I had always struggled with my weight, but after college my weight completely ballooned out of control. I managed to lose some of it by myself, but had hit a wall and was in danger of gaining it all back. That is when I decided I had to make one of two choices: personal trainer or surgical intervention. Having known people who had bariatric surgery I knew that one must still make a lifestyle change. Knowing this fact, I began researching area trainers and happened upon BOE’s website. They sounded like they had a plan, even for people like me. After meeting with my trainer I knew BOE was the right place for me. Since beginning my training at BOE I have lost inches and pounds. I have also been able to accomplish my goal of running a 5K which is something I hadn’t done in almost 10 years. Thanks to BOE I am able to now run every day and enjoy a much more active life.
