I chose Fusion Fitness and Yoga after failed attempts at the gym and doing random bootcamps. I started Fusion in August of 2010 doing bootcamps in the park. They were a breath of fresh air. Lindsey, the instructor, was so passionate but could be extremely challenging and pushed you all the way. I loved this style of fitness. It was at your own pace but then your competitive side would take over. Lindsey made you realize you can do more than you think. After a few weeks I realized that we were a family in bootcamp. I looked forward to seeing then each morning!!!
I knew then that I wanted to have a healthy, fun, and active lifestyle with these people and especially Fusion. I then got into yoga and started following the healthy meals that Lindsey recommended. I started to feel better physically and emotionally.
When I started Fusion I was overweight and depressed because my weight hindered certain things I wanted to do. I was in my late twenties and knew I had to change my like! Fusion showed me that even being overweight, I am strong enough to do anything I want and desire.
