 lbs
(heaviest – 165 lbs at 5’5) I was on the right track. In February 2007, I
decided I wanted to do a Figure competition. I had done Triathlons, which is a
muscular endurance sport – Figure/Physique is a Muscle Strength sport – needless
to say, Every day I was in pain from gaining muscle – No Pain, No Gain! I loved
it because even though I was your typical “Cardio” queen – I didn’t see the
weight come off nearly as much as I did when I lifted heavy.
August 2007 rolled around and I competed
in my first Figure Competition. It was incredible, although I didn’t place, my
body transformation was incredible. I got down to 8% body fat and 118lbs. Truly
Metroflex has changed my life. Something
about that gym wants you to come back and stay. You know everyone in that gym,
its not like going into 24 fitness in a huge gym and being intimidated by the
large over sized rooms and tons of people you probably wont see again. Metroflex
is a family, they really care about your success and if it doesn't work they
will find a way to make it work for you. Rendy, my trainer there, has changed my
life, so has brian and all of the metroflex staff. I don't know what I would do
today if it wasn't for them. It will always be my home gym no matter how far
away I may be!
