First Step – Sara’s journey
“I had been dragging my feet for quite some time before finally opening the door to Subversus two and a half years ago. I had always been an active person, a consistent member of local gyms and fitness studios, but had no idea what to expect when it came to functional training… One day I finally decided, “today is the day”. I walked down the stairs, into that basement and have never looked back.”
Meeting with a Coach
“Would I be strong enough?”
“Could I keep up?”
Quickly, I found out that the answer was more about tailoring each workout so that it would push my personal fitness level, not about what everyone else might be doing and that’s actually the point. Many people have the notion that you have to be strong and know how to lift a barbell before starting with Subversus. I was one of those people. I was intimidated by the idea of a class full of regulars staring at me, the new girl who could barely do a push-up, and for a while that thought was what held me back from signing up.
“From day one I knew I was hooked. The workouts are never easy, but one of the best things about Subversus’ Workout of the Day is it’s capacity for customization. Every single workout can be tailored to your current abilities, so that no matter your level of fitness that first class, it’s the perfect starting point. When I started at Subversus I certainly wasn’t familiar with all of the movements that comprise a typical workout, but the incredible coaching staff is by your side the entire time, guiding you, pushing you, cheering for you, and picking you up when you’re down.”
A new lifestyle
“I can honestly say walking into Subversus is my favorite part of the day. My time spent at Subversus puts me outside of my comfort zone, but in the best way.
What truly sold me on Subversus was the community. Never before had I experienced a group of people who were so welcoming and supportive of each other; I literally thought to myself one day, “Why is everyone being so nice to me?” When you’re the last one on the floor and feel like giving up, your classmates are right there helping you across the finish line.”
