Joining SLS Fitness back in May 2012 was the best decision I have ever made in my Life. If someone had told me a year and a half ago that I’d be doing the things I am doing at SLS I would have just laughed because I never thought it was possible nor was I confident in myself, I was more ashamed at how I looked in the mirror.
I had heard about SLS Fitness though friends and I’ll admit I was curious but thats not what got me through those doors, it had more to do with what my doctor had said and was the biggest scare I had in my life. A few months before I joined, my doctor had me get some blood work done for thyroid disease because my mom who was 50 and had just received news that she had an under active thyroid and needed to take medication for that well I was just about to turn 24 and during my follow-up visit the doctor tells me I had the same issue that my mom had. She proscribed me the same medication and told me I should get an ultrasound done just to be safe. A few days later news went from bad to worse turns out they found a cyst/lump, next thing I knew I was in with a specialist and getting prepped for a Biopsy. Luckily it ended up being a cyst not a tumor but that they need to keep an eye on it.
 
Well that’s when I decided to look for a gym because lying their getting that Biopsy done was one of the scariest and painful procedure I have ever experienced and was a wakeup call for me. And as soon as I stepped foot into the doors at SLS Fitness I knew this was where I need to be, everyone was so nice and welcoming. I still can’t believe it’s already been 1 year and 3 months and it’s been an amazing journey. My thyroid levels elevated to the point where I no longer needed my medication, my doctor was very proud and shocked to see those results and the cyst has shrunk since my last doctors visit and don’t have to go back  for a follow-up for about two years. But best of all I went from a size 18 to a size 12 and I have so much confidence in myself that I have never felt in ages. I have gotten stronger and I feel amazing I have never felt this kind of energy in a long, long time and it’s all thanks to all the amazing trainers and members.
 
The support, encouragement and amazing advice have helped me so much from how I should train to what I should eat. Train smart and eat clean/healthy if youre resting youre doing it right. I am so honored to be part of such an amazing family. SLS Fitness for me is my Home Away from Home because it doesnt matter how down or stress youre feeling cause theres always someone that will make you laugh, make you determined and make you believe in yourself each and every day. So Thank You SLS Fitness Trainers and Members for making this journey an amazing one and I cant wait for whats to come.  I LOVE SLS FITNESS AND PROUD TO SAY IT
