Plain and simple, this gym is in the top 5 best things to happen to me in my life. If you’re looking for a place that is absolutely NO JUDGEMENT, will work with you and help you regardless of how “in shape” you are, have previous injuries, or are just looking for a support system this place has it all! If you’re trying to get in shape and shed a couple pounds I can guarantee that if you commit to this program, it will absolutely work for you! Within about 5-6 months I lost over 20 pounds and counting! The best news about that, is I did it the right way, with no quick fads, so it was safe and healthy for my body and I’m more likely to keep it off. If you’re already convinced then read no further; however, if you still need a little bit more persuading let me go into a bit more detail.
I was a former collegiate athlete with previous injuries, so I hurt all the time, from the moment I stepped out of bed until I finally crawled back into bed. Therefore, I quit working out because the only way I knew how to work out was lift heavy and put a lot of strain on my body, and therefore I gained quite a bit of weight. I was unhappy, unhealthy, and ultimately was in grief for losing the first love of my life, soccer. Yoga Athletex could not have come into my life at a better time! I started going once a week and then twice a week and now I’m there about 4 days a week. After much convincing and persuading the girls at Yoga Athletex convinced me to try yoga. I went in there very reluctantly, and came out wishing I had been practicing yoga my entire life. I haven’t felt this great in years! After months of practicing I’m able to touch my toes! This may not seem like a great victory for some of you, but I’ve never been able to touch my toes in my entire life. Now I’m telling every single one of my friends they need to do yoga, whether they need help emotionally, mentally, or physically. By the way I was “that athlete” that thought yoga was lame and pointless, talk about making me eat my own words. These women have helped pushed me to be my best and supported me in some of my most difficult times. Yoga Athletex isn’t just a gym, it’s a family! If you’re a former athlete and feeling like a part of you is missing, or wanting to get into shape and need someone to push you, or feeling like you need a support system then go check out Yoga Athletex, because I promise you WILL NOT be disappointed!
