March 2015 will be my One year Anniversary with FitZone. It has been a great year! I first noticed the sign advertising a weight loss program called “FitZone”outside a local school. After several weeks, I worked up the courage to call and make an appointment. I knew that it was definitely time for a change. I needed to lose weight and was struggling alone. I phoned Jackie Shaheed, owner of FitZone, and agreed to meet to go over the program in more detail with her. I did and I was hooked. I can honestly say that joining FitZone was one of the best decisions of my life. But I almost didn’t join! The day before my appointment I was going to cancel.
Not sure why exactly. I think I was afraid. Afraid that this was another weight loss program for me to fail at. I just couldn’t go through that again. When I called Jackie to cancel she told me to come in, sit down and talk to her before I made any decisions. I did and knew that this was the program for me! I signed up and have not regretted it one bit. When I started this program I met with Jackie once a week for weigh-ins and consultation. I attended Strength training once a week and unlimited Zumba classes. I made a point to attend as many Zumba classes I could. The weight was coming off!! Jackie gave me encouragement. She reviewed my food diary and let me know what I could do to improve my eating habits. She knew I could do it. She’s been there herself and understands the struggle. She’s very passionate about this program and the connections she has with her clients prove it! I can’t get enough of this program. Jackie keeps it fresh by continually adding more classes to the schedule – I am now taking PIYO, Fitcamp, Insanity and any other special class that Jackie adds. I have made so many great friends at FitZone! We support each other and are always there for one another. I can’t believe that a year has gone by already… and I lost 80 pounds!!! I have never felt better!! I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!!!
