After having 4 kids and going back to school to fulfill her lifetime dream of becoming a teacher, Linda S., had put her health on the back burner. When she was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, she could no longer ignore it.
“One day looking in the mirror I decided it was time for a change,” Linda S. said. “ I signed up at my local Snap Fitness and started making a real effort.”
Linda quickly fell in love with her Snap Fitness’ Zumba classes and weight training. At her heaviest she weighed 195 pounds. She’s now down to 140 pounds.
“It took a year to really get the results I wanted, but it was all worth it,” she said. “I had tried crazy diets and shakes before, but it was exercise and nutrition that finally worked.”
She still struggles to find the balance between her own health and caring for her kids, but she works at it every day. She’s now aiming to reach new fitness goals and personal records.
“I watch what I eat and I exercise,” she said. “I now know how important my health is and I feel better than ever.”
Way to go Linda! We’re proud of you and all your hard work!
