“Doing endless cardio and a few arm exercises could never have produced the results that (assisted) pull ups, chin ups, push ups, and all of the rows have done for my back. That strength feels great, but I learned a lot about the importance of core stability and being patient through this process. Don't ever feel defeated when doing something modified. If you work, it will come.”
I was intimidated when I first started to workout at Ambitious Athletics. I had never lifted weights like that before, and I was already “not in my 30’s” anymore. I didn’t think I would ever be strong enough or see any sort of progress. I was so wrong! I did get stronger, and I’ve improved in so many ways even beyond the gym. Just try it, and you might be surprised of what you can learn about yourself!
I wanted to join a community -- working out alone or with a personal trainer gets dull -- I found myself being complacent when I was working out alone --- having a community of dedicated everyday athletes makes it fun and exciting to show up at the gym every day.
What I love most about Ambitious Athletics, though, is the social, communal aspect of it. I have met the most incredible people and made the greatest friends through the program. We encourage, support, and push each other; hold each other accountable for coming to the sessions (thanks, Yasmin, Will, and Jaclyn for the texts); and most of all, we have fun.
You are so lucky to have stumbled upon this incredible community! Soak it up! Bask in it! You are in the best hands to accomplish whatever it is you want to set as a goal for yourself.
