The best part about The Foundation, in terms of health and fitness, is the programming and support from the coaches and other members. I never have to come up with a workout on my own, and if I ever have questions or frustrations (fitness or nutrition), someone always has a helpful answer that gets me on track with my goals.
I tell the story of my first day a lot because I remember what it was like to be brand new and scared to walk into a class. On my way to The Foundation for the first time, I had tears (literal tears) because I was so nervous and scared of the unknown. I only knew what I had seen on tv or read about with these types of workouts. I thought for sure I wouldn’t be able to anything and would look and feel ridiculous. To my surprise, it wasn’t like that at all. I can’t even explain it but I was able to do some version of everything on the board. The coach made sure I was doing what I could and the other members were so supportive because I truly believe everyone remembers what it’s like to be new in that situation.
To anyone who is thinking about trying The Foundation, all I would say is PLEASE DO IT. The absolute hardest part is getting in the door the first time but once you do, its life changing. Just because you can’t do everything, you can still do something. Even to this day, there are things I feel I can do really well and things I’m not even close to where I want to be. That’s what makes it great. I have hit small goals, bigger goals, and still, I can’t ever see myself stopping because there’s so much to achieve.
I have now been a member at The Foundation for close to two years. To say I will be forever grateful for the things this place has brought to my life would be an understatement. I have done things I’ve never thought possible and for the first time EVER, I enjoy working out. I feel mentally and physically stronger, more confident, and just a better version of the old me in every aspect. Along with that, I have met and become friends with the most amazing people. The “Community” you’ve heard about is real… and it’s awesome. I can honestly say that joining The Foundation has been, hands down, the best decision I’ve ever made for myself. My only regret is not becoming a member sooner than I did.
