Before joining Club Sweat, Ray felt like he was all over the place. Zero motivation, sick and tired of big box gyms, crash diets and ridiculous cleanses just to look good in family photos on Vacation. He felt completely unhealthy.
“I originally sought out Club Sweat because I knew I needed structure. I
was ready to find something that I could sink my teeth into and be held accountable, also while having fun and being comfortable in the atmosphere.”
2 years ago before starting up with Club Sweat, Ray lacked consistency and motivation. 2 years later, “ I have managed to change my thought pattern just by being consistent. Even on the days, I don’t want to work out, I always play the Club Sweat phrase on the wall through my head constantly “Remember why you started”. For me, this has always been huge. I struggled with being unhealthy and not having the energy to play with my kids. Being overweight lead to heartburn, constant snoring, and was just messing with my mental health. Not to mention my stress and anxiety had become unmanageable for me.”
Ray says there is a lot to be proud of for sure! “My overall health is better, my knee is way more flexible than it has been in years and I am down to the lowest weight I have been since I was 19 years old! The end goal is always changing but I am going into my 50th next year and I cannot wait to be in the best shape of my life on my 50th birthday.
“I feel like I have achieved a lot, but I don’t feel like I have achieved anything yet. I feel like I am a constant work in progress. I can do a lot of things now that two years ago probably would have killed me, not to mention that I like cardio now! Lol”
When we asked Ray what he likes most about working with Club Sweat his answer brought us to tears…“There is nothing I do not like about working with you. These past two years have been life-changing, I would say for all of us. Being part of the Club sweat family is the best thing that could have ever happened to me. If I had to pick one thing it’s the relationship we all have. You both genuinely care about not only myself but my family and the investment in just knowing what is going on in my life on a day-to-day basis is next level for any trainer.”
Ray’s future is limitless on where he can go with his health and fitness. “Having the structure in place made making it through the pandemic much easier. I would hate to think of where I could have been if I remained on the same path I was on before club sweat. There are so many positives the list is endless.
