I tried multiple weight loss programs. I would lose weight quickly until the moment I stopped the diet. Then, I would gain back all the weight. I realized exercise needed to be an integral part of my life, but I hated exercising. Having struggled with a torn ACL and its recovery, I was scared to return to my old gym. When I joined the Center, I met Adalia. After one session with her, I felt happy; I felt sore; I felt muscles I never knew existed. However, I was having fun. I no longer viewed exercising as scary because I knew Adalia had my back. There were times when I “fell off the wagon.” Adalia made sure I got back on. After five months of training with her, I lost 20 pounds and two dress sizes. I know a lot was due to me. However, the sustainability of my weight loss is definitely thanks to her. Now, I not only consider Adalia as my trainer but also my friend.
