I started with Body Buster in 2016 – I was looking for an alternative to the Mom & Baby bootcamp I had been doing while on mat leave. I was new in Toronto – I had moved from Montreal in spring 2015 just before my little guy was born – and didn’t exactly know where to start.

I like the fun classes – the “dice” sets are probably my favourite – and admire how creative the Body Buster instructors are. And, yes, I really like the people. You guys! What a fun, diverse crowd! I felt welcome from day one and that’s because of the amazing Body Busters but it is also something Body Buster cultivates from my perspective.
My primary goal was to feel good and I didn’t pay a lot of attention to my weight. I know I lost a few pounds and am not too far away from my pre-pregnancy weight right now.

It was a no brainer. I love the summer outdoors program and the variety of the classes. Even though it is a group setting, I know that I will get advice and customized coaching if I need it. As a working mom with a busy schedule, I love the flexibility Body Buster gives me. Body Buster just doesn’t say it, Body Buster makes me feel like my health, my body and myself matter.
My body has definitely become a lot fitter and stronger – arms, legs, core, endurance, you name it. My husband says I am one of the fittest people he knows, but that’s because he hasn’t met any other Body Busters yet. Body Buster has become part of my life. It is my lifeline to a point that I am suffering through the week off if I don’t work out by myself – so does everybody around me.

Body Buster has quite literally become my lifeline. I went through hell at work in 2017/18 to a point where I was diagnosed with depression which interestingly stopped as soon as I left the company. I know I wouldn’t have been able to push through it without Body Buster. Now that things have normalized, life is still stressful – I am a mom and an entrepreneur, I am active on a board, I am helping build a cohousing community in Toronto. I wouldn’t be able to do all of that without my weekly dose of Body Buster. I have gained health, happiness, strength, confidence and the ability to better deal with stress.
When my body’s not happy, I am not happy. The mind-body connection is very, very real. Plus, we only have one body, meaning we need to treat it well and be kind to it so we can live in it hopefully for many years to come. It is as simple as that.

Do it. It is fun, it is challenging, it is diverse, the people are amazing and it makes you feel great. Need I say more?
Make time. Make yourself a priority because that’s what it is about. Make working out part of your schedule, your routine. This way you don’t have to decide whether you can go or not. You just do it. It’s psychology.

I just want to say thank you for three amazing years of Body Buster Fitness. Kudos to the amazing team. I am in love.
