Hard Work Yields Results: Part I

At Farmgirlfit, one of our favorite things is to see our members create goals and work hard to reach them.  We asked Melissa, a dedicated member, to share her journey at Farmgirlfit thus far.  From October 2011 to March 2012, Melissa lost 40 pounds by working out at Farmgirlfit and making significant nutritional changes.  Enter Melissa:

In the Spring of 2011, I had an annual physical during which the doctor told me that I needed to lose weight and get my triglycerides down because I was on track for having Diabetes.  That spring, I tried being serious about losing weight, but I just wasn’t focused.  I couldn’t find a place to work out that gave me the sense of accomplishment and camaraderie that I longed for. I had done functional fitness at other gyms and tried to do these same workouts at big box gyms by myself, but it didn’t work.  I needed others around me to motivate and inspire me. So when Farmgirlfit opened, I knew I had to at least give it a try.  Needless to say, Farmgirlfit was my answer. I knew from the moment I walked in to Farmgirlfit on October 3rd, 2011 that it would be a component for my journey to a healthier Me.  Farmgirlfit brings together women who share the same passion about working hard to get results making it a safe place to be all you can be, challenge yourself, and be inspired by others.
