Read how one of our clients has found fitness success. We love you and are so happy to have you as part of our crew!
I drove by Crowbar and checked it out online. I asked my BFF Hayley if she would do a Barre class with me - should be fun, we can go together and see if we like it. 10 minutes in, and I gave her a look like OMG it has only been 10 minutes... I made it through one class full of skinny women that I compared myself to, and left thinking this was not for me. But Hayley wanted to go back and urged me to, so I did. And then we went back again, and again. Once a week at first, then sometimes twice a week. Then we got brave and branched out to a Triple Threat class and loved that too. A few months later I had lost 15 lbs and started to feel more confident about my body, and stopped comparing myself to others. I felt stronger, and actually was sad if I missed my "regular" class because of a work or home conflict. Then we signed up for the summer challenge and I got even more results. Now I workout at Crowbar 3 times a week pretty regularly (Barre is still my favorite). My husband is amazing and encourages me to go as often as I can.
The physical change in me after 9 months of Crowbar - 35lbs down. In February I was a size 16, and today I wore a size 6 skirt to work that I haven't worn in over 2 years. I weigh less now than I did before I even got pregnant. The emotional/mental change is even more substantial - It is about challenging myself - not comparing myself to others. Knowing that I'm strong enough and good enough to do it. I have much more self confidence - which makes me a better mom,wife, and friend. When I think about Crowbar, I think about a positive place where you can challenge yourself to new levels doing new things. The instructors are amazing , fun and super supportive. The other clients are too - it is always a happy place to be. I couldn't have done it without my Crowbar peeps.
