What (who) brought you to Reign?

I was looking for a gym close to my house and stumbled upon the website.

 

What is the most significant change – whether social, physical, mental…you have experienced since you have been here?

Definitely physical strength.  For most of my life I have focused on cardio/conditioning, so training at the gym has really taken my weight training to a new level.

Oh… and I am no longer afraid of Pit Bulls…

I love Kiko, he is the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet.
