I've experienced a total shift in body and mind since beginning to take classes at Mint. I have lost 20 pounds since starting at Mint in August and feel exponentially more confident, toned and strong. I currently take a mix of Booty Barre and Pilates classes (both mat and reformer) and try take class 3-4 times a week. Taking class has really made me alter how I approach my health in general. I found that once I started working out consistently, it was actually harder for me to SKIP a workout than get the motivation to go (now that's the easy part, because I am motivated by the results I am seeing).
I also started eating healthier once I started seeing results from class. I don't restrict my diet, but I do try to eat according to Michael Pollan's simple piece of advice (he's the author of The Omnivore's Dilemma): "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants." As I started to see more results, it motivated me to keep coming back to Mint regularly and to keep eating healthier. It's all cyclical!
The shape of my body is totally different than it was 10 months ago, and my metabolism has also radically transformed. I'm excited to share this story because I think it shows how ANYONE can achieve the fitness goals they set for themselves.It took me a while to find the thing that worked for my body, but now that I have found Mint Studios, I'm completely hooked.
