Since @i_am.limitless1 is having FREE CLASS WEEK (!!) I wanted to share how I got started! It all started with this pretty lady right here who was posting snapshots of classes and events! I was in awe of her motivation and honestly felt like I could never do that! I messaged her over the course of a few months, totally admiring her dedication. Meanwhile, I was totally stuck - I was stagnant from a weightloss perspective, dreaded the gym if I even went, and lacking motivation. When I saw a discount special, I messaged Julie again, explaining that I was struggling to get to the gym and how out of shape I had gotten, but I was thinking about giving it a try. She shared with me that IAL is the most supportive and positive gym she’s ever been to and even offered to go with me to my first class. I purchased a class pack (because honestly - I feared the commitment and was already paying for a gym that I wasn’t going to!) I went to my first Rhythm Ride a few days later. I will be totally upfront - I chose that class because I knew it would be dark 🥴 was it hard? YES! Was I able to do everything? NO. But I had SO much fun. I didn’t feel judged. For the first time in years, I felt hopeful about my fitness journey. I didn’t get through the class pack - I joined after my second class. All of the instructors introduced themselves to me before class and checked in after. I have found what Julie told me to be true - this place is filled with caring, motivating, and supportive people who have built a positive place to exercise regardless of your fitness level. . . I share all of this because I don’t know what could be holding you back. For me, it was fear I couldn’t keep up. Embarrassment that I had gained so much weight. Hesitation to invest in myself financially only to fail again. There will always be a reason not to take a chance. But if you’ve been curious about checking out IAL - now is the time!!!!! And to be honest, I feel like I need do what Julie did for me and pay it forward. Sometimes you just need that little push and reassurance and Julie did that for me. I hope that my experience might encourage someone to give it a try too!
