Working out keeps me grounded and in a routine. It's a great way for me to relieve stress and stay humble through the struggle. There is no perfect lifter out there, you can always be improving technique-wise or strength-wise. It also allows me to be more lenient with what I eat (huge cookie and donut fan).
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.
This is a 5-month “before and after” from training at Ambitious Athletics. The biggest changes were hidden in my gains in core strength. I feel lighter when doing anything physical while also feeling stronger. I actually weigh about 13 pounds less.
Ambitious Athletics is full of some of the best and most supportive people you will ever meet. I bet everyone of us felt nervous or not sure if they really belong there when they first joined. I know I did, and I was already friends with Carmen. Just have fun and try to do the best you can. You will only get better.
