Sunday Stories is a series that showcases individuals who overcame some of their toughest times by focusing on fitness & wellness. We're honored to share with you Troy's Story:
"I was 16 years old in high school and was obese at 260 pounds. I didn’t exercise nearly enough and ate absolutely whatever I wanted. Then came the “Olympic Weightlifting Team” ran through my high school. I had a random interest and joined the team.
I went to practice three times a week to begin, and started to become educated on health and fitness through the school trainer. Within a year I lost 40 pounds and was in love with everything health and fitness related. Two years later I was more passionate than ever and had lost 90 pounds and had a complete lifestyle change that was the best decision I ever made.
Today, health and fitness is my passion and life, striving to get better each day. This energy will be brought to goal mine and I want each and every member to feel this same passion that I have for health and fitness; it’s not a quick fix, it’s a lifestyle change."
