Testimonial from a Get Fit Participant
When I joined the Get Fit Program, I didn't have a lot of confidence given that I was at my highest weight ever and hadn't exercised in quite some time, but I knew I needed a change. The team did a great job with setting a program, listening to our feelings and fears, and challenging us to meet/beat our goals. With their help, I lost 20+ pounds and 10+ inches during the program. My self confidence is back, my weight continues to decrease, and my blood pressure has come down. The success I gained during this program has helped me to make other changes in my life and I'm committed to continuing a healthier lifestyle with diet and exercise.
