In truth, for years I mostly thought of my body as that thing that moves my brain around and helps me put nutrition into my food hole. I was self-aware enough to realize it wasn’t a particularly accurate or healthy perspective. So I joined FE about six months ago to get to know my body again: how it works, what it needs, and how to live with it.

I’ve been dragging my feet with this testimonial because it would be so much more satisfying to say my body and attitude have been transformed. In truth, I’ve put on muscle steadily, my percent body fat has improved somewhat, I’m a bit more toned, have better range of motion, improved stamina, and flexibility. All good outcomes. It’s been a lot of work so far, with a lot more to do in order to reach my goals.

The good news is Sarah and Tyler have built a great facility meant for the kind of work I need to do. They’ve given me guidance, direction, and a plan to follow. Trainers Andrew and Dave have motivated me, been generous with their time, and genuinely caring (but not so caring I feel uneasy).

The FE community is welcoming. Though, I don’t like people and try to avoid direct eye contact. But that’s fine. It’s the kind of place that most anyone can feel comfortable to come and make steady progress. I kind of love it.
