oTo be honest, when I joined true Athletics I was very nervous. I am very quite but the work out team talked to me and made me feel welcome. I do not feel as shy anymore. Now I know every one’s name. Sometimes when I have bad days Monique will listen to me. That really means a lot to me. Overall, I’m more comfortable with my body, I wear shorts now to go to the gym. I have build more body strength too! I feel like I not only belong to the gym, I feel like part of the family. Thank you for having me here. I have many more years to go!
