Before and After
After innumerable diets, wasted gym memberships, and hundreds of pounds lost and regained over the course of my lifelong struggle with my weight, I reached the point where I was simply tired and frustrated of being so unhealthy. I was inspired as I witnessed Carrie’s amazing physical transformation through her work with Andy. I had never worked out with a trainer or a group until I started working out at Elevate in June of 2012. Today, with Andy’s expertise, encouragement, and constant support, I am eighty pounds lighter. I am healthier, stronger, and happier with myself than I have ever been. I am completely filled with gratitude for all that Elevate has done to help me change and improve my life through exercise and healthy eating. Elevate has, and continues, to help me learn me to believe in the power of me!
Connecting with Carrie and Andy, our coach in the summer of 2012 has changed my life tremendously. I lost a total of 55 lbs. and am eating healthier and maintaining my weight through the Cape Cod Cleanses and weekly class workouts with Andy. My outlook on life, my energy level and motivation, as well as the confidence in myself has brought me to new heights. I had struggled with my weight all my life and tried so many other diets and exercise classes/gyms and none have worked until now. Working out at Elevate is a game changer. The support system of Andy, Carrie, and the workout members, has created a second family for me with its atmosphere of camaraderie. We have each other’s backs and offer encouragement before, during and after workouts. Many friendships have formed and we have come rely on one another. Come to Elevate and truly enhance your mind, body, and soul!
Andy and Carrie of Elevate fitness have helped changed every aspect of my life for the better. Overweight my entire life, continuously gaining and losing the same 30 pounds most of my adult life, I believed I was just destined to always be heavy. Although I had attempted working out, at almost every gym on the south shore, I would never see results that would be enough to motivate me to keep going consistently. In less than a year of working out with Andy and eating CCC cleanse food allowed me to transform my body and lose over 70 lbs and counting. I am forever indebted to Elevate for allowing me to finally be healthy and be able to live life, rather than just exist in it.
After years of struggling with yo-yo diets and erratic weight gain, and always feeling completely out-of-control with my food habits, I found myself facing my biggest challenge yet: getting back to a healthy weight after the birth of my second child.
It was September 2013 when my 5-week old daughter and I visited Elevate to catch-up with old friends. I ended up slowly walking on the treadmill for 10 minutes. And somewhere between Andy’s encouragement, Carrie’s enthusiasm, and the camaraderie of the group, I knew this was going to be my second home. They gave me the support and skills to surpass my goals, and gave me a lot of laughs along the way. Who knew weight loss and exercise could be so fun and delicious?
60 pounds lighter and equipped with both the knowledge about how to make healthier choices and the confidence that I can succeed on this journey, I am stronger than I’ve ever been. For the first time in my life, I actually feel athletic and capable. It’s an unbelievable feeling and I am forever grateful to my Elevate crew for helping me to stay the course.
