I’ve been training at Metroflex Gym in San Marcos for almost two years now. I love the atmoshphere, working out here is amazing because there is a awesome support system of people that really care. I’ve had several tradgedies happen over the past two years working out here from losing a friend too early in life, to several family illnesses and deaths and through everything, Daniel and Michelle (the owners of the gym) have been there for me and helped me work through greif and pain. I honestly don’t know what I would do without them in my life sometimes.

Daniel and Michelle convinced me over this time to train for a NPC show. I started training for my first show in April of 2012 and competed on June 22nd. Daniel trained me himself, and I absolutely loved working with him. He was availale via phone all the time and on top of that would send me motivational text messages which really helped on those days when I felt like giving up. On top of that on several occasions during my training I had people come up to me and tell me how awesome I was looking, or that they could really see my progress when I was in the gym and really needed some motivation.

Michelle personally did my spray tan for the competition which was awesome. I went from around 16% body fat in April to 8-9% body fat in June. I ended up placing 8th out of 22 girls in the Bikini category. It’s funny now looking back at pictures of myself from before I started working out here. I didn’t look bad by any means, and I was skinny, but looking at how far I have come there is a huge difference in my mind. I could never allow myself to return to what I looked like before. I wouldn’t want to work out anywhere else, Metroflex Gym in San Marcos is like my second home. And they treat everyone like family.
