“There’s a lot of noise to sift through when it comes to weight-loss. A lot of quick fixes. A lot of easy streets that, let’s face it, end up going nowhere. Most marketing is geared towards how easy the weight-loss plan is, and how quickly you’ll drop weight if you just do X, Y and Z. Those generally only work in the short-term, and you end up right back where you started. I’ve read a lot, and spent a lot, only to come to the inevitable conclusion, which I was desperately trying to avoid, that most things in life come to you when you put the work in. As much as I wanted it to be true, there was no magic, there was diet and exercise. Much to my surprise, there was also a lot of noise to sift through when it came to nutrition and exercise as well. Many years and dollars later, I think we’ve finally found the genuine article.
I really wanted a workout buddy that would consistently come to the gym with me, because you’re more likely to succeed if you can be held accountable. It took a long time to convince Jordan that he should come to the gym. At the time I was a member of another gym (that shall remain nameless), and he refused to go there because he didn’t know how to use any of the weights or equipment, and felt that it would be too intimidating to go there. He had also heard from other people, and read online, that not all of the trainers knew what they were talking about, and some of them weren’t even in shape themselves. He told me that he didn’t want to take advice from someone that didn’t themselves take fitness seriously. I couldn’t argue with that, and that’s when he told me about Trench.
You definitely have to put the work in, there’s no denying that! After our first workout I couldn’t move properly for at least 4 days… but you get stronger, and it gets easier (and then you only hurt for 1 day). The Trench Team members are all very supportive, and live and breathe fitness. They don’t mind walking complete novices, like Jordan and myself, through really basic concepts; in fact they were super excited about it! I’m glad that we found a judgement-free space, with true professionals, that seriously know what they’re doing. They know how to get you to where you want to be, no matter what your fitness goal is. Thank you Neil, Tyler, and the rest of the Trench team. You’re the BEST! We can’t thank you enough for giving us the tools we needed to be successful, and I can’t wait to see how far we can take this.”
