Janine's story

👏 Check out this week’s featured client – Janine!!!

Janine is one of our amazing personal training clients! Her story is inspiring and one that we are truly proud of! She has truly made a transformation, not just physically, but mentally as well.

“You’ll have good days , bad days, overwhelming days, too tired days….
You’ll have “I’m awesome days “, “I can’t go on days”. You will have every excuse in the book not to go days…
You’ll have days you feel like you have not come far. Or come anywhere at all…
But then you will have days that you stumble upon photos like these that are a reminder WHY you show up…
These photos are less than a year apart…
The photos on the left show someone that was miserable and embarrassed on the INSIDE.
A person that smoked 2 packs of cigs a day.
A person that could not go up the stairs without getting out of breath.
A person that was in so much physical pain I couldn’t be on my feet for more than a few hours- preventing me from doing what I loved.
The photos on the right show someone that is comfortable in her own skin and strong – not just physically but most importantly mentally.
A person that is over 5 months smoke free.
A person that can not just go up the steps with out getting out of breath. But a person that can keep up and feel great after her workouts at the gym.
A person that is able to be on their feet 12 plus hours a day – doing what I love and was born to do.
It took me 38 years to realize that the number on the scale does NOT define you.
It’s the gains you accomplish in every other aspect of life… it’s being comfortable in your own skin. it’s for the first time ever being truly proud of something you have achieved… it’s about being strong. It’s about failing at things – which will only make you stronger and give you the drive to work harder…
Being apart of 13 Stripes Fitness has helped me in ways I can’t explain. It has truly transformed me not just physically.. it has taught me lessons about myself that I never knew I needed. It has taught me I AM stronger than my excuses. It has taught me that showing up is half the battle. It has taught me that it’s not too hard – it’s just difficult. And it has taught me I can do anything I put my mind to.”
