I joined Body Buster in November 2015.
Each class is unique, the variety is unlike any fitness program I have tried. You really never know what to expect—except a great workout. Apart from that, the trainers and co-members are great, there is always such a positive atmosphere which keeps me motivated.
I don’t weigh myself but since joining I have been able to use clothes that I thought I would never fit into again.
But when I think about the strength and endurance I have gained, my weight loss pales in comparison. I started with 2 lbs. weights and now use 7 lbs. I think I’ll be up to 10 lbs. by the end of the year.
I think I’m addicted. I even don’t like our weeks off!
While I have weighed less before, now I’m in the best physical shape of my life. I’m stronger, faster and more flexible than ever.
Of course weight loss is a big factor but it’s not why I have stuck with Body Buster— I’m overall a happier person and have gained self-confidence.
I received an important piece of advice when I was in my late teens. Getting older was just a distant concept and I thought I could engage in unhealthy choices and just take care of my health when was older. The advice was to be healthier as an adult, taking care of yourself when you are young is imperative. I didn’t take that advice to heart then but it has always stuck with me and now I have put that into action.
Also, my grandmother is turning 93 this summer and while she never exercised rigorously, she always remained active and took long walks daily until her late eighties. She says remaining active is a huge factor for longevity. And she’s a healthy 93-year-old, still living on her own and till this day incorporates walks in her daily life.
Don’t be intimidated because it is a “boot camp”. It’s a really positive atmosphere for anyone, at any fitness level. And results are guaranteed!
Body Buster is only one hour out of your day but it’s a long-term investment in your health. It’s a simple cost-benefit equation. If you can’t commit to a program, start small. Even if it’s a brisk walk or short bike ride. It’s true what they say, once you start exercising and get those endorphins, it’s addictive and you will wonder how you could go so long making excuses.
I came for the weight loss but stayed for the endorphin high.
I remember during my first class I heard Dani give a more difficult exercise option for “die hard” members. I thought to myself I wish I was one and how do I become a die hard? Now I know it just takes time and perseverance. Some classes I can only do the modified version of exercises. On other days I can do way more than I expected. Body Buster has taught me to listen to my body and be kinder to myself.
Thanks so much to the whole Body Buster team!
