All Rolled Into One Amazing Experience
"Soulift. I can't imagine life without it. I am completely committed to my workouts. They are mentally and physically demanding. I keep pushing along because, I am a better at life when I Soulift. All because I feel good. Actually I don't just feel good, I feel great. I am strong, physically and mentally." Jenny Summers
"When I signed up for Summer Bootcamp in June of 2016, I didn’t know that I would find a gym that would change my life. I suffered a back injury a local gym 3 years ago when I was performing Kettlebell swings. The lower back injury resulted in severe pain and loss of feeling in my right leg. A few weeks following my injury, I went in for lower back surgery. My back surgery entailed shaving my lower disc, to relieve the pressure of the disc lying on my nerve. I recovered well, but I was now reluctant to get back into the gym.
The next 2 years consisted of walking, a little jogging and Beachbody workouts from home. I was exercising at least 5 days a week, but I wasn’t seeing any results. I refrained from any exercises that called for jumping, lifting anything heavy and Kettlebell’s to avoid another injury.
That changed when I joined Soulift. When I first told David of my prior injuries, I assumed he would think I wouldn’t be a good candidate for the Soulift experience. I was wrong! David didn’t hesitate, and was confident that he would help strengthen my core, relieve my back pain and focus on increasing my overall strength.
I felt comfortable at Soulift from my very first whiteboard workout!
I slowly started seeing results, and decided to sign up for a five week challenge towards the end of last summer. At the time, I couldn’t run a mile and never thought I would finish the challenge. The challenge was a physical one, but the daily workouts helped me prepare for the final workout, “ Murph”. I was proud that in the end I was able to complete “Murph”, which consisted of a 2 mile run, 100 pull ups, 200 push up and 300 squats in under an hour. I also went from not being able to run a mile, to running 5 miles. I had lost several inches, 10 lbs and was ready to keep going!
Since joining Soulift, I am in better shape than I’ve ever been. I look forward to the intense workouts that now include jumping, lifting weights and Kettlebell swings (everything I told myself I would never be able to do again)! I have seen a big difference not only in my weight, but my strength and my overall quality of life. I live pain free, and sometimes forget I had back surgery. It’s hard finding time to get into the gym (I’ve seen 5am workouts, and 8pm workouts) over the last year, but I love that there are so many options to accommodate our busy lives.
Thank you David, and the Soulift family for all of the support that you provided me over the last 9 months! I’m not stopping here though, David continues to challenge us, and I will continue to challenge myself every day! "Missy Harvey
