I have tried to write this five times now, and I still can’t figure out where to begin, or how to put my feelings about Amplifly into words.
This place is my safe haven, a place of security for both my mind and my body. I started here because I thought ‘wow, that was the most fun I have ever had working out. I like it, I want to come back.’ But holy guacamole, this place has become SO much more than that.
1. I have a blast… it’s hard not to. Awesome music, awesome lights, awesome themes.. I think you get where I am going. My face hurts (from smiling) as much as my body, each time I leave.
2. The people. I mean seriously, where did they come from? It’s like Ali put out a flyer that said ‘only hiring badass angels’ and managed to find all of them. The people, excuse me, my FLYfamily, are incredible… and that word doesn’t even do them justice. They push you, motivate you, encourage you, support you, love you, in ways I could have never imagined. I have never thought ONCE ‘I can’t’ when I enter the studio.. because with them, I know that I most certainly can.
3. The studio. If I could set up a cot in there and not get caught, I totally would. The aesthetics are everything. I instantly walk in and feel like a rockstar. It’s absolutely stunning.
4. The change… Get ready for it, because it comes out of nowhere. Not only does my body thank me each time I go, but oh my lanta, my soul thanks me more. When people say ‘tell me three things about yourself..’ I have always wished that ‘strong’ and ‘confident’ were words I could use. Well, look out world, because now I am both. For the first time ever, I have muscles, and not just bean poles attached to my body. But most noticeable is the way I feel about myself. I feel good, like really good. Like someone switched my brain out for someone else’s and I don’t recognize this confident person, good – and NOT because of what I see in the mirror, but because of what is happening between my ears. I believe in myself.. and that is something you can’t put a price on. THAT is what Amplifly, and the people (the FlySquad in it’s entirety) do for you – they make you love yourself
