Stephanie B.

"My name is Stephanie, I am 34 years old, married with 2 children. My personal trainer is Omar Ali, President and Founder of Formula4 Fitness. I have a few good reasons why I am a member of Formula4 and I would like to share them with you. Not a long story but a "snapshot" of my life.

A few years ago, my parents were both diagnosed with terminal cancer, both in their early 50's. My mother lost her battle with pancreatic cancer. I had given birth to my second child, a son, a week before. Needless to say, the physical and emotional stress from just having a baby and losing my mother was overwhelming. I realized how fragile life can be and how precious it is all at the same time. It was at that point, I knew I needed to make some healthy changes, to do all I could not to share the same fate and be around as long as possible for my family and loved ones. Formula4 has guided me to do just that by teaching me about proper nutrition, living a healthy lifestyle and sticking to it, and I've even learned a little about myself! That I am stronger than I ever imagined! Not just physically but mentally too! It has given me a positive release from the stresses of everyday life.

So for me, being a member of Formula4 is not just about looking my best and feeling fantastic (although that is wonderful too!). It's about reshaping my life's path to get the most out of it. So many of us take our health for granted, I believe it's just human nature to do that. I'm not perfect at it but, if nothing else, I've learned to be more conscious about how I treat my body and what goes into it. I think that's really what matters in the long run.

"Thank you Omar" for always keeping me accountable when I stumble and never giving up on me or what I am capable of accomplishing in the gym!! You make it fun to train and I always look forward to our sessions!"
