The importance of Finding your weight loss "COMMUNITY"

Hi, my name is Leslie, and I’m the Studio Manager at iLoveKickboxing, in Orchard Park.  Finding ILKB has been one of the rewarding experiences of my life, but my path here hasn't been easy.

My personal fitness journey began in 2015. After suffering some personal setbacks, I found myself at my heaviest weight of 225 lbs and feeling awful everyday.  One day, I decided enough was enough, and dragged myself back in the gym. I fell in love with group exercise classes like Zumba and Body Chisel, but soon realized that I needed more than a workout to achieve my goals.  My diet needed an overhaul. I was that person who ate out all the time, and often ate in response to my emotions. I needed CHANGE and a support system. 

I LOVE KICKBOXING CHANGED ME FOREVER!

Since starting with "I LOVE KICK BOXING" (ILKB), I’ve gained even more confidence and strength. The workouts change and challenge me daily, so boredom and plateauing are never an issue. My passion for helping people continues to grow each day. ILKB provides more than a workout though.  Not only has it made me physically stronger, but it has provided an irreplaceable foundation and support system within its member base. They have become my beloved "fit-fam," and I look forward to seeing them everyday.  The only better feeling than crushing out an amazing workout on those bags, is doing it with people I love! 

But, even with the incredible workout and support of ILKB, I knew I needed an equally effective nutrition plan to maintain and continue my results. That's where 95 Nutrition comes in! Food has always been a challenge for me, meal prepping an even bigger challenge. I didn't want to sacrifice the enjoyment of eating flavorful food or feel hungry all the time. With 95 Nutrition, I get to eat delicious and amazing food, and there is no guess work of what I should be eating or how much. In addition to all of that, the support I’ve received from the 95 Team, responding to any questions or challenges I've had, has been helpful beyond words. 

To date, I've lost over 80lbs, feel healthier and happier, and better understand what properly fuels my body. My transformation is still a "work in progress," but with iLoveKickboxing and 95 Nutrition, I'm confident that no goal is out of reach.
