I had gained 52 lbs, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, and I had never really taken care of myself and it had all finally caught up with me. Before I started with LYF, I worked out a bit, and I never thought that what I ate affected you so much. I'd have bad days, that would turn into weeks, that turned into months and would then just give up all together. It was very frustrating. I realized, after the great results my friend was getting from the LYF programs, that I could fit LYF into my budget and it was one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. The BEST thing about working with LYF is that they actually care about you. Everything else they provide is just a perk. It is also great to know that they want the best for you and they give you all of the options available to help you make the best decision for yourself. I never thought I would have so much fun on a program and LYF pushes you just the right amount to show you how great you truly are. I can honestly say that I have LYF to thank for that.
My journey with LYF started with nutrition - I was completely clueless as to why I wasn't losing any weight but with LYF's help I realized I was a CARBOHOLIC!! LYF was there for me as a mentor and a friend and they have just the right amount of encouragement and discipline to get me to my goals. Everyone has their struggles with busy lives while trying to incorporate a program that you know you will maintain. I have found this with LYF. My initial goal was to celebrate my daughters high school graduation last year and to be able to look back on all her photos and be proud of how I looked and now my motivation is small but gradual changes in my body. I am so lucky to have found LYF, they have made me a better version of myself!
I joined LYF because I knew in my head I wanted my life to change. My relationship with food was broken and I exercised because 'I should'. That was 6 months ago. Today I'm stronger and LYF continually challenges me to come at this from a place of self love. I have been learning to work out and be active because I see myself as valuable, that I'm worth taking the time for. I still have work to do but that change I knew I needed in my head is now a work in progress in my heart. I am learning to love my post baby body right where it is at all while working toward my goal. I can't imagine what my life would look like if I hadn't joined LYF; life and fitness are a journey and LYF is a beautiful part of mine.
My journey with LYF is by far the best decision I ever made for myself. I have struggled with my weight pretty much my whole life and I had tried many different programs in the past without any long-term results because they were not "real life" friendly. They worked for a short time but if they weren't followed to a "T" you failed. In the short time that I have spent with LYF, they have helped me see that you don't have to live a life full of restrictions in order to meet your goals. They have taught me to forget all the "rules" associated with food and to just listen to my body. No two people are the same so what works for one may not work for another but that doesn't mean you should quit or try to be something you are not. On top of the tremendous amount of emotional support and growth, the program we get with LYF is phenomenal. They are not only amazing mentors but they are also patient, kind and so easy to talk to! I am so grateful that LYF has come into my life and helped to show me light where there has always been darkness!!
I was one of those girls who would try all the fads, shakes, different diets, wraps. None of these products worked for me, so I decided it was time for a new approach. I had heard of LYF from girls at work and decided to join. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! LYF works for me and my needs and I am able to create workouts and meal ideas suitable for my life. I am proud to say that after 8 months of work I feel better about myself, how I look and my self-esteem has tripled. LYF has changed my life for the better! Even when I had an extremely stressful time in my life it helped me channel my stress into positive outlets. I am extremely grateful for their persistence and for pushing me as I need it!
I started with LYF in the summer of 2015. At that time I was 170 pounds, and floundering with weight loss. I had worked with a few trainers in my area, but had limited success.... I found with other programs I had to either be on a deprivation diet, have shakes or pop pills to lose weight. LYF has a refreshing approach that involved REAL food, exercise and they also pinpointed a few other areas I could work on. With LYF's help I lost weight and inches and I have learned to work out smarter and relax with food choices.... My weight loss journey is far from over, but I know I have LYF cheering me on and they're always there provide help and encouragement :)
I owe my new outlook on life to LYF. I was feeling pretty low and unwell before I started the LYF program. My confidence improved after the first day and I am forever grateful for that. They know their stuff and they are inspiring and very understanding. The team is warm and welcoming and Amy has a wicked sense of humor. They have gently pushed me to work smarter and lift heavy weights I didn't think I could ever lift. They believed in me and now thanks to LYF I believe in myself as well. I recommend LYF to any woman who wants a great program and a renewed sense of self.
