Making a Vision a Reality

Achieving Goals at the Y

I’ve always been an active person, but after college, the pounds really began to pack on. I had a vision of being in the military; I wanted to join the United States Air Force. However, I did not meet the weight requirement. This is when I began my weight loss journey. I worked out on my own and was able to drop some weight but after 8 months I hit a plateau. This past March I had my first fitness appointment at the YMCA with my Wellness Coach, Aaron. He was very professional and I was able to share my goals and aspirations.

We began this journey with a shared vision of what the outcome would be if I changed my eating habits and new fitness training principles. Within three weeks I could see my body changing. During the first few months, the workouts were very challenging, but he would not let me give up or quit. I have now lost 15 pounds and reduced my body fat by 9%! Coach Aaron has a saying that will stick with me forever; we are “making a hero.” Because of Aaron and the Y, I am ready to serve my country with pride.
