I was a very active student/person until I came to college in the US. I stopped playing basketball and running. Part of the reason I stopped was because life was just so busy in college compared to high school and it's also because I had a campus job. In my opinion though, I feel like the main reason was because I didn't have the self discipline to make myself go to the gym when I was supposed to be there. There was no coach to ask me why I didn't show up . There was no one I had to answer to and just like that I stopped my active life. Other than the fact that I started gaining weight, not working out became a huge concern when it became hard for me to even walk up two stories without running out of breath; my heart rate was very low and I just couldn't take it anymore. I wanted to go back to my active lifestyle. I heard about Sal‘s program-StrongHER Girls™ and I wrote to her. I was very honest to her about my fitness journey and I told her all I felt was going to make her coaching for me the best. And she listened and for every program she created for me to follow, she put into consideration all I had told her. And that's why I think she's the greatest coach anyone can ask for. Putting her clients needs first is the best thing you can ask from your trainer and Sal has got this. Getting back to the gym is very hard. It's very challenging and most of the times, we give up because we just can't keep up. I remember missing gym for an entire week and I was so embarrassed to tell Sal what had happened because I thought she'd judge me but she did not. She rather encouraged me to keep going and mentioned that the first few days and weeks were going to even break me but that was okay. So yes, with her coaching you'll be motivated to keep doing your best however difficult things get. With Sal you'll not only become fit but you'll have another kind and beautiful soul to call a friend. I'm so glad I joined StrongHER Girls™ and I'm sure everyone who joins her team will become the best versions of themselves. It's just a matter of time.
