"Being overweight is hard. Working out is hard. Choose your hard.”
This quote changed Debora's life.
About 2 years ago, Debora was 33, a mother of 3 (two of which were 12 months and a newborn), and morbidly obese. A car accident kept her from being active or able to live the life she had before. She was healthy, active, fit and happy!
Shortly after her first daughter was born, she began to gain weight at a rapid pace. Three and a half months after giving birth, she found out she was pregnant again. Once she gave birth to her youngest, she was the heaviest she had ever been.
My body was under incredible amounts of stress due to the weight gain and constant pain. Between the injuries I received from the accident and the weight gain, I entered a very dark season in my life. I couldn’t function. I cried all the time and nearly took my life on multiple occasions.
That was when Debora read that quote: "Being overweight is hard. Working out is hard. Choose your hard.” She then decided to choose her "hard"; and that was when Debora's fitness journey started.
She joined Langley Fitness World and was teamed up with a trainer that would change her life!
Kalena Morton pushed (and continues to push me) me harder than anyone else and was SO committed to seeing me succeed. She was always available for me for any questions I had or anytime I wasn't feeling great about my progress. Because of Kalena, I have no choice but to keep going. I feel like I owe it to her. With her help, I am on the right track and feeling better than I've EVER felt!
After 15 months of consistent hard work, Debora lost 58lbs and 14% body-fat. She is the strongest and happiest she has ever been!
Being at Steve Nash hasn't just been about losing weight for me. It's about the community and support I get from not only my trainer, but all the trainers, and other members! My daughters love the daycare and it truly is a second home for us. I owe all of that success to Kalena and the Steve Nash Langley team!
Debora recognizes that her fitness journey is far from over, but she's loving every step! Due to the progress she have made, Debora can now play for hours with her kids without being in lots of pain.
Through this whole journey, yes, I've lost weight and have gotten healthy and strong but the biggest reward has been the example I've been able to set for all 3 of my kids. I chose my hard, and I've never been happier!
