I’m ten times stronger than I was when I started. Personally, I would say of where I was to where I am now, I owe them tremendously. I don’t know how to put in words what they’ve done for me in the last six months. It’s night and day from where I was to where I am now. Physically, mentally, everything… I just don’t know how to put it into words.
What is You Name and Occupation? My name is Andy Lee, I’m 43 years old. I’ve been #METAddicted for about six months now. I’m a corrections officer and staying fit is part of the job, plus it makes me feel better. It makes me enjoy my kids more to be more active with them.
How Does Metabolic Meltdown Compare to Other Gyms? I’ve belonged to other gyms. You know, on and off throughout the years. I go in, I run the treadmills, lift the weights and it’s just becomes a routine. I found out about here through a co-worker of mine and I came in. As soon as I walked through the door I knew this was something I wanted to do. The energy was here, the atmosphere was great, and from that point on, I was addicted to it. It’s far better than anything I’ve ever done before. I miss not coming the days I can’t come. I actually miss coming here. I look forward to it and I haven’t said that in years.
How Would You Describe the Workout? The workout is… I don’t know how to explain it. When I’m done I’m drenched-- I can literally wring my shirt out. It’s challenging, kicks my butt. When I’m done you know you’re done and you know you had a great workout. Its keeps you moving, keeps you active and the 45 minutes goes by very quick. You come in and boom you’re done. You don’t even think about it. It’s something you want to do.
Were you Intimated by The Workout? When I first came in I was very very intimidated because I was out of shape and because of my age but with the cross section of people here, you don’t have to worry about any of that. You come in, do what you can do at your own pace. There’s no judgement, there’s nothing. You get into a zone when you’re here and you block everything out and you do it. I’ve met numerous people here that I have become friends with.
How are The Metabolic Trainers? The trainers are awesome. They know everybody by name and that was very impressive to me. If you can’t do a certain exercise, they’ll give you another one to do, if you have an injury they work around it. They are inspiring. They’re always right there. Right next to you going, ‘you can do it, give me one more rep-give me one more rep, you can do this”. You know it brings an extra push to your workout.
