Cristina, from Bloomfield,NJ shares her personal training success story:
I have danced all my life. That being said, in my most active years I also ate whatever I wanted, as I spent innumerable hours in the dance studio. Fast forward to last summer as I completed my MBA. I had spent the past two years living and traveling abroad in Europe. Needless to say, many hours were spent studying, wining, and dining. Exercising and eating healthy? Not so much.
When I got home from Barcelona, it was a huge wake up call for me. I was the heaviest I had ever been and extremely out of shape. Thanks to my sister Jessie (already a NJFF success story!), I was inspired to also make the necessary changes for a healthier lifestyle. I signed up for a 6 week program at NJ Fitness Factory, began a nutrition plan, and never looked back.
Despite my dance background, I admit I can be a bit lazy, so I found that the one-on-one personal training sessions were extremely effective for me. Frank was a fantastic trainer who not only motivated me, but also pushed me to accomplish new goals each week! He also prevented me from slacking as I knew I would have to be accountable to someone other than myself.
Loving the changes I was both seeing and feeling in my body, I decided to try the 90 day challenge next! During this time, not only was I losing weight, but I was actually building muscle and toning up!
Since I started in September, I have lost over 35 lbs! A big thanks to the entire NJFF family of trainers and staff for all your support and encouragement during this time. Now it’s Doug’s turn to keep whipping me into shape! Can’t wait to see what’s coming up next.
