“When I joined this team it changed my life for the better. Throughout my life, I’ve never had many close friends; most of them would come and go. However, when I joined this team, I found that I gained many new friends, and they are family to me. Also, I’m a perfectionist, and many of the workouts can be challenging, but in the long run, they motivate me and inspire me to become more physically fit and to dream big.”
