Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day, but Stephanie Clayton decided working with a personal trainer was the best way to achieve her fitness goals.
“I was tired of saying I could do it myself and then not delivering,” Stephanie says. “I knew I needed help, and I knew that the investment in my health was worth it.”
Though she lost 40 pounds before she began working out at Fitness Together, Stephanie admits she didn’t go about it the right way and her weight had begun to creep up again. Since beginning at FT-Belle Meade, the busy pharmacist has continued to lose pounds and has whittled 4 inches off her waist while dramatically increasing both strength and flexibility. Her lung capacity has also improved so much that exercise-induced asthma no longer plagues her during her workouts.
When she walked down the aisle on May 22, Stephanie says she was in the best shape of her life. But her commitment to fitness doesn’t stop at “I do.”
"My wedding day was a fairy tale because I didn't have to worry about the way I looked," she admits. "I was able to walk proud. My FT trainers helped me uncover real health goals, not just ‘I have a wedding coming up, and I want to look good.' They have helped me create a lifelong commitment to health and fitness. I don’t want to ever look like my "before" picture again!”
