“I found HOF when I was walking my dog at Meadowbrook Park. I saw the group working out and I thought, “Wow, I want to do that again.” The next day I was there and I am still there after going on four years. At age 73 I feel I have found the exact discipline I need. The hard work, development, confidence and expertise that has come to me…..has done so with the patient training, and encouragement of Shawn and Nicole. I have learned I can rely on the friends and support I have found in the group. We all work hard and take pride in each other. It’s not easy, sure there are times I am just plain sore… have aches and pains. The payoff is when I can see and feel the changes and strength I have gained. In February I decided to take part in the weight loss challenge and I have lost 13 pounds so far…Yahoo!. HOF is the place to mold yourself mentally, and physically (and by default – emotionally).”
