Read the amazing Mel Leiber Burn Bootcamp Huntersville Weight Loss Story below…in her own words…
“Burn Bootcamp has been a wonderful journey for me. My friend and neighbor (Andrea Geisinger -also a BBC’er) kept telling me I needed to
give it a try. It was my opinion that my weight and lack of stamina would inhibit me from doing the workout. I also used the “I’m too old” excuse (I’m 53). Andrea kept after me and I finally relented and decided to give it a go.
I was “somewhat” correct in that in the beginning it was SO hard to do a burpee, Russian twist, push up …. You name it, they were ALL hard. I was slow and I won’t even begin to talk about my form. However, Devan and so many women (some I didn’t even know at the time) were there encouraging and supporting me that I set my mind on that I could do it, one day at a time.
I started in October 2013 and I feel terrific. I really think the changes I have seen in my body have changed my outlook on things in life. I feel more confident, have more energy and overall, a happier person. I will continue this journey as it gives me a means to a healthy life with which I can more enjoy life with my friends and family (husband Bill and daughter Shelby, 10 years old). It is important to me to set an example for my daughter that exercise is vital to your life.
Burn is really like working out with a bunch of friends. It’s empowering to watch and be a part of a group of women who grind it out day after day and keep working on bettering themselves which will enrich their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
Burn Bootcamp has an air of determination and grit, I watch other women work really hard to achieve their goals, it’s very motivational and inspiring to me to be apart of that energy.
Devan and Kyle (my trainers) and the other trainers who I have worked with all get my deepest gratitude for pushing me and believing that I could do this; they are a blessing to all of us. I truly look forward to my workouts. While Burn is an individualized effort somehow I feel that we are all in it together, encouraging and supporting each other to better healthier lives.
Over the last year I have lost 24 pounds my body fat went from 28% to 24%. I love the fact that my clothes are too big. My husband paid me the sweetest compliment I have had in a while he said, “ your body is like you are 25 again” … woohoo … it doesn’t get much better than that! I definitely will “keep moving”!” 53sjdskjfs
