Corey Springer is my hero! When I joined the Center, I weighed over 260 pounds. I kept to myself, and did my cardio workout on the treadmill tucked in the corner. For about two months, I watched other members training with a personal trainer who constantly smiled, was involved in the sessions, and helped clients reach goals. I watched them daily in contrast to my reflection in the mirror where I did not see results. I decided it was time to meet this trainer and ask for help. I was embarrassed, shy, morbidly obese, pre-diabetic, and suffering from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). The moment Corey and I discussed my goals, he encouraged me. As our sessions started, I struggled. I pushed sleds, performed TRX workouts, lifted weights, and did cardio all in a fast-paced, high-intensity setting. At the start, I could hardly jog 40 yards. I could not do a single push up. Eight months later, and 110 pounds less, I can do over 25 push-ups in a minute and successfully run 5Ks. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Corey, the most amazing trainer and, most importantly, the most amazing person. Corey has been my hero for eight months now. He took time to sit and talk when my mindset wasn’t positive or when I didn’t give my best effort during the workout. Corey is extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and committed. I am no longer morbidly obese. I am not considered pre-diabetic. Most importantly, I no longer suffer from PCOS. Thanks to Corey I am not the overweight girl in the corner on the treadmill. I am proud to be the fit girl lifting weights in front of the mirrors. Again, thank you, Corey! I also commend you on your service to this country. God bless you always.
