65 pounds GONE Danyelles' experience with Texas Fit Chicks Boot camp

"My name is Danyelle Becker and I’m the proud mother of 4 year old twin boys.  During my pregnancy I stopped working out because I was either too tired or did not have time. After the birth of my sons, I found myself getting bigger and bigger to the point that I stopped even stepping on the scale. To lose weight, I tried other boot camps, personal trainers, diets, and workout routines. Nothing worked for me, until I started with Texas Fit Chicks in late August of 2011.  I trained with LeighAnne at her 9:30 class in McKinney. I live in Murphy and this was a 30 minute drive each way! LeighAnne is an AWESOME trainer who really brings out the best in you.

The first few months with Texas Fit Chicks, I wasn’t consistent with the program; I would skip class and not eat properly. In December, I realized that if I wanted a change, I NEEDED to change!  I started looking at class differently. This was my time that no one else could take from me. That year for the holidays I got a new Polar heart rate monitor, which I still use and love.  I found myself always trying to beat my last calorie burn from the previous class.  I made a game out of it.  It was really great seeing all the dates I worked out and how many calories I burned. As simple as it sounds, I believe this has been a big part of my weight loss. At the beginning of the year, Texas Fit Chicks came out with the Transformation meal plan. I followed the plan and stopped drinking for the month.  As a result, I lost 13 pounds. 

Once I saw the weight coming off, it pushed me to keep it going.  I always had this dream weight in my head of 135lbs.  Once I hit that goal I decided that I was not happy with the way my body looked so I kept going.  A few months later I was slowed down by a hip injury which eventually required surgery. During this time I decided that I wanted to help other ladies change their lives and went through the process of becoming a certified personal trainer.  Shortly after my certification, I had hip surgery. Once I was back on my feet, I opened my own Texas Fit Chicks location in East Plano. My life has changed in so many ways within the past year. Back then I never would have thought I would be where I am now, both physical and mentally.  I’m training a great group of ladies who keep me motivated and inspired to keep improving.  I love seeing their change and I am so proud of the work they are putting in to achieve their goals.  

I would like to thank Melody for creating Texas Fit Chicks program. I would especially like to thank LeighAnne for motivating and pushing me to obtain my goals. Her relationship has had a huge impact on my life.   I would also like to thank my ladies who show up 3 times a week at 5am to train with me so we can obtain own goals together. You all inspire me!" - Danyelle
