    How did you feel before you found TrAk? I wasn't seeing results before TrAk. I tried a lot.... barre, yoga, kickboxing, spin. Some of it was fun, but I wasn't getting a lot out of it. Then I had a membership at Planet Fitness for a couple years and went often, but again it was just like checking a box to say I worked out but didn't get any gains really. I started at TrAk on a Monday (leg day... bad idea haha) and couldn't walk for a few days. That's when I realized I wasn't as strong as I thought I was and this might be the way to get me where I want to be. Two years later, I am stronger than ever. How do you feel now? I have muscles y'all!! Its ....

I love how curious they are.

Now, I hate missing a Monday-Friday workout! I have grown to enjoy each day of the week (I’m still working on enjoying Wednesday, but I do go). I look forward to going to the gym, even at 5am. Best Place to travel that you’ve ever been? ....
