Melissa’s Story:

“My life instantly changed on January 6th, 2012. I was intimidated walking into Hitch Fit that day. I was not in the best condition. I had little to no self esteem left and was severely depressed. Little did I know at this time I would make one of my best new friendships. I sat on the futon waiting for Rachel to finish up with a client. My nerves were getting to me and as I was getting ready to make my dash out the door into my car, she says “Hi, are you Melissa?” This was the last day of a life which, was being wasted away by depression & excuses.
It took rock bottom for me to pick up the pieces. I started taking steps to improve my emotional well being. I stepped on the scale…181 pounds, I got pinched…results… I was obese for my age and height. I told her that 4 ½ years ago I was diagnosed with Thyroid Disease and had surgery to remove half of my thyroid. My weight was an everyday struggle. I would look in the mirror in disgust. I was always very outgoing & ready to take on the world. I wasn’t anymore. I was told by my doctor that I may never be able to lose the weight because with a thyroid condition weight is a hard side effect to control. I gave up that day…I threw in the towel. My depression became worse over time. I was put on anti- depression medications that did not work. I was turning into a recluse. I wanted nothing to do with anyone. I pushed everyone I loved out of my life. I started losing myself and everything I worked so hard to achieve. Rock bottom…I hit that….I hit it extremely hard. For a year I beat myself up emotionally. I tore up every ounce of confidence I had left in me. I saw my family’s concern and laughed at them. “Who were they to…blah blah blah?” Well, rock bottom came with a huge price for me to pay.I found an amazing life coach by the name of Amy. It took me a 1 ½ to work through the torment I caused to myself for so many years. So emotionally…I was good. It was now time to prove to myself I could change who I was on the outside. After I stepped off the scale, I sat down to talk with Rachel about the program. As I like to say…I swan dove straight into the program and didn’t look back. I was 110% ready when I started that Monday morning at 6:00am. By 6:00pm that same night I wondered what in the heck did I just get myself into. It felt like my body was going to fall apart. But I went back for more and kept at it. Rachel motivated me and pushed me to do things I NEVER thought I could do…like 405 lbs on the leg press.
Maybe I was not the easiest of clients. I doubted my ability to lift heavy…”are you sure I can do this” probably came out of my mouth at least twice a week. She’d look at me and say “you can do heavier”. Sure enough I could. I worked out 3 days a week with Rachel & to my disliking I did 6 days of cardio. No matter how much my body ached I pushed through each workout. I’ll never forget the first time she made me do the prowler. Everyone at Sol Cantina was watching. I was so embarrassed. The famous red hill scared me the first time I came face to face with it. But I did it…I accomplished what I thought was inevitable. Rachel pushed me to my limits because she knew I could do this. She needed to be tough on me. I needed her to be tough on me. I remember thinking of me as the devil saying no you can’t & Rachel being the angel saying yes you can. The diet on the other hand was easy for me. After a month of eating “clean”, I felt like a brand new person. It was weird. I finally had energy and could take on the world. I created my own hitch fit recipes and my family enjoyed them with me. I think the hardest part of the diet for me was giving up my diet Dr. Pepper. I would drink about 6 or 7 cans a day. NO ALCOHOL….not even 1 beer? Absolutely NOT!! I honestly thought how am I going to go out and not drink a beer. Well I did. I drank water & brought my food with me to some functions. Working out with Rachel and losing my weight gave me my life back. I would never trade my experience for anything. I enjoyed every workout and all my time spent at the gym. All of the trainers were a huge support and cheered you on as you defeated each goal. To my family & friends, thank you for putting up with any outbursts (like the pizza cravings in the beginning) and keeping my focus on the goal & the continuous support after I had reached my goal. To A.J., Emily, James, Jamey & Josh it was awesome getting to know you all and continue with the great job you are doing for your clients! I want to thank Rachel for her constant support & guidance throughout my transformation. She truly helped bring me back to life. I look up to you in so many ways. You are inspiration to me and I know others feel the same. I don’t know if I will ever be able to repay you for the good that you have done for me. Thank you for making me believe in me again and erasing years of doubt & unhappiness. You rock!!”
