Lindy Mathis – Burn Boot Camp – Rochester, MN
Before I started working out at Burn, I was constantly exhausted and struggled with back and neck pain with arthritis from past injuries. Some days I felt twice my age. Same as a lot of my Burn ladies, I am always on the go with two kiddo’s (ages 6 and 10) activities, working full time, and trying to find time for our family. I spend all day taking care of other people at work and home, and this left little time for me to take care of me. I hadn’t worked out in or out of a gym in over 8 years. Last year, my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and it flipped my world upside down. Trying to manage life with this new stressor consumed me. It was time to make a change, and do something to take care of myself, to challenge myself, and to give me a focus. I continued seeing ads on Facebook for Burn opening a new location here in Rochester for free. I was skeptical because nothing is ever free!! A few friends and I decided to try it out together.
Six months later I am down 20 lbs., 12 inches, and over 7% body fat. I feel strong, healthy, energetic, and I have confidence back. This journey has been challenging, but it has changed my life, given me an opportunity to take care of myself, to have an outlet for those difficult days, and to challenge myself to be the best version of me. I have formed new friendships, support, and a family at Burn, and learned that I NEED to take time for me. Through my focus meetings, I learned how to balance my macros, ways to eat cleaner, and that “you can’t out train your diet”. I went all in, and haven’t looked back. The support, encouragement, and energy I have received from our Head Trainer, Leyton Bohr, has genuinely changed my life. He is truly one in a million.
