This past year has gone by so quickly, I can't believe how much has changed. For two years prior to joining 212, my boss would mention this amazing gym he belonged to. Well, little did I know how much it would change my life. Being in my early 50's, overweight, and on the verge of being on high blood pressure and cholesterol meds, myself and fitness took a backseat to my family for many years and it was time for a change. 

When presented with an offer I couldn't refuse, I joined 212 exactly one year ago this month. The classes are challenging to say the least, but continue to push you to your highest ability. Within four months of joining, my blood pressure and cholesterol were completely under control, not to mention the weight loss; and presents you with a challenge. I now understand the importance of physical and mental health to deal with such things.

I have made friends and learned so much from my 212 family and although this year presents me with many challenges, I hope to continue my journey with 212 for many years to come. 

Thank you Kerry, Colin, Sean, Alicia, Aura, Kim, Tony, Steve and Heather for always challenging me, making me laugh, and keeping me coming back!
