Eva came to us in 2013, after relocating from NYC to Southold. She was hesitant-although she wanted to make a change, she wasn't convinced that joining a gym was right for her. After meeting a few times, and explaining that our facility is "results driven" and focused on the members, Eva became a member of BodySmart!
She has been with us through many changes in our gym-both geographically and philosophically. Eva is one of our biggest supporters and advocates, and we are so proud of her accomplishments! She pushes through whatever stands in her way.
Here's Eva's story:
"I have struggled with weight all my life and after relocating from the city to suburbia, the weight really started to be a problem. I realized I needed to do something – I needed to get healthier and stronger. Never being a “gym person”, I was hesitant but I knew I could not do this on my own. I met with Chris at BodySmart here in Southold NY- he put me at ease and explained he would work with me at my level and we would get there. Well, six months later I was off all my blood pressure medicine! I could not believe the changes I was making!
What I appreciated most was how invested Chris was in my journey and that made me step it up – I was strength training 2-3 days a week and started to take some of the classes offered at BodySmart.
BodySmart recently introduced a new program into the gym –Fit in 42. - I was interested yet intimidated. I spoke with Chris many times and he along with the other trainers Rose and Annie really encouraged me to take this next step in my fitness journey. Life changing is all I can say! I was amazed at what I could do in the gym! Fit in 42 is a 6 week program that for me not only doubled my strength - increased muscle mass - took inches off - but it changed my commitment to myself and my workouts. It provided me not only with challenging workouts, but with a full meal plan. Whole food, real food, meals that I continue to make and enjoy long after the program ended! It also provided me with the proper mindset to take on my goals.
I realized that I deserve an hour a day to invest in myself and my well-being and started working out 6 days a week even after Fit in 42 – I now confidently take all the classes offered at BodySmart - TRX, Kettle bell, MetCon, CoreRyde, and Ryde.
The feedback from family and friends is so positive. I am constantly being told “you look great/healthy/toned”. I love the way I feel and the way I look.
If you are struggling and want to make a change, take that first step. Walk in the door and meet with Chris at BodySmart personally. I guarantee you will not regret it! Chris and the team will help you reach your goals in a positive supportive atmosphere." #lifechanging #bodysmart #northfork #fitness #notjustanothergym #ifitdoesntchallengeyouitdoesntchangeyou #southold #smallgymbigresults
