Read About Her Journey

Miriam has lost 70 pounds since April 2018!Miriam Ross

In April of 2018, I realized I could no longer chase my 2-year-old son without getting tired.

I was always out of breath and lacked energy. I needed to make a change. I saw my 6 and 8-year-old daughters going down the same path as me – emotional eating.

I started with an elliptical for 30 minutes and changed my diet. The weight started to go away and I got stronger.

I began attending Apex Centre group classes. They helped work every muscle. To date, I’ve lost almost 70 lbs! I still do group classes daily and I’ve found my favorites, which include Kickboxing, Zumba, and HIIT. I now work out seven days a week and I’m training for a Sprint Triathlon in the spring.

Thanks to the Apex Centre childcare and willpower to change, I can chase my now 3-year-old, do the family spin and boot camp classes with my daughter, and fit into my clothes! I went from a size 20/22 to a 10/12 jeans, and XL shirt to M/L.

Am I finished? No, but I’m healthier and so is my entire family!!

We at the Apex Centre hope Miriam continues to reach her health and fitness goals!
