Markham Personal Trainer Stories

Lina Della Serra – Markham Personal Trainer

I joined GO GIRL Transformation Center at the end of 2010 after a stress filled year with no physical activity. I had gained 14 pounds in one year and was frustrated and afraid that this was the mid-life spread that was now creeping up on me, but I also knew that this was an excuse and I needed to do something. I surfed the net and found Go Girl Bootcamp, I read Dan’s and Rosie’s testimonials and decided to give it a try with very little expectations. Little did I realize just how significant that decision would be for my life.

I remember my first trial class, I was so exhausted all I could think of was how I was going to get through the class and how could I ever sustain a workout program this intense. Well 2 1/2 years later I am still here and now find it hard to stay away on the off days!

Since I joined I have lost 28 pounds of fat, I dropped 5 jean sizes, 8 inches off my waist, 4 inches off my hips, I feel energetic and on my way to feeling and being fitter and healthier than I have ever been…and that includes my 20’s! It has also changed my limiting beliefs about what is possible for my body.

I have changed my perspective on exercise as well, and no longer look at my workouts as only a means to burning calories, but an opportunity to grow stronger, to feel revitalized and energetic, to push beyond my limits and to simply enjoy the opportunity to move and share space with a community of woman that inspire me with their own stories and successes everyday.

These woman, lead by the amazing trainers are the reason that I have began to take on fitness challenges and train for races that I thought would never have been possible at this stage of my life. I am so grateful to the amazing trainers and every girl that i have worked out with at Go Girl for believing in themselves enough to show up …for it gives me the courage to believe and to show up for myself!

To any girl that is thinking about joining I would can only say you write your own life story …. what do you want yours to say?

My life before joining GG transformation centre was being active the as much as I can. I joined a gym 2 years prior to GG which meant going to the gym 3-5 times a week and if not the gym, doing some kind of physical activity.

I can confidently say that I lost 35-40 pounds on my own. When I joined GG just over a year ago, I felt like my weight hit a plateau and really wanted to build body strength and tone; I haven’t looked back since!

Since joining GG, I participated in my very first program with the SI6 second group of girls. I lost 8 pounds which was my goal and 2 inches off my waist.

If you’re on the fence about joining, JUST DO IT!!! Don’t ever doubt yourself; when you join GG Transformation Centre, you will automatically be welcomed and supported by not only amazing and dedicated trainers, but also fellow members who will support you 100% and push you to be the best you can be.

My fitness life before bootcamp was a cycle of failed attempts. I was never able to keep myself motivated and on track enough past the one or two times that I got myself pumped up for.

As of right now, working out is like an amazing drug to me. I just crave for it more and more. I try to go to Markham bootcamp classes three times a week, and I also incorporate at least three yoga classes as well. When I am in yoga, I find that the strength that I have gained and the persistence to push on in bootcamp allow me to challenge all of the poses that I used to only admire in magazines.

Although I still have a long way to go, I am now stronger physically and mentally. My energy level has increased, I am leaner and stronger, and I am in the best shape of my life since having my daughter. Being able to push through the workouts gives me confidence to challenge things that I would never have done before.

I would say “What are you waiting for? You have nothing to lose (but weight) and a whole lot to gain”. Go Girl Bootcamp isn’t just a place to go to “try” to get in shape. You get results because there are wonderful coaches to help keep you on track and make sure that you are doing things correctly to get those results. There is also the community vibe that is absolutely incredible.

On the days where I thought I couldn’t, I looked over and saw ladies ten years older than me, ladies who have just had babies, and other mothers just like myself with a crazy schedule who manage to dedicate that one hour to themselves and we all push on together.
