"This Is Not A Gym, This is My Second Family"

Everyone has a different story as to what brought them to BBD. If you would have asked me years ago if I would belong to a gym, I would have laughed at the thought.

A little over 4 years ago my wife of 15 years suddenly passed away. From that moment, my life changed forever. I was now alone to care for our 3 young boys. The first 2 years were somewhat of a blur. If it wasn’t for key people in my life I don’t know what I would have done.

It pained me to see the worry on my boys faces whenever dad wasn’t feeling well. I decided I needed to make a change, not only for me but for them.

One night I was online looking at locations near me and I came across a Groupon for BBD. I set my mind to it and went. I still remember my first day feeling so out of place. As I left that day I wondered if I would ever be able to keep up with everyone!

I refused to give in and decided to see it through. Now I feel I can keep up on almost any day. I added personal training in addition to morning boot camp and couldn’t be happier with the results.

I am in better shape now than I was 20 years ago! Thanks so much to Joey for helping me get there. You are truly awesome. It is now a year and a half later and I still find ways to push myself every day.

Everything you read here is true. This is not just a gym, it is my 2nd family.

I have made many new friends and met so many awesome people during my time here. It is clear we all really care about each other. If you ask me that same question now about being a gym member now…I would say I can’t be without it!
