1) Before joining RLAF what was your biggest struggle? What were your biggest frustrations?
Before joining RLAF my biggest struggle has been pushing myself to do better physically. My biggest frustrations has been the fear of setting myself up for failure by not meeting a goal or challenge which is the reason why I struggle to push myself.
2) How did your struggle and frustrations affect your life? What did you feel like before joining RLAF?
I normally don’t let my frustrations affect my life. I have always looked at each day as a new day to start all over again and not let the day before impact me but prior to RLAF, I found it hard to stay focused on being consistent in any type of training routine.
3) What was it about RLAF that made you join?
Honestly, my very first meeting with Charly and his energy and honesty. Most gyms are only looking to meet their bottom dollar and not really interested in knowing their clientele. Charly made me feel like he really wanted to get to know you as a person, your likes, dislikes and helping you achieve your goals.
4) What made you stay with us? What do you enjoy the most about RLAF?
The structure of the programs, the cheering on from everyone in class to help push you through the last set of pushups or whatever the WOD of the day is.
Having both the coaches and members give me that little extra push to say you can go heavier with the weight or you can do it. Brian M. called me out on this just the other day, telling me I am stronger than I think I am and I can lift heavier. I realized I still struggle with pushing myself to do better.
5) How did our program help you? How is Life different for you now?
I realized I am a work in progress. I have not attained the goals that I want just yet but every day is a new day. I have days where I am unhappy with myself and then there are those days where I am proud of what I just accomplished in the gym. There are more days where I am proud of myself than disappointed in myself because of RLAF.
6) Were there any specific goals that you reached that you are particularly proud of? How did it make you feel?
I am still working on my goals but being able to do two double unders in a row was a thrill.
7) What would you tell someone interested in joining RLAF?
The workouts are challenging but you have a whole group of people rooting for you. Everyone is friendly and caring about you as a person. Just give it a try and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish and the friends you will make.
8) Is there anything personal you would like to add?
Just a big thank you to everyone who has cheered me on, encouraged me to try, and even those just saying hello passing in the hallway during those early morning workouts. A thank you to the coaches for all the time you take to make it fun.
