Success Spotlight : Jason Barlow
My fitness adventure started with a FitBit and a single footstep. I was determined to lose weight. My goal was to take 15,000 to 20,000 steps a day, no matter what was going on in my life. That’s where it began. And it led me to Snap Fitness.
I never used to be a gym person. I didn’t know how to use most of the equipment and didn’t want people watching me. But I wanted to take my fitness to the next level so I started a Snap Fitness membership.
I was nervous. At first, I would only use one machine, the treadmill. I would jump on it and walk for up to two hours a day. People must have thought I was crazy! But I dropped 30 pounds and it felt great. Suddenly I wanted to do more.
I knew I needed to add strength to my life. I had tried a few supplements and was eating protein but I wasn’t seeing results. I was curious about resistance training. I was still nervous about training in front of people. But I quickly realized that people are kind and supportive when you are doing that improves your life.
I was able to find a program that suits my capabilities. I learned the joy that comes with committing to a routine. It’s not the amount of exercise that you do but that you keep doing it. I caught the bug! I went from being an ambivalent gym person to someone who never missed a day. The gym is just such a great atmosphere. I’ve made many new friends and I’m living a much healthier lifestyle.
I’m coming up on my one-year fitness anniversary. I’m still doing my cardio — I usually do a five-kilometer run every day — and staying on my program to build muscle and definition. It’s all given me such a new lease on life. I’m excited to see what happens next. I’m so grateful to Snap Fitness.
