mind, body and soul

Her mind, body and spirit changed for the better

When I read her email, I closed my eyes and just smiled.

Yes, she gets it. It’s the feeling. It’s mind, body and spirit all on the same page.

Often times the journey starts because the “clothes don’t fit” or the numbers on the scale “aren’t the right ones”. But then something truly magical happens…

You start to feel different.

I never had the pleasure of knowing this client before she came to the studio but I know her now as a kindred spirit. Her story, similar to mine and countless others, serves to show us that it’s so much more than just numbers. It’s about the feeling.

I’m so truly grateful to her for sharing this. Below are her words.

 

Mind, body and spirit

I just wanted to express my gratitude to Lynn for helping me become a better version of myself. I’m just super thankful to be able to come to a studio where I feel safe, welcomed, and valued.

A few years ago, there came a point in my life where I dreaded looking in the mirror. I was also having a difficult time fitting into clothing at some of my favourite stores. My eating habits were also much to be desired and the number on the scale kept rising every month. I hated the way I looked, the way I felt, and who I had become…

That’s when I knew I needed to take action (pun intended). I found Emerge Fitness Studio through a recommendation, and that’s when I began training with the lovely Lynn in 2016 when my weight was at its all time high.

To be honest, it was all about weight loss for me in the beginning – to simply get the weight off and never look back. Never did I think that my journey to good health and happiness would mean so much more to me than just losing a few (okay, A LOT) of extra pounds.

As I scroll through pictures of the ‘old me’ on my phone, I can’t help but reflect on the woman I have become today. I hope I don’t sound brash, but I truly am incredibly proud of this accomplishment!! I FEEL like a different person. There’s no doubt that physically, I’ve lost weight, but what is more important is how I’ve changed, mentally. I see myself in a different light now. I see a more confident and positive woman that is truly happy when she looks in the mirror, something that I thought would NEVER be possible! The invaluable guidance from Lynn that I have received/still receive to this day has helped change my mind, body and spirit for the better.

Lynn, a big thank you to you for helping me get to where I’m at today ❤️. You make exercising enjoyable and fun, the way it should be! Thank you for pushing me. Thank you for being supportive and understanding. But most importantly, thank you for being you! You are an incredible person with a beautiful soul, and I’m so glad that I got to work with you 😊!

You are so amazing at what you do, and it’s evident that you truly care about the well-being of your clients :). I am so glad you have been by my side for my journey to good health and happiness :). Looking forward to continuing to work with you!! xo
