Jimmy came to us in 2018 after moving here from Milwaukee and feeling like a fish out of water. “I joined Focus Fitness because it made me feel a part of a family and got me back on track to building muscle. I always tell Dave that I can’t go to sleep at night unless I get my Focus Fitness workouts because it serves as an escape from reality for me. Any gym can provide you with equipment to work out and a program to follow, but Focus Fitness personally cares about how you train and your journey outside the gym.”
Jimmy found us on Google and enjoyed reading the reviews, so he filled out the Contact Us form and set up a call to talk to Dave about joining. “At a time when I hardly knew anyone in Austin and had just started a new job, talking with Dave made me feel like I belonged. He’s someone you can instantly tell is authentic and cares about what’s best for you. He didn’t have to sell me on Focus Fitness, because just by the questions he asked, I knew he cared about helping me reach my goals. I initially thought having a phone conversation about joining a gym was a little bizarre, but it made me realize how much Dave cares about the people who join. It was the beginning of joining the Focus Fitness family.”
One of the things Jimmy likes best about the program is the variety of exercises. “I normally am a creature of habit and it’s a struggle for me to break out of any routine. I hadn’t lifted weights since high school and both Dave and Paymahn helped me embrace new weight-lifting exercises.” One of his goals was to build more muscle, especially in the upper body. Since joining in July of 2018, he has gained more than ten pounds of muscle and does not strain how he used to when it comes to carrying heavy objects. He personally enjoys going back home and showing his parents all the unique exercises he’s doing.
Jimmy had to overcome the initial fear that he would not be able to do a lot of the exercises. “I appreciate how each workout program builds on the last and helps me understand the form first before jumping into lifting heavy weights.” Working with Focus Fitness has given him an extra gallop in his step. “I don’t feel as tired in the morning after getting a workout in and it’s craving the next one that keeps me going throughout the day. Appearance is often the first thing people notice about you, and I was always self-conscious about my own. Seeing the concrete results of building muscle the right way has given me the confidence to pursue a new relationship in my life.”
Jimmy says the unique thing about Focus Fitness is “we all come from different backgrounds and walks of life, yet we all share in cheering each other on every workout. It’s a great feeling working out with a group of people who care about their goals as much as your own. If there was an acronym for Focus Fitness, the two “F’s” would undoubtedly stand for family. Whatever point you are at in your own fitness journey, Focus Fitness meets you there with endless amounts of support. They give you the confidence and motivation to keep going because they know you and your body. Focus Fitness gave me a reason to feel a part of Austin and got me back on track in my own life.”
