Burning In Community
When I look back and reflect on 2018 I can honestly say I stuck with my New Year Resolution! Each New Year I find myself wanting to lose weight and get fit, I know it’s a little cliché but the fact of the matter is that I start something and then quit. Working out and eating right only lasts so long with me…I know I am not alone. Millions of people get that gym membership when January 1st rolls around but the drive fizzles out just after a couple of months. That’s why when I walked into Burn Bootcamp Tega Cay my life was forever changed! You guys I have been working out at Burn for 14 months straight now! This is the longest stretch I have ever stuck with working out and I do not see me stopping…EVER.
Here’s a little back story: I had my third & largest son in February of 2017 and I had gained a LOT of weight. I was in really good shape before getting knocked up, go figure. After baby boy number 3 was born I weighed around 170lbs and honestly I didn’t think I would ever get out of my maternity pants, but I knew I needed to try because I was seriously miserable. So after around 8 weeks post baby I started going back to the YMCA. I had a really great muscle building program that I had followed after my second child so I figured that was a great place to start but honestly the weight was not coming off quick enough. I needed something with higher intensity. So after working out at the YMCA for 7 months and losing around 14 pounds, I needed a change. Side note, I totally thought I looked better than I actually did.
It was near the end of October of 2017 that I was talked into trying out Burn Bootcamp by my awesome and super in shape friend. They offer a two week free trial to come try it out and so I gave it a go. I literally went 12 out of the 14 days because I was loving the workouts. After it was over I went back to the YMCA very reluctantly because I had told myself it was too expensive. Lucky for me I won the drawing that allowed me to work out at Burn until the New Year!! Then they had an amazing promotion called Raise the Bar and its a 6-week program for $99, and I couldn’t refuse. In the short time that I had went to Burn I was seeing amazing results and I was meeting amazing women that not only pushed me in my workouts but also became true friends outside the gym. After I completed Raise The Bar I was down to my pre-pregnancy weight of 140 and fitting into size 4/6 jeans, holla! In the short time I had been there I lost several inches and a total of 16 lbs. I was hooked!!!
Burn Tega Cay is seriously so freaking special! It’s not just a place to work out at, but it’s also a community, a family. The trainers truly want to see you succeed and they will help you reach your goals. The girls at the front desk will know your name and greet you with a smile. I urge you, if you haven’t tried it out yet to come check it out. It just might surprise you. It’s become a great outlet for me, I look forward to my 45 minutes of ME time! And yes, they have child watch…hallelujah.
As Mother’s we have to take care of ourselves so we can be at our best for our little ones. So I challenge you to get up and get moving, find something you love and let’s stop starting over! If you decide to come to Burn believe me you will not regret it and please come say hello.
Cheers to one hell of a Happy & Fit New Year!
