I talk about Slimmons a lot because I’ve had so many incredible experiences there! I have had some amazing workouts, and I’ve also met some incredible people. And one of those people is Paul. Aside from the fact that he’s seriously handsome, he also has an incredible story to share. And last night he shared it with me so I’m sharing it with you.
Paul was one of the first people I noticed at Slimmons when I was there in May because he seriously knows his stuff! He makes the entire workout look effortless which is awesome for me because I typically stand right behind him.
He began his journey that started at Slimmons in January. He had reached a point in which he knew he wanted to change his body and habits so he went to Slimmons after a friend suggested it. And he had so much fun that he just kept going back. He also changed his food habits replacing snacks (often times quality chocolate) with homemade fruit salads and adding turkey to his personal menu. And he lost 25 pounds.
It’s obvious when you’re talking to Paul or watching him workout that he feels fantastic. He’s a great example of someone who has changed his habits and his life. And while I have a long way to go, it’s much more fun to exercise with others who have embraced healthy living.
Do you find motivation in people you meet at the gym? Are you driven or in any way affected by what the people around you are doing when you’re working out?
